Adventurous Women

2 September 2018 | WORD Christchurch Festival

Presented by Kathmandu

We close the festival with an inspiring event that brings together our theme of adventure, and our celebration of 125 years of women’s suffrage in New Zealand. Four extraordinary women tell stories from their adventurous lives and talk about what drives them to take risks, in their life and work. Hear Hollie Woodhouse, extreme sports star and editor of Say Yes to Adventure magazine; Lilia Tarawa, who grew up in Gloriavale and escaped as a teenager; Michelle Dickinson aka Nanogirl, science communicator and adventurer; Margaret Austin, Palmerston North Sunday school teacher turned Paris showgirl. Hosted by broadcaster and author Miriama Kamo.
