Tuatara Open Late: The Jazz Edition

7 June 2018

Art, music, books, talks, beer, wine and food. A changing programme of after-dark events on the first Thursday of every month.

At this special jazz-flavoured edition of Tuatara Open Late, Bella Kalolo and band perform live.

Emily Perkins hosts the City Gallery Book Club to discuss politics, poetry, and plans for the future with Pip Adam, Brannavan Gnanalingam, and Nicky Hager. Read The Interregnum, Manifesto Aotearoa, and Smith's Dream ahead of time, or just enjoy the lively conversation.

Take a tour of the exhibition This Is New Zealand, and hear Nigel Patterson (The Black Seeds, Fly My Pretties) perform on Michael Parekōwhai’s extraordinary carved piano sculpture.

Presented in partnership with the Wellington Jazz Festival.
With support from Tuatara, Seresin Estate and Radio Active.
