WORD Gala: Brave Worlds

30 October 2020 | WORD Christchurch Spring Festival
Presented by Heartland Bank

Our gala night opens the weekend with six of our distinguished writers responding to the shifting world around us. What does it mean to find courage in the face of a global pandemic, race protests, border strife and climate anxiety? Each writer will deliver a short keynote that is sure to provoke both thought and emotion. With Becky Manawatu, Witi Ihimaera, Mohamed Hassan, Laura Jean McKay, Elizabeth Knox and Behrouz Boochani, hosted by John Campbell.
