Every week Culture 101 speaks to a creative correspondent to gauge the cultural pulse of Aotearoa’s regions.

Speaking from Kirikiriroa as the Hamilton Arts Festival kicks off, theatre critic Louisa Drummond joins Perlina Lau to discuss the latest arts and culture offerings in the Waikato region.

Drummond is one of five members of The Waikato Draft editorial team. Spotting a decline in arts and culture journalism, editor Syliva Giles started the e-newsletter and website in August 2023. 

The monthly e-newsletter covers the latest events from gigs, theatre, galleries to the newest restaurant, council news and just ‘plain around town gossip’.
