Auckland at the crossroads: What makes us Auckland? Are we a city of tribes? The first city of the Pacific? An economic powerhouse? An international city? Will a new political structure change who we are?
LATE 02 features a panel discussion, moderated again by Finlay Macdonald, which asks “What makes us Auckland? Are we a ‘tribal’ city, and will a new political structure change our cultural fabric?”. Guest panelists include Don McGlashan; Chris Brown, co-writer of 8 Tribes: The Hidden Classes of New Zealand; ‘kia ora lady’; social commentator Gordon McLauchlan, Cr Michael Barnett and Dr Chris Harris.
Following on from his successful tour of Europe with Crowded House, Don McGlashan will perform in museum’s atrium. A former member of Blam, Blam, Blam and The Mutton Birds, McGlashan’s music has provided a soundtrack to generations of Aucklanders.
Preceding Don will be a performance from Claire Duncan, lead singer of indie pop-folk band Dear Time's Waste.
Manuel Bundy, considered the ‘Godfather’ of New Zealand’s hiphop culture, also performs on the night.
