Another busy week this week!
The Auckland Arts Festival continues. Saturday night is White Night, which you should absolutely try and get along to. Travel by free bus and discover some arty gems tucked away in Auckland. Also on Saturday afternoon is the free family picnic which is part of the Dominion Road Stories. Check out my other picks here.
On Tuesday, Malcolm Middleton will be talking as a part of the Auckland Conversation series. He will be discussing Brisbane’s approach to heritage protection which, as a Queensland Government Architect, he knows a bit about. It’s at Aotea Centre, pertinently located across the road from the beautiful St James Theatre.
If you didn’t make it to the Pasifika Festival this weekend or you did and are now addicted to Pasific food and music, then head along to the ASB Polyfest. It runs from Wednesday to Saturday and will see over 9,000 students performing during the 4 days on 6 different cultural stages.
Youthtown is organising a series of events to keep the teens occupied. Youth in the Park is at Talbot Reserve in Glen Innes this friday from 4.30-8.30. There will be lots of activities: basketball, skating, horizontal bungee, laser skirmish to name but a few.
Lots of outdoor cinema is on this week too. Silo Park is showing Marley on Friday at 9.00pm. Whilst the Auckland Council’s Movies is Parks have Avatar on in Grey Lynn Park on Saturday and The Muppets on at Ranui Domain on Sunday. Both start at 8.00pm.
Sunday is St Patricks Day, which means two things. 1) If you are not planning on getting blotto yourself, avoid the city. But, 2) The annual parade will be going down Queen St from 11.00am and is always good fun.
Supporters of Mana and/or the Feed the Kids Policy initiative are being asked to register for the Mana AGM and Feed the Kids Symposium. It’s happening in Tokoroa from the 12th-14th of April.
In other exciting news, the theme for this year LATE series has been announced and it’s a goody! ‘Of Gods And Men’ will take inspiration from assorted gods for discussions on everything from ‘Science and Innovation’ (Hermes) to ‘Wine, Celebration and Ecstasy’ (Dionysus). It kicks off in May but I decided to mention it now because I’m SUPER EXCITED!
On that note, have a wonderful week![contact-form-7 404 "Not Found"]
