READY OR NOT: DAMON SALESA - THE MICHAEL KING MEMORIAL LECTURE

READY OR NOT: DAMON SALESA - THE MICHAEL KING MEMORIAL LECTURE

In Island Time Damon Salesa argues that while NZ has passively allowed a tacit segregation to take hold between Pakeha and Pasifika, the future of this country is Pacific, whether we are ready or not. Setting a course through the “islands” of Pacific life in NZ – Ōtara, Tokoroa, Ōamaru and beyond – Salesa envisions a country becoming “even more Pacific by the hour” and challenges us, in this year’s Michael King Lecture, to embrace our Pacific talent, and finally act like a Pacific Nation.

Please note: this event is part of the Auckland Writers Festival and is not managed by BWB.
