Hawke’s Bay Readers and Writers Week

2020 News Brief 2020 05 04T011000.236Z

Napier will host four events that are part of Hawke’s Bay Readers and Writers Week from 16-18 October, after the Hawke’s Bay Readers and Writers Charitable Trust successfully applied for funding from Napier City Council’s pandemic Recovery Projects Fund.

The events, which are part of the Hawke’s Bay Arts Festival, aims to open up dialogue about community issues through the window of literature.

Council’s Recovery Projects Fund is an initiative arising from its Napier Recovery Plan.  The fund aims to assist with building resilience and encouraging innovation among Napier businesses, Iwi/hapu, community organisations, social enterprises, and Council. It has a particular focus on collective benefit.  

The Fund opened on 1 July. Applications are assessed as they are received until the fund is allocated or within 12-months, whichever comes first. The fund is still open for applications.

Funding awarded to the Hawke’s Bay Readers and Writers Charitable Trust will enable events to be held at Paisley Stage, the Napier War Memorial Centre and Lovecraft Games.

As well as being entertaining, the events and speakers scheduled for Napier include discussion of past and present societal issues by local authors; and provide opportunities, through the two youth events, for families to spend time together and discuss issues such as bullying, belonging, resilience and environmental concerns.
