The WORD Christchurch 2020 Youth Jury presents this celebration of stories across culture and language. Following the translation of the first of 100 books into te reo Māori by Kotahi Rau Pukapuka Trust, youth jurors Isla Reeves and Nelly Campbell-Reeves read an excerpt from Paulo Coelho’s much-loved novel The Alchemist, first in te reo Māori and then in English, with New Zealand Sign Language interpretation by Elizabeth Kay.
This is an accessible, all-ages event that explores both the particularities of and connections across the official languages of Aotearoa-New Zealand. Supported by Rata Foundation.
