Otago Museum

Join Scarfie Flats of Dunedin authors, Sarah Gallagher and Dr Ian Chapman, for an entertaining and illustrated conversation. Up for discussion are some of the more meaty themes that emerged from researching and writing the book.

Find out about the role of popular culture in this long-lived tradition, and the place of play, humour, and creativity in flat naming. Discover how our city’s character homes and residential campuses have contributed to this practice.

In support of the Dare to be Wise exhibition, you will also learn how Sarah’s Dunedin Flat Names Project came about, and what inspired Ian’s interest in named flats, both of which led to the wonderful book, Scarfie Flats of Dunedin.
