If you haven’t seen it already, it’s worth checking out Masterton’s cool little gallery space in containers, ConArt. It features exhibitions, performance space, working studios and a space for local artists to sell their artworks. Well worth a look if you’re over that way (but check opening times first – they’re open Weds to Sat 10am – 4:30pm). You can find them next to Aratoi.

There are also poems on the containers and I was delighted when I heard that my poem ‘Albatross’ (from The Glass Rooster’) has been included. You can listen to ‘Albatross’ here on RNZ. It’s based on a real-life female pair, not uncommon in the seabird world.

Thanks to Masterton woman, Chris Daniell, you can now enjoy outdoor poems all over Masterton. Go, Chris!
