Classical World New Zealand - Massey University: "Classical World New Zealand demonstrates the modern world’s ongoing dialogue with ancient Greece, Rome and Egypt and highlights New Zealand’s contribution to this conversation. The culture of the classical world remains a rich vein of creativity tapped by countless living artists. Their art in turn helps us to connect to the ancient world.

Our project, based at Massey University, focuses on the distinctive contributions of New Zealand-based artists, actors, theatre directors, filmmakers, musicians, writers and scholars."

Our preferred form is  a few lines at most, with a link or an email contact for further information.

At a pinch we may self-host longer documents to link in the eNews but they must be submitted as pdf or word documents as attachments to emails. They need some processing so there may be a delay in their being used.

If you are running a conference we will usually run a link once only - and if you don't have a website for it yet, then tell us when you have.
