Second issue of the AEN Journal launched

November 29 2006

MEDIA RELEASE

Second issue of the AEN Journal launched

Issue 2 of the AEN Journal (journal.aen.org.nz) focuses on creativity, identity and ethnicity. A timely topic considering that national identity is one of three strategic policy goals of government. This new issue is infused with contributions from writers, poets, visual artists and film makers. We contextualise this with writing by leading academics, an architect and from creative organisations and the museum sector.

The AEN Journal includes poetry, prose and visual arts. It presents a diverse array of ideas, with twenty articles drawn from Aotearoa New Zealand, Australia, Hawaii and the UK. Just like our multicultural society, the contributors trace their own journeys back to many countries, including Tonga, the US, the Philippines, Korea, Cyprus and India.

The contributors all share a commitment to ensuring that the experiences of all of us who live here are reflected in our broader cultural spaces. This issue of the AEN Journal makes the point that creativity builds bridges and creates understanding within and between people. As Australian contributor, Julie Roberts puts it, creating “a space within which the dissenting voice, the subversive position, and the critique of the dominant paradigm can be challenged”.

Edited and designed by Wairua Consulting’s Andy Williamson and Ruth DeSouza, the AEN Journal aims to create a space for critical conversations that help us shape an exciting and ethnically diverse New Zealand. Wairua Consulting is proud to be a member of Te Ngira: The NZ Diversity Action Programme.

The AEN Journal is a free open-access journal and can be read online or download as individual articles or in full from journal.aen.org.nz.

Note: Prior to launch the website contains a summary of all contributors and abstracts of each article, please refer to journal.aen.org.nz for more information or contact:
