Rights Information

The New Zealand Quilt Project is a memorial to people who have died of Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (Aids). Making a quilt allows people to grieve and remember. Displayed at schools, marae and shopping centres, these quilts show the human face behind the numbers. Each quilt tells a personal story and the displays are a way of educating and raising public awareness in the hope of breaking down the stigma associated with Aids. American quilts started in 1985 and today cover an area the size of 10 rugby fields. New Zealand’s quilt started on Worlds Aids Day 1988 with a panel for Peter Cuthbert who died 31st October 1988.
Includes interviews with: Warren Butler, Quilt Project Chairperson; Nicki Eddy Quilt Project Convenor.
