Performance: Art is a Living Thing – Saturday Afternoon Live

I’ll be reading from my short story ‘Once had me’ on Saturday 3 December at Saturday Afternoon Live, a performance as part of the opening weekend of New Zealand Pacific Studio’s exhibition Art is a Living Thing, which runs at Aratoi Museum from 3 December 2016 to 15 January 2017.

There’ll be music, and a reading I’m really looking forward to by Janis Freegard, from the poetry sequence she worked on as Ema Saiko Fellow at NZ Pacific Studio in 2014 (the same year that I was R.A.K. Mason Fellow at the Studio).

If you can’t join us on Saturday 3 December, I hope you make it to the exhibition over the summer (exhibition details here).
