You are invited to celebrate the launch of Correspondence Volume One, Issue One

Volume One includes collaborations, translations, and ruminations by contributors working from Ōhinehou to Madrid, Narrm to Kirkiriroa, and in between. This first issue features work by Terry Craven and Joan Fleming, Shivanjani Lal, Faith Wilson, and Kirsty Dunn and Kommi Tamati-Elliffe. These contributors use poetry, paint, and photocopied methods to share a conversation on the page. The issue is also available for listening through an audiobook edition, recorded by the contributors themselves.

Join us to hear from local contributor Kirsty Dunn in kōrero with Correspondence editor, Hamish Petersen, and join in a group listening to a selection from the audiobook. Share a snack, a drink, and collect your free copy of the journal.

Access: The Physics Room’s Montreal Street gallery space is wheelchair accessible via The Arts Centre’s Market Square carpark, accessed by car from Worcester Boulevard, driving east from Rolleston Avenue or north via Montreal Street before Worcester Boulevard. An all-gender, wheelchair accessible bathroom is down the hallway at the back of the gallery, just ask a staff-member or volunteer to show you.
