The WORD Festival is coming to town – find out more

We’re stoked to sponsor WORD Christchurch for the second year in a row. This festival of books, storytelling and ideas is taking place from August 27 to September 4 and is one not to miss!

Check out the key UC supported events for 2022:

  • An Evening With Liane Moriarty, bestselling author of Big Little Lies and Nine Perfect Strangers, both of which have been adapted for the screen.
  • Secondary Schools Programme where 400+ secondary school students will spend a day at Ilam campus with presentations by six different writers.

We’re also excited to share that UC student Tessa Boraston is a guest programmer for WORD Christchurch through the PACE programme. She has curated Mana Wāhine, a kōrero between three recently published Māori authors about influence and craft.

There are heaps of free events throughout the week worth checking out (that won’t break the bank!). Find the full programme here, where you’ll find a number of UC staff, students, alumni, and writers in residence involved throughout the festival.
