City Council: The Improv Show

Welcome to the Noslen City Council! (It's Nelson spelled backwards... see what we did there?) It's election year in Noslen and the council office is heating up in this improvised soap opera set in a fictional local NZ government that has absolutely nothing in common with, say... Nelson. Be a fly on the wall as they make decisions and see the chaos unfold between the building consent team, the communications manager who is in charge of fielding all calls from the one landline, and the two sitting city councillors. What exactly does the External Relationships Logistics Coordination Manager do? Will the IT guy ever make with his band and get out of Noslen? Will the Mayor get re-elected? Even we don't know because it's all made up!

Also, one REAL candidate running in our real local elections will come and have a short debate with our fictional councillors each show.

People's Republic of Improv is Nelson's premier improv troupe. Previously the in-house company of Ghost Light, they have now explored other venues since Ghost Light has sadly closed. In September they will be performing in Studio One, Rutherford Mews.

Tickets $14 or $19 online, $20 at the door, EFTPOS available.

Disney’s High School Musical

Disney Channel’s smash hit movie musical comes to life on your stage! Troy, Gabriella and the students of East High must deal with issues of first love, friends and family while balancing their classes and extracurricular activities.

It’s the first day after winter break at East High. The Jocks, Brainiacs, Thespians and Skater Dudes find their cliques, recount their vacations and look forward to the new year. Basketball team captain and resident jock, Troy, discovers that the brainy Gabriella, a girl he met singing karaoke on his ski trip, has just enrolled at East High. They cause an upheaval when they decide to audition for the high school musical that is being led by Ms. Darbus. Although many students resent the threat posed to the “status quo,” Troy and Gabriella’s alliance might just open the door for others to shine as well.

Disney’s High School Musical is fun for the whole family, is based on the first High School Musical movie, and features the songs that made that movie a global hit sensation: “Start of Something New”, “Get’cha Head in the Game”, “What I’ve been Looking For”, “Stick to the Status Quo”, “Can’t Take My Eyes Off of You”, and “We’re All In This Together”.

Peter Pan is one of the most beloved and frequently performed family favourites of all time. This high-flying Tony Award-winning musical has been performed around the world and delighted audiences for 60 years.

Peter and his mischievous fairy sidekick, Tinkerbell, visit the nursery of the Darling children late one night and, with a sprinkle of pixie dust, begin a magical journey across the stars that none of them will ever forget. In the adventure of a lifetime, the travellers come face to face with a ticking crocodile, a fierce Indian tribe, a band of bungling pirates and, of course, the villainous Captain Hook.

Life as It Is! – a Family Friendly Community Retreat

Come up and join us for a warm community weekend of mindfulness for adults and children. We will explore some of the joys and challenges of walking a spiritual path in the midst of family life. Most of us are practitioners of meditation and Dharma in our “householder” lives. So let’s support each other to strengthen and share our Dharma practice and discoveries with things as they are in our lives.

This weekend provides space for family practice, adult practice as well as children-focused sessions. The rhythm for the weekend will include a morning gathering to practice together, family friendly forest walks, times for sharing and conversation, short periods of silent eating, and inclusive games.

The course is facilitated by a core group of experienced practitioners who have been connected with the Wangapeka Study and Retreat Centre (and each other) for many years.

Motueka Library: 1000 Books Before School

Reading aloud and talking to your kids are two of the best things you can do.

1000 Books Before School encourages families to spend quality time together, promotes pre-literacy and learning by having listened to 1000 or more books before the child starts school. Any child aged from birth to starting school can participate in this self-paced programme.

1000 Books Before School is a programme designed to encourage and support families to read aloud to their children from birth with the knowledge that reading aloud to children is a vital ingredient in building a child's foundation for successful learning.

1000 Books Before School is a collaboration between Tasman District Libraries and the Motueka Family Service Centre and is supported by the Motueka community.

Football Golf

Mixing two of the most popular games in the world, football and golf, this game is fun for all ages and brings families and friends together in a sporting situation where age doesn't matter.
Using a full-sized football, you play on a 9-hole course and take turns at kicking the ball from a tee to the green and then into a large hole marked with a flag. The length of the holes vary in distance and difficulty, making you think of how best to play each one.
We have a great clubhouse facility that also offers a cafe so we can cater for food and beverages to make your day complete.

Birthday parties a specialty!

Great fun and a challenge to all.
Perfect for birthday parties, staff team building days, corporate events, family gatherings, football club training or just plain good fun with your friends.

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

Kura Pounamu

An exhibition of more than 200 pounamu greenstone treasures presented by the Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa and Te Rūnanga o Ngāi Tahu, Kura Pounamu tells the story of this most precious of stones, its significance to Māori, and its enduring value from ancient times until today.

Outstanding examples of traditional toki (tools), hei tiki (pendants in human form), and mere (weapons) form the majority of the exhibition, many very rare, with some of the oldest thought to originate from early settlement times, around 700-800 years ago.

Contemporary works are also featured, created by celebrated artist Fayne Robinson who connects to local Te Tauihu iwi, as well as loaned treasures from Richard Nunns and Nelson College. Some of the taonga have a connection to local places such as Cobb River, D’Urville Island and Port Underwood.

Four large pounamu touchstones complete the collection – the largest of which, “Te Hurika”, weighs 170kg.

