WORD 2022 FESTIVAL – DONE!
Nearly 80 events, more than 150 participants, over 15 different venues, more than 7,000 in the audience, and a whole team of dedicated volunteers and staff including a largely new core team. We are still buzzing from the energy and lively engagement with some of the best writers, thinkers and performers from Aotearoa and abroad over the last week of August.
Our friends at Christchurch libraries blogged throughout the festival, check out their comprehensive coverage here. Our wonderful booksellers UBS have an excellent online store for you to pick up all those books you’re hankering to read post-festival!
Thank you for joining us for a festival jam-packed with storytelling and ideas. We hope you enjoyed it as much as we loved delivering it to you. We’ll see you soon for some more events… we’ll tell you all about those soon!
