CTANZ has two major avenues for sharing research and commentary on costumes and textiles, one of which is the annual symposium. (The other is our journal, Context.) For around 20 years, members and friends have gathered in locations throughout Aotearoa New Zealand to share their ideas and passion. It’s a welcoming, informal weekend of wide-ranging presentations and conversations.

The 2022 CTANZ symposium has been postponed to 2023, dates to be confirmed. It will take place in Ōamaru, with a theme of Tradition.
