Lunch on Wednesday 27 November saw presentations from Gradon Diprose (recently arrived from Wellington to join us), Heather Hayward and Tessa Peach (Makeshift), Audrey Baldwin (The Social) and Richard Bartlett (Loomio). Here are Heather and Tessa discussing their work.
Afterwards Phil Dadson led everyone in a practise of his TEZA sonic cycle composition.
The afternoon was notable for the raising of Te Ao Marama (now clad) with the help of a crane (provided generously for free by Elevate).
Proceedings were watched by quite a crowd including Labour candidate Poto and Audrey from the Community Garden.
Here is some video of the raising.
Phil Dadson headed out on some solo vacant space aural performances
And Tim J Veling, David Cook and their group of Canterbury students continued the mammoth effort of installing their collaborative work with Freeville School Students in a vacant space at the bottom of the mall.
A highlight of the evening discussion on What Are You Worth? was Ash Holwell’s contribution of a red zone foraged salad and flowers, a parting gift as he left the zone.
After dark things got busy with the light works with the first testing of Te Urutahi and Kiwi Henare’s AIO down by the pier, with a few friendly locals joining in. Images to follow, but it was magical onsite to come out of the discussion and see three lights piercing the cloud cover above.
Back on site Kura Puke and Stuart Foster’s Hinatore got a second night development on a wall. One simple word best describes it, as Andrew Paul Wood comments in our critical responses: ‘magical’.
