Same Same But Different NZ
Same Same 2020...
We are busy planning our programme in 2020, which will be our first festival without Peter Wells. We look forward to bringing you a diverse and entertaining schedule of events, and continuing the amazing work that Peter and our team have put in over the last five years.
If you would like to submit any ideas or authors with books coming out between now and early 2020 please contact us. We will be locking in our programme by the end of August 2019.
New Zealand’s LGBTQI+ Literary Festival
In 2016, Wells launched New Zealand’s first LGBTQI Writers Festival – same same but different. His goal was for the festival to be “an exciting event that makes people think about sexuality, difference and community, stretches their understanding, gives them a few laughs and creates a slightly magic space for two days in February."
The Same Same But Different LGBTQI+ Writers Festival is now in its fourth year, with a proven track record of bold events, strong attendance and stimulating conversations. Each year our programme, held in February as a highlight of the Pride Festival, gets more ambitious. This year we’re looking for support to broaden the festival’s reach and the types of events we hold. Your support can help us achieve this goal.
