Fighting for a World that Does Not Yet Exist: The Necessity of Activism

Saturday 13 May 2023, 3:00 PM – 4:30 PM, Kiwi Hall. $20


As a word, “activism” is only about 100 years old – yet activists and movements for change have become a regular feature of social, civic, and political life in the 21st century. However, activism is about human beings motivating and confronting other human beings to change, thereby being a fundamental human activity. Four prominent Aotearoa New Zealand activists, Denis O’Reilly, Dame Catherine Healy, Liz Mellish and Shaneel Lal share their absorbing personal and political journeys of words and actions with Guyon Espiner.

(Please note: Tāme Iti was on the original billing; however, due to unforeseen medical events, he has unfornuately had to pull out of this event. In his stead, Liz Mellish MNZM will be stepping in. All other details about the event remain the same)
