More than just elves, robots, and rockets, speculative fiction uses fantastic and future worlds to critically examine our own. Join AJ Fitzwater and Karen Healey as they discuss modern works by Aotearoa authors, how Aotearoa is often viewed as a fantastic land by outsiders, and the unique perspectives our location, histories, and cultures bring to the myriad worlds of science fiction and fantasy.

Curated and hosted by AJ Fitzwater, one of the 2021 Arts Four Creative in Residence at The Arts Centre, in association with Creative New Zealand, and The Stout Trust, proudly managed by Perpetual Guardian.
