The public (and Once in a Lifetime editors) in conversation with Raf Manji (council), Lucy D’Aeth (public health specialist) Gerard Smyth (film maker), John McCrone (journalist), Rosemary Goodyear (senior housing analyst) and many more!

The team behind the book Once in a Lifetime: City-building after Disaster in Christchurch, the first substantial critique of the government’s recovery plan, invites the public to participate in a recovery clinic on Saturday July 25 in the lead up to the submissions process on the government’s draft Transitional Recovery Plan.

The book’s editors and authors encourage the public to join them at Brick Farm/Smash Palace, where they will hold a rolling conversation around a table from 12-6pm.

People are invited to bring their questions and thoughts about the current state of play in Christchurch and issues that need consideration in light of the government’s draft Transitional Recovery Plan.

The aim is to inspire some good chats and even some submissions (submissions on the draft plan close 30 July). Most of all, we wish to encourage a locally led recovery process.

As the book’s authors come from a range of backgrounds, from journalists and designers through to publicans and public health specialists, a range of perspectives and aspects of city-building can be covered. Individuals and authors will be there in shifts - we will list times and names.

Freerange Press will also be selling copies of Once in a Lifetime at a special price to encourage more people to read the important critiques, the range of national and international perspectives on post-disaster recovery and the alternative approaches to city-building.

So make sure you come down to Brick Farm on Saturday 25 July. Pull up a chair at the table, have a drink and a chat.
