The centrepoint for creatives to platform their experiences, stories, and narratives both through the online and offline space. Consisting of three creatives - Thabi Sibanda (he/him), Alice Brown (she/her) and Kii Small (he/him), Coalesce produces media in various mediums, focused on Aotearoa.
A podcast that exists to make impactful academic research more accessible, and understandable for you. We find PhD theses that were published in Aotearoa New Zealand in the last five years, do the heavy-duty reading, meet with the authors, have a sit-down interview, and condense their work into a more easily consumable format- short, succinct podcast episodes.
