Refugee Support Volunteers – July Training

As a Red Cross Refugee Support Volunteer, you will be a key participant in the successful resettlement of former refugees. This is a terrific opportunity for you to work in a team, have fun, learn about diverse cultures and gain the satisfaction of doing something worthwhile!

Red Cross is the lead agency in the resettlement of refugees in New Zealand. This volunteering opportunity is based in Nelson. Refugee support volunteers complete a comprehensive training course and are placed in teams to work with newly arrived refugee families or individuals for their first 3-6 months in New Zealand.

Training is provided, the next course begins on the 2oth of July with more dates later in the year.

Volunteers are supported by staff throughout their placement and assist with tasks which include: Setting up homes; linking with Work & Income, schools, ESOL providers, and local GPs; orientating to the local community; providing on-going support (hospital appointments, mail, Work & Income appointments, social visits); and alerting our professional staff to needs or issues.

Gameshow of Thrones

Are you missing Game of Thrones? Never seen it? GREAT! TV's most epic story has come to a close on our small screens but a similar world is available for your pleasure every Friday in July at the Refinery ArtSpace. The People's Republic of Improv (Wynasty, Downton Uppity and Nelsablanca) is back to make you laugh but this time with the Gameshow of Thrones! With Westeros-like houses all based in areas of Nelson, come meet House Boulder, House Monaco and the Woodlings and you choose who sits on the throne and... who dies. Betrayal, strategy, magic and a host of complicated characters await for you, and to prove that it's all made up on the spot... the storyline will be chosen through the audience selecting random balls from a Bingo rotary set. It's a game show! Classy.
Did you watch all 8 years of Game of Thrones just to be shocked and disappointed at its ending? Don't worry, our story will only indulge you for 4 weeks and will hopefully have a better ending. *A better ending is not necessarily guaranteed.
The saga continues each week with a recap at the start of each episode.
*Note: coarse language, references to sex, death and dragons may appear in episodes. Proceed with caution.

The Body Snatchers - A fairy Tale?

This is an art installation by Toy Murchie and weaving by Bronwynn Billens.

The installation tells a story of understanding and co-operation.
It explores the account of some Norwegian flax traders that drowned at the Motupipi Inlet almost 200 years ago.
Many years after this terrible event two survivors from the trading ship came back to Golden Bay Mohua and tried to find the place their comrades had been buried.
They couldn’t find them.
It was as if the little people, fairy folk, ngā patupairarehe, de huldrefolk had taken them…
History is but stories. Stories with evidence

Respiro is a newly formed wind quintet comprised of friends who play together in the Nelson Symphony Orchestra. Respiro (Italian for breath) is the foundation of life and of every note we play on our instruments – without breath we could not shape our phrases.

Wind quintets celebrate the distinctive sound of each instrument (flute, oboe, clarinet, bassoon and french horn) and many composers have enjoyed writing for the unique character of each instrument and the challenge of blending their sounds together.
Melodies are shared, partnered and move in a continuous stream of breath throughout these musical works.

Featuring works for wind quintet by Agay, Françaix, Farkas, Arnold and Debussy.

Respiro members are:
Tersha Coppell (flute)
Lucy Davies (oboe)

Multicultural Nelson Tasman Fundraising Movie Day

" You know not your future until you know your past. Our dream has a purpose and our dream has a history."

In the 1980s, Bougainville experienced the darkest time in history. A 10-year Civil War that saw 20,000 people dead and 14 failed peace agreements. That’s when the NZ army stepped in with a radical new plan, armed with guitars, waiata, and wāhine instead of guns.

We are following the riveting journey of the peacekeepers as they endeavored to use Music and Aroha to end the worst civil war in the Pacific’s history.

Doors open at 6pm; movie starts at 7pm

Condemned by the media, the peacekeeping mission pushed forward using only music, Māori culture and aroha to help end the worst civil war in the Pacific’s history. A must-see.

Door opens at 6pm. Tamariki Toa will perform their Kapa Haka at 7pm. Part of the funds we raise goes towards sending them to the National Competition in November. Then, enjoy this GOLD award-winning documentary. Afterwards, please stay and sing together with our special and honoured guests from Nelson, Candy & John, who wrote two original songs in the film.

It is a fundraising evening for Multicultural Nelson Tasman. We appreciate your support to the cultural diversity in our region.

Please bring your family, friends to this fundraising movie night, meet neighbours, old and new friends and share a wonderful night.

Tommy Pickett

Tommy Pickett’s songwriting is up-tempo and folky, with a heartbeat.
He has a unique and engaging style, displaying a social conscience and lyrical sense which draw the listener in.

“If a cluster of Paul Simon songs collided in outer space with a pile of Neil Young songs, then the whole flaming inferno was hosed down by a Leonard Cohen fire-truck, and the pieces were swept up, after hours by Jack Johnson, whistling a Paul Kelly song … Tommy Pickett would probably be to blame for the whole mess.”

Meremere

Performed by critically acclaimed dancer and performer, Rodney Bell (Ngāti Maniapoto), Meremere merges spoken word, music, dance and multimedia design to tell its story.

‘This autobiographical, multi-disciplinary and life-affirming survival story drew the cheering opening night audience to its feet.’ – Dominion Post, June 23, 2018

‘Meremere is a complex work of art where design, AV and lighting play as significant a role as story-telling, music and dance.’ – NZ Herald, October 2016

This is Rodney’s story – from a childhood spent in Te Kuititanga to an international career and living rough on the streets of San Francisco. Meremere explores the human response to the ebbs and flows of fortune, the transformative journey to inner strength and peace, and the immutable call of home.

Uplifting, surprising, intimate and incredibly engaging – this powerful performance features live music from the exceptional Eden Mulholland as well a mesmerising multimedia collaboration from Malia Johnston and Movement of the Human.

NCMA’s Lunchtime Series: Beethoven Piano Trio “Archduke”

Archduke Piano Trio no 7 in B -flat opus 97

“The Archduke” Piano Trio; the last and greatest of Beethoven’s seven piano trios was dedicated to his friend and the most generous of his patrons the Archduke Rudolf of Austria. The Archduke was the instigator of a generous annual allowance to free Beethoven from financial pressures, for the rest of his life, on condition that he lived in Vienna. When the other donors dropped out (one became bankrupt and fled from Vienna, one died after falling off his horse) the Archduke unhesitatingly made up the deficit. This may have some bearing on the open hearted warmth and beauty which permeate the whole work.

Proudly supported by Nelson Pine Industries
