Now that The Quilt is housed at Te Papa in Wellington, most of the following is for historical information only.

At school displays, we like to talk to talk to the students in class groups (usually two classes at once) about what HIV and AIDS are, how you contract HIV, how you don't contract HIV (including condom use), and what it is like living with HIV/AIDS, as well as talking about The Quilt and letting them have a good look at it and talking about it amongst themselves and with the people accompanying The Quilt. These sessions normally take up the full hour long period, and then we do it all again with the next class, concentrating where possible on the 14 and 15 year old students, but very short .

When The Quilt is 'on tour' to a particular region, it is common to do this five or six times a day for two weeks, with a different school in a different town each day

Below are photos from some of the many Displays of The Quilt taken during various school visits in the North Island. Some are from private photograph collections while others were taken by NZ Quilt Project personnel.

The photos are arranged in approximate geographic order, from north to south, and if there are photos from more than one visit to a school, in approximate chronological order.
