12:43 Whole House Reuse project
We bring you up to date with the Whole House Reuse project, where an entire ex red-zoned Christchurch house was dismantled and its bits are now being distributed amongst artists around the country. You’ll hear from three of them about their plans: Nic Moon, Centuri Chan and David Haig.
1:31 Loading Docs
We follow up on the ultra-short documentary project, Loading Docs, as ten three-minute long documentaries are about to be released. Topics range from rest homes to Christchurch’s homeless, to cat killers.
1:53 Digitising Wild Life Sounds
Rosie Rowe has been working on the digitisation process of more than 300 reels of conservationist John Kendrick's audio tapes at Archives New Zealand. Transferring the audio onto a digital format is a process that has taken many months of playing back the audio reels in 'real time.' Links to the collection can be found by heading to the Archives New Zealand website and searching on Archway.

2:26 Professor Bruce Sheridan
Bruce Sheridan is an expat who now teaches at Columbia College in Chicago as well as making films – not bad for a Kiwi kid whose teachers told him an arts degree wouldn’t do him any good! Professor Sheridan is giving a talk, Human Creativity and the Centrality of Arts in 21st Century Education, on Monday 26 May at the University of Auckland.

Named after a Georgian painting, Landscape with Solitary Figure marks Shonagh Koea’s return to writing novels after a break of several years.

Landscape with Solitary Figure is published by Vintage.
