The Mix 3: Kiwiana

Location
Worcester Boulevard
Venue
Christchurch Art Gallery Te Puna o Waiwhetu
Time
06:00 pm

Rediscover the Gallery after dark as it comes alive with a vibrant changing calendar of special events combining people and art with music, great food, beer and wine, pop talks, debates, films and live performances.

Have a different kind of night out and embark on a new cultural exploration over each of the six editions of the Mix 2016.

Join us for a not-so-serious look at the role art and culture play in New Zealand’s national identity. Pop into the Gallery for a drink after work, and hear three local culture makers and appreciators use their wit and wiles to debate whether New Zealand still suffers from cultural cringe; take in a Kiwiana-themed tour of the galleries, or watch Kiwi classic Goodbye Pork Pie so you can better judge the quality of the remake.

The Cultural Cringe debate will feature the hilarious and thoughtful musings of James Dann (host of RDU’s breakfast show and, according to his Twitter page, procrastinating scientist and erstwhile musician), Gemma Syme (all round arts extraordinaire and content manager at RDU) and Rachel Morton (cultural event creator, facilitator badass and public programmes manager for Alternative Radio: RDU98.5FM since 1976 at Canterbury Museum).
