Updated: Oct 17, 2021

The Waitaki Whitestone Geopark presents:


A Marriage of Science & Art


An artist with a vivid imagination looks through a scientist's lens at the earth. He meets deep time and the wondrous complexity of evolution. And it all leads to penguins!


A presentation by Marcus Richards and Manu Berry

Marcus Richards is a paleontologist at the University of Otago with a passion for science communication. When he and artist Manu Berry met they realised that they shared a fascination for the history of life and a desire to share their awe with others. Marcus conveyed his passion for studying the evolutionary history of penguins, a story closely tied to New Zealand’s fossil record.


This event is part of the Waitaki Arts Festival.


6 - 7pm Thursday 21 October. Please note that the event will be at the Ōamaru Opera House.
