The director of Museums Wellington has resigned amid the controversial restructuring at Experience Wellington, the city council-controlled arts organisation. Brett Mason, who worked at Experience Wellington for almost 20 years, resigned three weeks ago. In his position at Museums Wellington, he managed Wellington Museum, Cable Car Museum, Space Place at Carter Observatory and Nairn Street Cottage. “I suppose you could say I saw the opportunity to leave, with the direction they’re going,” he said. Mason, who said he was proud of his work to diversify the organisation, including embracing te ao Māori, said he was exploring new opportunities.
