Start Listening - Tauranga Arts Festival

In 2018 Taika Waititi accused New Zealanders of being ‘racist as f***’ – 11 months later 51 Muslims were killed in Christchurch by a white supremacist. Time to start listening to the other side of the story, says lawyer and novelist Brannavan Gnanalingam (born in Sri Lanka) who is joined by Renee Liang, editor of anthologies of migrant women’s writing and a second-generation Chinese New Zealander; and Samoan-Pakeha actor and award-winning playwright Victor Rodger, as they talk to Scott Campbellabout the cultural and social impacts of being ‘different’.
