The iconic Meteor Literary Salon returns for a stellar Matariki at the Meteor!
A special Matariki focused salon will see four leading New Zealand poets dynamically performing their work!
The poets in question? Literary legends…
Hinewirangi Kohu-Morgan, artist, poet, and visionary, known as an important harbinger of Māori poetry written in English.
Te Kahu Rolleston, Ngaiterangi born writer, activist, battle rap artist, actor, scholar, educator, poet, and national spoken word champion!
Vaughan Rapatahana, poet, and author, known for often delivering his poems with a kōauau soundtrack backgrounding his words and having his works published in both his main tongues – te reo Māori and te reo Ingarihi.
David Eggleton, Aotearoa’s Poet Laureate, and recipient of the Prime Minister’s Award for Literary Achievement in Poetry!
Don’t miss your chance to see these four poets travel beyond standing still in an emphatic oral delivery of their work. Vaughan Rapatahana will be our MC and there will be some of our artists work available for sale at the event.
July 22, 7pm. Tickets $10 General Admission (including a glass and nibbles).
