Victory Mini-Fest

Victory Boxing Gym
Fri 21 Oct | 6.30 pm

What says poetry slam more than a boxing ring?

Time to take your gloves off, Whakatū, for a night of scintillating alliteration, logophile uppercuts and a rhythmic pummelling from some of Victory and beyond’s greatest voices.


Anna Dean + Bek Coogan

Fairfield House
Thu 27 Oct | 7.00 pm

Come partake in the ultimate commitment to yourself.

This interactive ‘wedding’ ritual invites you to take a vow to deeply commit and honour YOURSELF. An antidote to society’s pressure to 'put a ring on it', this rollicking slice of homemade evangelism is led by performance artist Bek Coogan, aka Oona Verse.


Umar Zakaria

Mon 24 Oct | 10am, 1.30pm, 6pm, 8pm

Does the time of day bring out different capacities of our human spirit? Tui-winning jazz bassist Umar Zakaria presents the Sun Song Suites, four concerts exploring the human construction of time through our relationship with the sun.
