Say it with Flowers - A Tour of Top Wordsmiths
“Say It with Flowers touches taboo subjects, such as politics, sport and religion with wit and topicality”, says Steve Thomas
A tour of top wordsmiths is underway this November, with Arts on Tour NZ, across the nation. Poet Laureate of Aotearoa David Eggleton, the Kiwi Ranter, and the Welsh Kiwi storyteller, the former Bard of Christchurch on RNZ, Steve Thomas, are accompanied by master musician Richard Wallis.
It is rumoured that the English artist Banksy might join the entourage, but as no-one knows who he is, it may be hard to identify him in the crowd.
Say It With Flowers is a title inspired by the English artist Banksy’s famous wall image of a youthful masked flower thrower, flinging - not a Molotov cocktail, but a colourful bouquet of flowers, representing our common hopes for the peaceful resolution to the global issues of our time.
