Poems Against Sustainability (Sunday)


Sunday 12 June 2022, 1:00 PM – 4:00 PM, Dorset Square. FREE 

(Wet weather venue: Kauri Room, Featherston Community Centre, Wakefield Street)


Experience a unique collaboration created by three local Featherston artists, working together to tackle sometimes uncomfortable discussions about climate change, their relationship to the land and working with nature – through the creation of playing cards.


Expand your mind, have fun and learn how to nurture the planet through card games, conversation, seed bombs, and enjoying a mobile pop-up library with the Tramping Gently Club and Pae Tū Mōkai o Tauira.


Jordan Hamel, editor of the Climate Change Anthology, coming soon from Auckland University Press, will be in conversation and read during this event.
