Guardians of the NZ Cartoon Archive

Chaired by Ian F Grant, founder of the NZ Cartoon Archive, the Guardians meet once or twice a year with those ATL staff most involved with the Cartoon Archive. The primary role of the Guardians is to promote greater awareness of the Cartoon Archive and the educational and historical importance of editorial cartoons through publications, exhibitions, lectures, etc.
