The free Christchurch Launch of the Special Renters United Ed. of Rat King Landlord by Murdoch Stephens will be held on Saturday the 6th of May at Toi Auaha Community Arts Centre at 3PM.
Join us for a celebration of all things Rat King Landlord!
We’re hosting an exhibition with large scale art prints of the illustrations from the book, giving away free copies and a reading from the author Murdoch Stephens.
We’ve managed to fit a whole novel, 16 beautiful illustrations, and a bunch of pro-renter propaganda into one free, 40 page, newsprint text so what’s the natural next step? Making it far bigger of course!
We’re reproducing the entire text into a full scale art exhibition where you can get up close and personal with some of our favourite rats and renters. You’ll also have the chance to purchase art prints of some of the illustrations, as well as some other art-related goodies and Murdoch Stephens’ other work, and of course, free copies of Rat King Landlord!
We’ll be supplying some nibbles and some drinks, and you’re welcome to BYO. We appreciate your support in ensuring that this event remains safe for all, and feel encouraged to take any covid precautions you feel necessary such as mask-wearing.
