A History of Prisoners and Produce on Mataimoana | Mt Crawford

Located at the top of Mataimoana | Mt Crawford, at the north end of the Miramar Peninsula, is the hulking remains of the Wellington Prison. Permanently closed in 2012, it is the most visible remnant of a rich history of Māori, prison, and military occupation. Presented by Kate Curtis as part of the Wellington U3A lecture series on 15 March 2024, this talk uses images and stories to share this history, as well as that of its enduring legacy: The Miramar Prison Community Garden.
