About the speaker

I am Tim Kong – the Programme Manager of the Pacific Virtual Museum pilot project. My father is Fijian-Chinese, and my mother is Pakeha. I come to this role after a decade in public education, as a teacher and school leader.

My vision is for the Pacific Virtual Museum to support my daughters as they seek to make sense of their place in the Pacific.
