I figured I best put some info and links here so you can see and “enjoy” what I been doing. I’m going to treat this blog like a proud grandmother who I forgot to tell important shit to, so bear with me.

I wrote an essay and you can read it HERE

AOTEAROA FUTURISM


Here is the AMAZING radio documentary produced by Sophie Wilson and co-presented by Dan Taipua. If Afrofuturism is where science fiction and technology meets popular culture of the African diaspora, could it be happening in Aotearoa too? Sophie and Dan talk to various Space Maori and Astronesians including myself. I’m at the end of part two. Very buzzy and nerdy and South SPacific, you’ve been warned – such a blessing to be on this!

Listen here:
Part One
Part Two

HOROEKA READING GRANT

Recently I was contacted by author Eleanor Catton (yes that one!) who has established the Horoeka Lancewood Reading grant to support New Zealand writers read and research for 3 months. I was blindsided with this surreal offer (to the point I thuggishly asked if she was lying lol). She wasn’t and I accepted, although I’m still in shock with gratitude. My reading is going to be a ‘used-book bootcamp to enlightenment’. While volunteering in a charity shop weekly, I will serendipitously choose and share the donated works of retro experts, feel-good quacks, random geniuses and buzzkill academics. Wish me luck lol.

MORE INTENSE CONVERSATIONS
