Asian Voices in Aotearoa | Pukapuka Talks (Nelson Arts Festival)

Suter Theatre
208 Bridge Street
Nelson
Hear from three contributors to the new anthology, A Clear Dawn: New Asian Voices From Aotearoa New Zealand: Angelique Kasmara, Rose Lu and Chris Tse. In celebrating the publication of the first anthology of Asian writing in Aotearoa, we explore several key questions: Is there is increased visibility of, and reader/audience interest in, Asian voices? What challenges and opportunities—personal and/or professional—impact on Asian NZ writers? Brannavan Gnanalingam will invite perspectives from the three contributors: novelist Angelique Kasmara (Isobar Precinct), nonfiction writer Rose Lu (All Who Live on Islands) and poet Chris Tse (He’s So Masc). Chaired by Brannavan Gnanalingam. https://www.nelsonartsfestival.nz/event/asian-voices-in-aotearoa/ Thanks to Auckland University Press, The Cuba Press, NZ Society of Authors and Asia NZ Foundation
