Our speaker on Monday 14 October will be Frank Graveson.  Frank will talk about his adventures in Antarctica when he was in charge of dog teams doing geological investigations. A fascinating piece of history that might soon be lost.
In August we had the pleasure of talking at you about our upcoming art project: The Nomadic Art Gallery, which is being launched today and our goal is to raise NZ$9900.  This art gallery on wheels will hold multidisciplinary artistic events, shedding light on local artists and communities and pave the way for unconventional artistic exhibitions, workshops and cinematic screenings (official video).  Supporting our project is simple, transparent and reliable:
1.         Create an account and login on Boosted (fundraising platform)
2.         Go to our page on Boosted (here is the link)
3.         Press the donation button (indicate if you want to be anonymous) and follow the instructions
Once finished, this conceptual public artwork would be reflected upon and, ultimately, auctioned.  With the gathered funds, we intend to create a similar space in Belgium where Contemporary Pacific Art, which is hardly accessible to Europeans, is physically promoted.  By following our adventure on social media (FacebookInstagram and Youtube), you will be kept informed of the project and its progress.
Arthur Buerms and Eugénie Coche

Organised by the Rotary Club of Half Moon Bay, the Bangers to Bluff Car Rally is approximately 2500km travelling on ‘roads less travelled’, from 24 March to 4 April 2020.  The cars (bangers) need to have cost less than $2000 and will drive from Half Moon Bay in Auckland, through to Bluff and then back to Invercargill, where they will be auctioned off.  This event is now in its fifth year and the 12-day event raises funds for a number of charities.  For more information go to www.bangerstobluff.co.nz or email rod@cookes.net.nz
This Conference will have a carefully crafted programme that will inspire and entertain you and will be held in the University of Auckland’s Owen G Glenn Building, which has superb facilities and plentiful underground parking.  There will also be an exciting pre-Conference programme whether on the harbour, on the golf course, exploring Auckland or relaxing on Waiheke Island.
