The Great Divide

ASB Theatre, Aotea Centre

Talks & ideas

A year of surprises, 2016 saw Britons vote to leave the European Union and Americans elect Donald Trump as president, leaving many dumbstruck and locked in an us-and-them tussle across politics, economics, race, gender and geographies.

Join Pulitzer-Prize winning journalist Susan Faludi (Backlash and Stiffed), Australian journalist Stan Grant (Talking To My Country), UK writer John Lanchester (Capital), and Paula Morris (On Coming Home) as they discuss yawning divides and propose possible bridges.

Convened by Andrew Johnston.
