Bookings are now open for the 2017 Aotearoa New Zealand Animal Rights Conference. It is being called ‘AR17’ this year. The following is from the organisers…

From their Facebook page:

“The Animal Rights Conference 2017 will be centred around the theme ‘thinking big’ so that we can make the most change for animals. This is about working collaboratively within our movement and campaigning in a smarter, more effective way to make bigger change for animals, about the position of the animal rights movement in the wider struggle for social justice, and about creating broad social change. The conference format will consist of keynote speakers, workshops, group caucusing and plenty of social time for networking.’
