Join Abbas Nazari author of After the Tampa - From Afghanistan to New Zealand
The heart-rending story of Kiwi Abbas Nazari, who escaped the Taliban as a child, was adrift at sea on a sinking boat, was rescued from certain death by the Tampa, was caught up in an international news story after Australia refused them entry, who found home in Aotearoa and who grew up to become a Fulbright scholar, highlighting the plight and potential of refugees everywhere.
Twenty years after the Tampa affair, Abbas tells his extraordinary story, from living under Taliban rule, to spending a terrifying month at sea, to building a new life at the bottom of the world. A powerful and inspiring story for our times, After the Tampa celebrates the importance of never letting go of what drives the human spirit: hope.
“From child refugee to Fulbright scholar – this story is extraordinary”
Event will go ahead in Level 2 and is fully refundable (less booking fee - if any- if it is cancelled due to Alert Level changes)