Found only in the South Island of New Zealand, Kura Pounamu: Our Treasured Stone reaffirms the ancient links pounamu has with Te Wai Pounamu (the South Island).

Motueka Library: I Spy … Reading Challenge!

I Spy … with my little eye … a fun reading challenge!

It’s that time of year, winter is drawing to a close, and now, just slightly, you’re starting to feel a little lacking in inspiration. You know what you need? What you need is a reading challenge!

This year, your library is inviting you to think about books differently, notice a little bit more than you usually would, get out your magnifying glass and play a game of I Spy …

We encourage you all - men, women, children, adults, and everyone in between - to grab an I Spy … participation card from Motueka, Murchison, Takaka or Richmond library and take on a special, sleuthing, detective challenge that will get you reading (and listening!) to books that might normally escape your notice.

Even better, there’s a mystery lucky-dip reward for everyone who completes their I Spy … participation card.

Don’t delay, grab your I Spy … participation card today!

Free. Everyone welcome to take part.

This month we’re focusing on the environment at Richmond Library. We’ve organised a range of informative talks which are designed to broaden your awareness of environmental issues.

In this talk, Jason Malham, Whio specialist from the Department of Conservation, talks about whio, New Zealand’s endemic blue duck.

Whio are a taonga (treasured) species that Māori have a strong cultural, spiritual, and historic connection with. Whio is also an iconic back-country species, and it features on the New Zealand $10 note.

The whio is only found in New Zealand, and is rarer than some species of kiwi. It is a nationally vulnerable species and faces a risk of becoming extinct.

Find out more about these fascinating birds at Richmond Library.

Mainland Tactix netball coach, Marianne Delaney-Hoshek

In business there are deadlines and big decisions that need to be made – often fast. There is a real synergy with what happens in the business world to the world of sport. In the elite netball world things are moving at speed every day. Athletes and coaches are being placed under the microscope on a daily basis by media and online forums.

How do we build resilience in ourselves/players/employees so that we can respond well under pressure? How do we motivate ourselves/players/staff to perform at their best at all times?

Marianne will discuss these as well as some of the key skills which have helped her turn around the Tactix - which sat at the bottom of the table for most of the 10 year history of the ANZ netball competition prior to her taking the reigns in 2017.

This is a Nelson Tasman Chamber of Commerce event, proudly sponsored by Intepeople. Cost includes a main meal.

Experience Permaculture & Yoga

Join the community at Anahata Yoga Retreat during this 16 day immersion, into a practical and experiential Permaculture journey woven into a daily rhythm of yogic lifestyle and practice.

‘Permaculture’ is a design system based on ecological principles. Its focus is on consciously designed landscapes that mimic the patterns and relationships found in nature.

There will be an opportunity to explore the twelve permaculture principles in an interactive way with different on-site projects and learning in an involved, hands-on way. There will be theory sessions to support and consolidate this active learning.

Permaculture relies on three core values: Earth care, people care and fair share. It is an abundant, ethical and practical method of developing the external ecosystem. Yoga is the inner ecology of living consciously, spiritually, and harmoniously in the world. Both concepts complement each other and blend together to develop a sustainable lifestyle within one’s inner self and the outer environment. Yoga, deep relaxation and meditation sessions will be woven into the daily schedule

Richmond Library: Seed Saving Workshop and Seed Swap

Learn how to save seeds and take part in a seed swap in this workshop with Ami from the Nelson Seed Library.

This is your chance to swap any surplus seeds, bulbs, tubers, cuttings and seed saving stories.
Ami is a passionate foodie, permaculture designer and learning facilitator of food growing. She has worked on establishing and running the Nelson Seed Library with a team of volunteers over the past 3 years at the Elma Turner Library.

The Nelson Seed Library at Elma Turner Library in Nelson is the first public seed library in the top of the South Island. They have over 200 varieties of seed in the collection, mostly made up of edibles but with a growing collection of ornamentals, natives and a few exotic species.

Nelson Seed Library is run by volunteers and works on a self service, trust based system. It is available for anyone and can be accessed any time Elma Turner Library is open. The idea is that people can take seeds away, grow them, take some for a harvest and save some for seed, which is then returned to the library to share with the rest of the community.

Find out how to save seeds and bring along any surplus seeds, bulbs, tubers, cuttings for a swap at Richmond Library.

Cacao Ceremony & Ritauls

Take some time out with Connie Causa & Cameron Anderson for a special evening of inspiration and remembering.

A Cacao Ceremony is an opportunity to explore one of the most sacred Super Foods of the world, known and used for centuries by many communities in central and south America for it´s power to open and heal the heart, plus a ton of other health benefits.

The context of a Ceremony is the creation of a safe and intentional space for exploration, healing, liberation and empowerment of the self, this is what we call sacred space, invoking subtle energies to work with us, such as guidance from all directions, elements, plant teachers and any spiritual teachers that the attendee might want to work with.

Through guided meditation, the power of intention and the ceremony itself, we can enter into a personal and collective space in which we can transcend many of our limited thoughts and beliefs so we can remember our essence and its true purpose.

During this Ceremony we will share some of the foundations of the Andean wisdom, using the art of story telling to continue to pass this authentic oral tradition that can have a very positive impact in the way we are living and relating with the all.
