Travcom invites you to an illustrated talk on: "An unstable world
— and what it means for travel writers"
(NOTE: non-members $20 - must pay on booking for event - see below RSVP by 25th October)
Join well-known writer and photographer Bob Maysmor. Bob has certainly visited some exotic places — Syria, Yemen, Saudi Arabia, Mongolia, Angola, North Korea, Georgia, Antarctica……
From this wealth of experience, he will explore
• how countries move from stability into chaos and vice versa
• how it opens and closes doors for travel
• how it offers and takes away opportunities for travel writers
Bob has worked in the museum profession for nearly thirty years — Dowse Art Museum, Hutt City, and now Pataka Museum, Porirua. He has been a multiple finalist in the Cathay Pacific Travel Media Awards. In 2006 Bob won the Best Overseas Photo category with his image of a scene in Irkutsk in Siberia.
As in all our events, his talk will be followed by an open Q&A session.
Cost: Non-members $20; Travcom members $10, includes a welcome drink and nibbles.
Time: 6pm, Tuesday 30 October 2012
Place: Senna Room, Ground floor, Museum Hotel, 90 Cable Street, Wellington
