Kia ora koutou katoa (Greetings, hello to you all)

Welcome to Dunedin – UNESCO City of Literature and proud host of the Creative Cities Southern Hui 2017.

Located on the south east coast of New Zealand’s South Island, Dunedin is New Zealand’s first city. Named after its sister city, Dunedin is the Gaelic name for Edinburgh. It is one of New Zealand’s most important cultural and educational centres.

Dunedin is a place where creativity, writers, books and literature thrive. Dominated by a statue of Robbie Burns, the city acknowledges the importance of an egalitarian and vernacular literature within and for the community.
