Shamanic Vision Quest with Dr John Broomfield and Dr Dawne Sanson

A wonderful opportunity for shamanic journeying with two experienced teachers; Suitable for all levels of experience, including complete beginners.

This residential retreat will provide knowledge about shamanic cultures from around the world and this will lay the foundation for our own journeying.

The wilderness locale of the beautiful Wangapeka Retreat Centre in the foothills of NZ’s Southern Alps, enhances the power of the practice and provides the perfect setting for the two-day solo fasting vision quest which is at the heart of the workshop.

For more info on the venue: https://wangapeka.org

'When shamans ‘journey,’ they are being transported not outwardly around the face of the earth, but inwardly by the pulse of rhythmic sound. Instead of moving their bodies by ordinary physical means, they move into an altered state of consciousness in which they experience realities outside our normal perception'. (Sandra Ingerman)

Cost: $760 (includes single accomodation, all meals and teaching)

For any questions about the retreat, please contact John on 03 547 1084 or Dawn on 027-289-3181

Our House

On the night of his 16th birthday, while trying to impress Sarah, the girl of his dreams, Joe Casey makes a decision that will change his life forever.

Our House follows the two paths that Joe's life could take after that fateful night; one path means a criminal record and social exclusion, while the other will lose him the girl that he loves. Over a period of seven years and two alternative lives Joe deals with the consequences of that night. Whilst one Joe fights to keep Sarah, the other is marrying her in a glitzy Vegas wedding and ultimately, while Good Joe fights to save his house on Casey Street, Bad Joe is determined to demolish it with tragic consequences. All this is watched over by Joe's deceased father, who pulls the two stories together.

Writer Tim Firth explores the themes of love, family values, growing up, responsibility and dealing with losing the people that shape us.

Firth commented "I'd always thought there was an irony that everyone remembered Madness as the nutty boys. But their songs were actually just witty and moving and about something. They felt like they were part of a musical already. I still don't think I wrote the book of Our House. I found it."

19 photographic portraits of NZ nuclear test veterans taken in their own homes around NZ, that took part in Operations Grapple, a nuclear testing programme in the Pacific in 1957-58.

Nelson Fringe Festival

Nelson Fringe Festival is back with a line-up of plays and workshops. We've also got a couple of try-out Scratch Nights for some of our region's best undiscovered performers.

We're using 2021 as a year to re-group, re-energise and use the Festival as a building block for future Festivals, by thinking a bit laterally, a bit sideways, and a bit backwards (by showcasing some recent top-performing shows). It’s part of the constant challenge of figuring what being a Fringe is all about.

Stay tuned for details on the programme to be released!

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.

Richmond Library: Good Crafternoon

Join us at Richmond Library for an hour and a half of crafting. It’s a great opportunity to finish a project, or start a new one, and spend some enjoyable time with other crafters.

Bring along your craft project – knitting, hand sewing, mending, crochet, drawing, scrap-booking, or whatever half-finished, almost-started project you like – and work on it with other crafters at the library.

It's free, but you need to bring all your own materials and craft supplies.

Bring your lunch, or grab something from the Library Café.

Everyone is welcome and booking is not required.

CHAINReaction: HANDSHAKES at the Refinery

HANDSHAKE Project, now its 10th year, is a New Zealand mentoring programme, and NJW is excited to bring this exhibition to Nelson.

The exhibition at Refinery ArtSpace, Nelson celebrates this milestone with 49 artists who directly and indirectly were associated with the project. They all make a HANDSHAKE by contributing to a continues necklace. Each link will be a highlight and celebrates connectivity and communication.

HANDSHAKE is a mentoring and exhibition project with a continuing progressive programme that over the years has benefited a great number of NZ emerging jewellery artists. It gave these artists extended creative energies and network opportunities.

HANDSHAKE can be described as an experimental bridge that connects emerging artists with professional practice. Mentors came out from all over the world with a helping hand for those asking for it. The HANDSHAKE exhibitions were at national and international locations; with a couple at highly respected spaces.

Its success can be described through its collective contribution and sharing nature.
HANDSHAKE project is funded by Creative New Zealand and managed by MAKERS 101. ​

Richmond Library: DocFest – Annie Liebovitz

Join us for a free documentary screening at Richmond Library.

This month’s documentary is Annie Liebovitz: Life Through a Lens.

Annie Leibovitz has produced some of the most iconic images of the last 30 years and is one of the world’s most influential photographers. She has shot the rich and famous, the profound and powerful, the exceptional and notorious.

Masterful at exposing her photographic subjects, Annie's own life has been private. However, in this film created by her younger sister Barbara Liebovitz, Annie bares her artistic process, personal journey and the delicate balancing of fame and family to the camera.

"ANNIE LEIBOVITZ: LIFE THROUGH A LENS does an excellent job of showing how this extraordinarily talented woman came to the forefront of modern photography." - Mike McGranaghan, Aisle Seat

To book your seat, phone 03 543 8500 or email library@tasman.govt.nz.

