This Saturday, Joel is leading one of three alternative tours at the City Gallery in the witching hour of the weekend. The event is presented by NZ Festival's Culture Club. The other hosts are Pip Adam and Aaron Lister. Should be a fun time! Find out more in this podcast.
If you enjoy things like Litcrawl, enjoy alternative takes on art, and would like come along, you can book here.
Here are some photos from Sunday's performances, which we made in collaboration with Nature Through Arts Collective. We had a great time working with young people, exploring the natural world, and putting wetas on our faces (Fiona, you crazy person). Rain couldn't stop the gaggles of children from having a rollicking adventure all over the hills of Prince of Wale Park.
Big shoutout to Leda Farrow for resurrecting the moa. And to Jen McArthur for really getting inside her character.
Here's a bit about the project from their website:
A pilot project in partnership with the NZ National Commission for UNESCO is our latest venture. Picking up the creative challenge posed by Richard Louv – the world’s leading author on children’s disconnect from the natural world – the project aims to support young people to join with others in their neighbourhoods to create and lead movements to bring nature back to backyards.
