Sally Blundell is a journalist and writer based in Christchurch. In this interview she discusses the aftermath of the 2011 Christchurch earthquake – the ‘environmental amnesia’ that historically afflicted the city, the post-disaster renewal project, and the importance of the Ngāi Tahu culture and history in the rebuilding project.
