The Liberal Agenda: 10th-16th June


Is it Sunday night again, ALREADY?! I’m pretty sure having a weekly deadline like this makes the weeks seem like they are going faster…


On Monday, Eugenie Sage is hosting “Achieving a Compact Christchurch”.  It’ll all be about the Land Use Recovery Programme and will feature Dr Stacy Rendall.


There is a group exhibition entitled The Personal is Political opening in Wellington on Tuesday. The launch event is 5.30-8.00pm that night and the exhibition runs until the 23rd. It explores the concept encapsulated in its title. NEAT! Feminist art!
