Foundation Students help launch NZ-Australia Literature Festival
Posted on 18 December 2014
The first ever Australia and New Zealand Festival of Arts & Literature was held recently in London. The Foundation was represented at the special launch function by Foundation students Kawiti Waetford and Thomas Atkins – with their guest New Zealand soprano Somi Kim.
The trio performed New Zealand compositions in celebration of the launch and found it inspiring listening to the youngest Man Brooker winner ever, New Zealander Eleanor Catton speaking about her book The Luminaries and the evocative images of New Zealand she had used.
