Nelson & Marlborough Regional Championships

Nelson Yacht Club is hosting the Nelson and Marlborough Regional Championships for all classes of sailing dinghies. Sailors from Picton to Pohara are invited to attend and compete for the regional title in their class. A minimum of three boats will be required to constitute a 'class', and all other boats will race in an Open division on handicap.

For spectators, the most interesting times will be launching and landing, as the boats will generally race out in Tasman Bay. These times are all a little wind dependent, but we'd expect to see boats leaving around 12ish and then boats returning around 4ish.

Keep an eye on the Nelson Yacht Club Facebook & Instagram for updates.

It is also a volunteer opportunity, so if anyone would like to get on the water for the day and see the action up close, please get in touch.

The Nutcracker

The Nutcracker ballet is a magical, festive, family treat about a Christmas gathering and a young girl's dream about her gift of a nutcracker becoming a handsome young man. He takes her on a journey to the Kingdom of Sweets, where they are welcomed by the Sugar Plum Fairy.
Tchaikovsky's evocative music describes so beautifully this remarkable, heart-warming ballet.
The new and exciting point of difference with this production is that it will be a true community and collaborative affair - involving dance students from the region onstage with professional dancers, performers from some of our diverse cultural communities adding their colour and flavour, local artists designing and fabricating the sets and props, and little touches will make it a truly Top of the South and New Zealand presentation.

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.

4X4: Four Artists, Four Years

We are celebrating four years at Parker Gallery with an exhibition that showcases the talents of four local artists. This exhibition has been over a year in the making, and features brand new works by Caroline Bellamy, Jason Hale Tillman, Janet Perrior & Sue Scobie.

The show includes landscape paintings by Caroline Bellamy, characterised by her energetic, thick, bold brush marks. With his signature style and attention to detail, Jason Hale Tillman has continued to examine metal materials and contrasting finishes in his latest series of wall mounted sculptures. Mixed media artist, Janet Perrior, repurposes humble paper materials into intricate works of fine art, while ceramicist, Sue Scobie explores a monochromatic palette in her latest hand built ceramics.

Opening Preview: Thursday 12th November, 5.30-7.30pm. We would like to thank Giesen Wines and Nelson band, O & The Mo for their generous support of this event.

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.

IMAGE AND TEXT - Group Show

IMAGE AND TEXT
Group Show

The combination of Image and Text has been a powerful union throughout the history of art - one that has been used to define and subvert conventions throughout the ages. From the scribbles and scribing of pre-historic cave paintings or ancient Egyptian hieroglyphics, to Simone Martini’s lavish Annunciation or Barbara Kruger’s epic maxim’s, ‘text as image’ and ‘image as text’ leads a viewer into an experience of art that communicates through the hazy meld of the pictorial and the linguistic.

Does the image define the text? Or, does the text redefine the image? What do we ‘read’ first, the image or the text? What holds dominance?

In this group exhibition, eleven artists explore the combination of image and text within their work. From stop-motion animation to video, and painting to installation, this exhibition presents a powerful selection of contemporary art by artists from throughout New Zealand.

Exhibition Dates: Saturday 28 November – Saturday 23 December

Richmond Library: Documentary Festival – Fame High

Enjoy one, two, three or four of the fabulously free documentaries showing as part of our first ever documentary festival.

The final documentary we will be showing is Fame High.

From the nail-biting freshman auditions to the spectacular year-end performances, Fame High captures the in-class and at-home drama, competition, heartbreak, and triumph during one school year at the Los Angeles County High School for the Arts (LACHSA) where talented teenagers reach for their dreams of becoming actors, singers, dancers, and musicians.

Fame High was nominated for Best Documentary Feature at the Tribeca Film Festival.

"FAME HIGH, understands Alan Parker's vision (in the) excellent 1980 movie 'Fame' -- of rejection, hard work and self-discovery -- and depicts it with clear eyes. 'FAME HIGH' opens our hearts and entertains with truth!" - David DeWitt, The New York Times

"Fame may be fleeting, but the kids in FAME HIGH will stay with you." -Kenneth Turan, The Los Angeles Times

Phone Richmond Library 543 8500 to book your spot or talk to a library staff member.

Takaka Library: Book Launch - Wild At Heart

You are invited to the launch of Miriam Lancewood's new book Wild At Heart.

Miriam Lancewood's first book Woman in the Wilderness told how she and her husband, Peter, lived for six years in the wilderness of New Zealand, hunting and gathering, and roaming the mountains like nomads.

A year later they left New Zealand to explore other wild places. They walked 2000 km through the forests of Europe and along the coast of Turkey, mostly camping under trees and cooking by fire. They lived on the edge, embracing insecurity, and found the unexpected.

Sometimes it was pure bliss, sometimes it was terrifying. But when Miriam and Peter moved on to the Australian desert, they met with disaster.

Wild At Heart tells that story. It's about life and death, courage and the power of love.

Free. All welcome.

Cash book sales available.

A Choral Celebration

Nelson Civic Choir present a varied programme of music that celebrates choral singing and their 160th anniversary. The concert debuts the Nelson Youth Choir singing in their own right, and features the celebrated Italian lyric coloratura soprano Lilia Carpinelli.
With guest organist Paul Rosoman, and under the baton of their Music Director Nigel Weeks, the Nelson Civic Choir will perform firm favourites from great oratorios such as The Heavens Are Telling from Haydn’s Creation and the Hallelujah Chorus from Handel’s Messiah.
By way of contrast, the programme also includes David Childs' tender melodic love song, Song of Ruth, and Paraire Henare Tomoana’s iconic Māori love song, Pokarekare Ana. Pokarekare Ana has been specially arranged for the Nelson Civic Choir by New Zealand composer John Rimmer.
The Nelson Youth Choir offer a number of songs with different moods. These range from Daniel Elder’s 2011 Ballade to the Moon, to Billy Joel’s love ballad, And So It Goes.
Against a seasonal backdrop of the Nelson Cathedral Christmas Tree Festival, a selection of traditional carols completes a programme that offers a joyful choral celebration.

Women's New Moon Heart Sharing & Cacao Ceremony - Nelson

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.