Forest & Bird AGM followed by talk by Konstanze & Jonathan about Lakes380 Project

The Nelson/Tasman Branch AGM will be at 7.30 followed by the Guest speakers at 8 pm. There will be no pot luck meal beforehand.
Konstanze Steiner and Jonathan Puddick will speak about Our Lakes’ Health: Past, Present, Future. Konstanze and Jonathan are scientists at the Cawthron Institute, where they work on the Lakes380 project. This nation-wide project, aims to collect environmental, social and cultural information about Aotearoa-NZ’s lakes from the past and the present in order to protect the health of our lakes in the future. Using water and surface sediment samples we can understand what is currently happening in a lake, while lake sediment cores are used to investigate the past, capturing up to 1,000 years of water quality history. Innovative DNA-based techniques to detect and evaluate the abundance of freshwater taonga species such as the freshwater mussel kakahi are also being applied to these samples. Konstanze and Jonathan will provide an overview of the project, examples of how they use paleolimnological techniques to reveal how lakes have changed over the past 1,000 years and their work evaluating kakahi populations in lakes around Aotearoa-NZ.

Richmond Library: Introduction to The Crusades

Jean Gorman is the well known author of the Lionheart Chronicles, historical novels set during the reign of King Richard the Lionheart - a time of crusades, devious international politics and warfare.

In this fascinating talk, Jean shares her knowledge of The Crusades.

“Was it an age of knights and chivalry? An age when self-serving, powerful and sociopathic men had free rein? Was this different from today? Why did King Richard the Lionheart command the respect and devotion of his men, whereas his brother, King John became the butt of stories like Robin Hood? Can we believe what we are told of these men? Probably not - deeds define the man”, says Jean.

If you are interested in history then this talk is for you.

It’s free and everyone is welcome.

Chamber Music NZ presents Nocturnes

“Oh, how I wish I could make those who see my work feel the splendours and terrors of the night! One ought to be able to make people hear the songs, the silences, and murmurings of the air. They should feel the infinite.” ― Jean-François Millet

As day gives way to night, pulling a blanket of stars across the vast black sky, it invites you to lean in and listen closely. As your senses are dimmed by the growing darkness, listen… can you hear it?

NOCTURNES is an evocative collection of night-songs for the piano, played by internationally celebrated concert pianist, chamber musician and educator Professor Jian Liu. Journey through a dreamscape of lilting lullabies and cradlesongs alongside night-music of mystery and mischief. Beloved nocturnes by Chopin and Liszt light the way for other gems in an intimate evening that celebrates the purity and power of solo piano.

Hear the songs, the silences, the murmurings. Feel the infinite.

Casual Conversations

"Every single person on the planet has a story. Take some time to listen before stereotyping people. The truth might surprise you."

Casual Conversations is a unique storytelling format where you can “book” a person for them to share their story with you on a one-to-one basis.

Hosted by Cultural Conversations at 222 Hardy Street, the idea is inspired by the Human library and Living library concepts.

“In all corners of the globe, storytelling is a longstanding tradition with significance that’s lost on no one. It’s vital to preserving culture. It speaks of moments of pride. It speaks of moments of injustice. It offers an opportunity to learn. Most importantly, it inspires us to create change for the future.”
– Craig Kielburger and Marc Kielburger

Social Unrest: Nelson Riot in 1843

A talk on what has been dismissed as 'social unrest' in the early settlement of Nelson. Was it in fact really workers standing up for their rights after promises made before departing England were not kept. Were shortages of food, decent housing and paid work the real issue? How did the workers experience of similar injustices in England agitate change to remedy their situation. Find what they did, and perhaps there is a legacy here today.

Perhaps a broad acknowledgement of everyone who has been affected by the progression of War and the search for Peace through history.

Little Women

Join Nelson Youth Theatre as this timeless, captivating story is brought to life in this glorious musical filled with personal discovery, heartache, hope and everlasting love. Produced on Broadway, Little Women – The Broadway Musical has been praised by critics for its ambition in adapting such a well-known story for the stage.

Based on Louisa May Alcott’s life, Little Women follows the adventures of sisters, Jo, Meg, Beth and Amy March. Jo is trying to sell her stories for publication, but the publishers are not interested – her friend, Professor Bhaer, tells her that she has to do better and write more from herself. Begrudgingly taking this advice, Jo weaves the story of herself and her sisters and their experience growing up in Civil War America.

Little Women embodies the complete theatrical experience, guaranteeing a night filled with laughter, tears and a lifting of the spirit. The powerful score soars with the sounds of personal discovery, heartache and hope – the sounds of a young America finding its voice.

Code-Switch

“Want a future that’ll make your family proud? What about success and happiness? You’ll find all this and more at Camp Mana.”

A new door opens for Hemi and Anna as they’re accepted into the prestigious ‘Camp Mana,’ a program designed to prepare promising school leavers to succeed in the ‘real’ world. The pair come from a low socio-economic area and are given the opportunity to defy the odds. But there’s always a catch – how much will they have to give up to succeed?

“Code-Switch” is a collaborative live cinema experience combining film, dance and live stage theatre that explores what happens to young people when dreams, values, and social contexts clash. Follow the illusions and disillusionment of two students whose lives are a little bit like all of ours: Hemi, the artistic and naive blank slate, and Anna, the ambitious and determined over-achiever. From choosing between passion and financial stability, to juggling the pressures of family and culture, the decisions they make will have consequences – whether they like it or not.

Proudly supported by Nelson City Creative Communities Scheme, Photogear, Theatre Royal Nelson and Aorere College Foundation.
