Last week in May 13, I traveled with Richard Nunns expert in ng taonga puoro and poet Glenn Colquhoun to the Far North. They took their art to schools and libraries and visited little schools in very remote areas. The welcome, interest and warmth we experienced was wonderful. It was a trip organized by the NZ Book Council and my photos document part of their journey ‘The Two Doctors Tour’.
NZ Book Council: Glenn Colquhoun and Richard Nunns toured Northland, and this is what a student from Kaitaia College thought.’I have never heard poetry like that before. In classes, on paper, in films, poetry was one dimensional for me until now. To see it filled with life and power and passion was so incredible for me as an audience member and an aspiring writer.’
