HOMAGE TO THE RIVER

Last year, the 290-kilometre-long Whanganui River became the first river and the second resource (after Te Urewera) to be given its own legal identity, with the rights, duties and liabilities of a person. To celebrate this mighty body of water join the river’s kaitiaki, speaking on behalf of the river and upholding its values. In an event that includes readings from Ockham New Zealand Book Awards longlisted poet Airini Beautrais’ book Flow: Whanganui River Poems, and the recorded contemporary and traditional music of Auaha, the Whanganui takes centre stage in Auckland.
