Free - Koha appreciated

Join artist Catherine Macdonald for an evening of art and writing. Catherine will facilitate a discussion about artist/writer collaborations, exploring connections and fostering relationships between the writing community and the art world. Sunday 4 February, 7pm | MANAAKI NUI | Free - registration required.

This is also an opportunity to take in the exhibition small holes in the silence, whose title comes from the poem ‘Rain’ by Hone Tuwhare, and for the audience to consider their own written response to the artworks.
