United for South-America: From Nelson with aroha

Indigenous communities already experience poor access to healthcare, lack of access to essential services, sanitation, and other key preventive measures, such as clean water, soap, disinfectant, etc.
Most local medical facilities, if there are any, are often under-equipped and under-staffed. Even when Indigenous peoples are able to access healthcare services, they can face stigma and discrimination.

During this time of dislocation and fear, we may find ourselves in a situation of stress and uncertainty. Fortunately for us, living in New Zealand, we are in a better position, that allows us to support each other and help those in need.

Nelson has incredibly rich ethnic diversity, with many Latin American immigrants and former refugees. This event aims to support the connection to those communities and cultures, through a small gesture to show we are with them even from far away.

We will all be united for South America - From Nelson with Aroha.

//Live Entertainment//
//Live Music //
//Latin food & drinks//

Funds will go towards indigenous groups affected by COVID-19 in Chile, Colombia & Brazil:

Slice of Life

Remember when Knight Rider was the highlight of your week and Star Wars was the highlight of your year? When TV screens were tiny and mobile phones were huge? Remember 70s disco, 80s make-up, 90s grunge and the millennium countdown?

Nelson Provincial Museum’s latest exhibition, Slice of Life, offers a nostalgic view on New Zealand over four decades, from the 1970s to the 2000s, as a window into the lives of the 1,000+ most studied people in the world.

Developed by the University of Otago Te Whare Wānanga o Otāgo and Toitū Otago Settlers Museum, the exhibition highlights the significance of the world renowned ‘Dunedin Study’. Featuring a carefully chosen collection of era-specific objects – toys, posters, furnishings, technology – and hands on interactives, visitors are invited to connect with the Study findings in a deeply personal way.

Slice of Life is a vivid demonstration of how New Zealand has changed, and a reminder of how much our people have changed in turn.

There are three categories of entries:
1. Child (ages 0-12)
2. Teen (ages 13-17)
3. Adult (ages 18+)

Drop your poem off at your local library (along with your name, age bracket and contact details) by 14 February, or email them to pania.walton@tasman.govt.nz.

You can either write your poems down, or take a photo of your poetic stack of book titles and send it to us.

It’s free to take part and anyone can enter.

Terms and conditions apply.

‘The Nature of our Nature’ Mikaela Marshall

An exhibition of works from contemporary artist Mikaela Marshall that examines our collectivity, our autonomy and our sense of 'I'.

'Within the inner of our collectivity there has become a desire and a desperation to preserve an autonomy. This autonomy requires the existence of another, it is entirely relational, and being disembodied, or dissociated of one’s self from the body indicates that one’s body is not only operating to comply with others, but is actually in the possession of others.

This mode of being with others in the world presupposes one’s capacity to maintain one’s reality, preserving an inner identity from outer sources, by eliminating direct access from without.

In gating our inner world’s we are losing our sense of self and we are caught in a perpetual cycle. There has become an ‘I’ who has not ceased to exist, but is without substance, is disembodied, an ‘I’ who lacks the quality of realness, who has no identity, and who has no ‘me’ to go with them.'

Klezmer Rebs

Klezmer Rebs are an 8 piece Wellington band that plays (mostly) klezmer music, an engaging style of world/folk music born out of the Yiddish/Jewish culture of eastern Europe in the 1800s and 1900s. Klezmer then went to America and in the early 1900s began to fuse with jazz and swing. There has been a worldwide revival of klezmer music since the 1980s.

Klezmer Rebs instrumentation includes guitar, mandolin, clarinet, violin, accordion, keyboards, trombone, helicon (like a tuba), string bass and vocals. Together the Klezmer Rebs capture the true klezmer spirit with songs of joy, sorrow and rebellion.
Klezmer Rebs have been shaking ‘tuchases’ (Yiddish for ‘bums’) in Wellington and places north and south since 2002..

The Rebs world music appeals to everyone. While many of songs are sung in Yiddish (that mostly-Germanic and very onomatopoeic language), they also perform partisan songs from Italy, Russian folk tunes, French chansons, Latin cowboy love songs, Argentine Yiddish Tangos and 1940s swing vocal songs. Their own quirky, politically charged multi-lingual originals are some of the most popular crowd tunes.

The Rebs will perform in the Fairfield Courtyard – expect a night full of story. songs and dance.

We are delighted to present an entire evening of Brahms chamber music – from the loving spirit of the E flat viola sonata, to the movement Brahms contributed as part of the collaborative “Frei Aber Einsam” (“free but lonely”) sonata, which Schumann organised as a tribute to violinist Joseph Joachim, who famously lived by that motto.

Brahms’ “Four Serious Songs” with biblical texts were completed on his last birthday as he anticipated the death of his lifelong friend Clara Schumann. This stunning evening concert will be rounded off with the sunny lyricism of the A major piano quartet with its glorious slow movement and hints of Hungarian colours.

Asta Rangu & Males Split Single Release Tour // Nelson

Dunedin indie rock bands Asta Rangu and Males are teaming up for a five date tour across Aotearoa in early February 2021, to celebrate the release of their split single “I DREAM / CLEAR LAKE”, released on the 29th of January 2021.

Asta Rangu, led by Dunedin musician Richard Ley-Hamilton, will headline the tour. 

Asta Rangu came to life with the release of the 2017 EP “Plasticine” (recorded by Tex Houston in Dunedin), an early release on Dunedin independent label trace/untrace records.

Recently returning from the UK, Ley-Hamilton has recruited long time collaborator Josh Nicholls (Koizilla/Space Bats Attack) on drums, trace/untrace co-founder Julie Dunn (Bathysphere, Mary Berry) on keys and treasured running mate Angus McBryde (The Broken Heartbreakers) on bass. With newfound energy and confidence, Asta Rangu have burst onto the scene with a debut run of sell out shows in support of Marlin’s Dreaming, Ha the Unclear and The Beths. 

Ley-Hamilton likewise leads Males, who charmed the indie scene in New Zealand from 2012 to 2015  with their “hyper-melodic, adrenaline infused, garage pop nuggets, with big hooks and bigger choruses.” (When You Motor Away, 2013)

Women's New Moon Heart Sharing & Cacao Ceremony - Golden Bay

Come fill your cup with love & the magic of pure ceremonial grade cacao.

During times of great change & uncertainty, we have always sought community and ceremony to instill a sense of peace, connection & healing within us. When we gather in sacred circle, especially together as women at the potent times of the New Moon it is extremely powerful.

Cacao is a plant medicine that creates a gentle but powerful natural elevation & expansion of heart-centred consciousness. Also known as Food of the Gods assisting in a deep yet gentle opening of the heart & mind to transform the physical, mental, emotional and energetic path of our individual spiritual journey. Often used for emotional purging, cacao lovingly supports the release of any fears & inhibitions so we may connect deeper with life and follow our true heart's calling.

A cacao ceremony gives a unique opportunity to connect within, open your heart and get clarity & guidance on answers you may be seeking. Bringing all these elements together allows us to feel safe, heard, witnessed & supported as we connect deeply to our hearts & our highest self so we can unleash our inner power, truth & divine magic.

SIMON HUNTER - Solo Exhibition

Simon Hunter is a Nelson based artist. His current practice uses a multi- media approach to create artwork that explores layers, traces and histories both in the physicality of the work and the ideas he engages with.

"Layers of ideas, images, feelings and memories etch themselves upon the soul and embed themselves within the spirit. Each succession seems to cover and hide those that went before, and yet, they are not gone-not one has been extinguished. They are asleep. Waiting to be revealed again".

Opening Preview: 19 February 5:30pm
