Our Spring Issue is here — and it’s encouraging us to embrace change beyond just the seasons

An issue designed to encourage and ignite change, it’s in our freshly released spring magazine that you can expect to find some seriously inspirational content.

In our gastronomy section, we cut through the greenwashing and look at the most sustainable dishes being served in Auckland, alongside deep dive into the ways some of our hospitality entities, including SKYCITY and Viaduct Harbour are embracing the idea of sustainability in a very real, very tangible way.

Compelling profiles on some seriously game-changing New Zealander’s are featured to serve as an example of how to break the mould, including pieces on Lee Gibson, a Lead Footwear Designer at Nike, Dane Mitchell, whose work, Post Hoc, is currently showing at the Venice Biennale and Tom Gould, a talented photographer and filmmaker on the rise — alongside a raft of other people striving to effect change in their own ways, in their own industries.

Delve into our thought-provoking piece on Climate Change — which delivers a side of the argument that is rarely addressed — or our seven-page exploration of the landscape of philanthropy in New Zealand. This issue also highlights on conscious, ethical fashion and features an intriguing feature by Sophie Gilmour of Delicious Business, who speaks to the key things hospitality owner/operators should be considering when it comes to making their businesses successful.

And between the sleek photoshoot by Steven Chee and Jess Pecoraro, the new season trend pages in our fashion section and a deep dive into whether we’re paying too high a personal price for technological advancement, you can guarantee there is much to ruminate on.

So whether you’re looking to make some lifestyle changes in the lead up to summer, or are simply seeking a change of perspective, Denizen’s shiny new Spring Issue is what you should be reading right now.
