What’s the haps?! 29th June-5th July

Here’s to the start of the semester break, yay! If you’re going to be staying in Christchurch, here’s what’s on next week:

All week:

  • Boulevard Arts Market:
    31-33 Worcester Boulevard, 9.30am-4.30pm.

Wednesday 1st:

  • Public lecture: Why vets should support moral agency in animals:
    Room 612, Karl Popper, 1-2pm.
    Fiona Dalzell will be discussing the moral dilemma that vets face when treating animals. The reality of the work is different from the pre-graduation dream. The owner of the animal is the client, not the animal itself. So how should vets act when asked to ignore what’s best for the animal? Go to the lecture to learn more about Dalzell’s practical model of moral agency for animals.
  • Bone Thugs-N-Harmony after-party:
    R18, 11pm-3am, Dux Live.
