UPDATE: Due to the current Red Light setting and the presence of the Omicron, the Southern Lakes Arts Festival Trust has decided to cancel Aspiring Conversations 2022. 

We know this is disappointing for many of you. We truly appreciate how passionate our community is for this event, and we acknowledge the support we have received in getting us this close.  

Our priority is to protect the health and well-being of our audience, our speakers, our wider Wanaka community, and our staff
and volunteers. 

We hope to reschedule much of the 2022 Aspiring Conversations programme into next year’s Festival of Colour.

Thank you for your understanding, and we look forward to seeing you in 2023.
