A Talking Culture Symposium - Response

Artists: Kit Wise, Fofoga Setoga Tuala, Michel Varisco, Andrew Quilty, Allan McDonald, Richard Mahoney, Giles Crook

Theme: Talking Culture

The expanded Talking Culture Symposium 2013 will take place over 2 days on the opening weekend of the Festival, 1st June and 2nd June. This year's theme is RESPONSE.

The fatal Canterbury earthquake of 2011 was the greatest natural disaster in New Zealand's modern history. The effects of and responses to this disaster will continue personally, socially and economically for many years to come.  This symposium is our Festival's response to the earthquake. We have invited photographers from Christchurch, Auckland and around the world to show how they respond - personally, artistically and photographically - to natural disasters. They will show through their work how the photographic relationship with natural disaster can be documentary, educational, historical, cathartic, advocational and also very complex.
