Ngā Taonga Sound & Vision is the New Zealand Archive of Film, Television and Sound Ngā Taonga Whitiāhua Me Ngā Taonga Kōrero. The archive was formed by the amalgamation of the New Zealand Film Archive Ngā Kaitiaki O Ngā Taonga Whitiāhua, Sound Archives Ngā Taonga Kōrero and the Television New Zealand Archive between 2012 and 2014. We are excited to bring New Zealand’s film, television and radio collections together at Ngā Taonga Sound & Vision, where they will be cared for by our specialist staff and in dialogue with each other tell richer stories about our country and its peoples.
Our name, Ngā Taonga Sound & Vision, represents a continuity between past and present. It draws from the names of the organisations that came together to form this new integrated Archive. It also reflects our commitment to New Zealand’s cultural heritage, the people and places recorded in our collections, the histories and stories told, and the collection objects themselves – all as types of taonga. Ngā Taonga Sound & Vision remains dedicated to collecting, protecting and connecting Aotearoa’s audiovisual heritage with the widest possible audience.
