Every week on Culture 101 we check the pulse of a different area of Aotearoa. This week it’s between the Tararua ranges and the Pacific: the Wairarapa.
We talk to writer, artist, photographer and event organiser, Madeleine Slavick.
Slavick directs the Wairarapa Word programme and chairs the residency programme NZ Pacific Studio, who recently selected Vera Ellen as their inaugural Singer-Songwriter in Residence for 2023
Ellen appears Saturday 30 September alongside other musicians with a local connection in Wairarapa Word’s Inside the Song in Carterton.
For something a little pricier, next Saturday the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra features alongside fine food and wine at Martinborough new establishment The Runholder.
