QuakeStories

The earthquakes that struck Canterbury in 2010 and 2011 are among the most significant events in New Zealand history. QuakeStories was a place to share stories of these and subsequent New Zealand earthquakes.

This site was established by Manatū Taonga / Ministry for Culture and Heritage in partnership with NV Interactive in 2011. Initially only stories could be submitted with functionality to upload photographs added later. It was part of the University of Canterbury CEISMIC consortium (which includes Christchurch City Libraries and National Library), a long-term project dedicated to the preservation and study of information relating to the Canterbury earthquakes. In 2016 Manatū Taonga / Ministry for Culture and Heritage expanded the site’s coverage to allow people to share stories about other New Zealand earthquakes.

In 2021, the stories from the QuakeStories site were transferred to QuakeStudies for long-term archiving.
