Event details

This exhibition celebrates the people, place and community of the Westfield Freezing Works, Ōtāhuhu. It has been thirty years since its closure in 1989.

Just before demolition, photographs, plans and collectible items were rescued from the Westfield site. Items on display will be brought to life by the memories of those who lived and worked there.

Curated by the Te Kura Tāwhiti team at Auckland Libraries, the exhibition covers over a hundred years of the Auckland meat industry.

Exhibition continues running outside of the festival dates until 30 November.
