The sixth annual STREETSIDE takes over Britomart Precinct on Friday for an evening of readings, declarations, live storytelling and more. Performers, poets and writers of all stripes will be sharing the mic and drumming up a response to the space they stand on. Expect hilarity, profundity and the thrill of the pace. From Takutai Square and inside the magnificent rooms of Auckland’s oldest heritage buildings, writers will riff, recite and recount on notions of homecoming, take flight in a shoe shop and rise up on a loading platform. Don't be late! Events are all run concurrently and run 15 minutes on the clock. An extraordinary line-up awaits you:

Ruth Bayley, Alie Benge, Janet Charman, Catherine Chidgey, Joanna Cho, Dr Gráinne Cleary, Elizabeth Cox, Bri DiMattina, Nadia Freeman, Charmaine Papertalk Green, Herschel Herscher, Claudia Jardine, Nathan Joe, Simone Kaho, Jessica Howland Kany, Sarah Laing, Anthony Lapwood, Wilma Giordano Laryn, Daniel Lavery, Linn Lorkin, Jazz Money, Paul Moon, Airana Ngarewa, James Norcliffe, Te Kapua O’Connor, Emily Parr, Paddy Richardson, Ant Sang, Christina Sanders, Ruby Solly, Murdoch Stephens, Anne Tiernan, Rushi Vyas, Simon Wilson.

15-minute showcases in intimate venues, designed to entertain and inspire. Win a Deadly Ponies bag or earn yourself a pair of Allbirds. Entirely free of charge.

Proudly supported by Britomart Group and Heart of the City.
