The PumpHouse Theatre’s Creative Talks series aims to bring the community together with creatives to discover more about their process and what inspires them.  Each event explores what goes on behind the scenes to create their unique art. There is something for everyone with an interest in the arts and what inspires and drives creativity. 

The event is free with tea and coffee provided.  Booking a seat on The PumpHouse website is recommended due to the limited number of spaces available. 

Local environmentalist Tabitha Becroft is the first of six speakers taking part in the popular Creative Talk series at The PumpHouse Theatre in 2023.  Tabitha has a long association with Pupukemoana and The PumpHouse, and will talk about the upcoming Pupukemoana Environment Day

The 2023 line up also includes Malcolm Calder, producer of the popular Christmas Day performance of The End of The Golden Weather on Takapuna Beach, theatre makers Emma Bishop and Tatiana Hotere and local award-winning crime author Lizzie Harwood.

Back by popular demand, Devonport historian David Veart will present about his new book Hello Girls and Boys – a tour of the toys, the crazes and playtimes and preoccupations of big and little New Zealand kids over the generations.
