In October, Gavin Mitchell hosted a series of events in Cultural Heritage Workshops across New Zealand with Yair Shahar, Phase One Cultural Heritage Product Manager.

The workshops were an opportunity for key cultural heritage organisations in New Zealand to learn about how organisations around the world are using Phase One Cultural Heritage solutions to efficiently digitise their collections to the highest standards. Attendees were able to ask questions about techniques, standards and solutions during the workshops.
