19 May. Free entry.
Gather with us on Sunday afternoon to celebrate Issue 4 of HAMSTER Magazine; An Aotearoa Review Anthology.
With 52 reviews, from contributors spread across Te Ika-a-Māui and Te Wai Pounamu, HAMSTER’s Aotearoa Review Anthology Issue addresses the (lack of) representation of contemporary artforms in established mainstream media. We will celebrate the magazine with a launch on Sunday May 19 featuring readings and performances from magazine contributors including Danielle O’Halloran and others to be confirmed.
A welcome and readings will begin at 1:30.
Following the launch, free copies of the Anthology can be picked up from the distribution centre nearest you. We encourage you to make a visit to your local distribution centre, say “Kia ora e hoa mā!” to your neighbours, and pick up a copy for yourself and friends.
