Cool stuff from the Selectors: plants for changing climates, equatorial forests, and a kiwi graphic novel
Opening Wild Dogs Under My Skirt at Haeata Community Campus was probably a first for the Christchurch Arts Festival, but it was at the request of the poet Tusiata Avia to have it here as this was the place she grew up. The audience was a mixture of the often stereotypical arts festival attendee (of which I fit nicely into) and a great turnout from the Pasifika community. There were family and friends — and a sense that this was an occasion.
Cool stuff from the selectors: time to appreciate the outdoors, music and revisit your mindset.
