SILO PARK announces summer 2012/13 schedule including
international musicians and award winning cinema

Silo Park is proud to announce the launch of its 2012/13 season, offering free entertainment at Waterfront Auckland’s Wynyard Quarter throughout summer.

From Friday 23 November, Silo Park will present a range of special cinematic, music and community events every Friday and Saturday. The SILO MARKETS kick off each weekend at 5:00pm on Friday’s, where visitors can grab dinner from an eclectic array of street food style stalls, browse a variety of pop-up clothing stores, and toast the end of the week at the SILO PARK BAR. SILO MARKETS also features weekly entertainment from local and international DJ’s.

Friday’s are also home to Auckland’s only regular open-air cinema, SILO CINEMA – a fantastic outdoor film experience, where movies of all genres are projected onto the iconic Silo 7 at 9pm. Furthermore, a short film curated by Show Me Shorts will play before each main feature. Silo Park offers the ultimate weekend outing for all ages, inviting families and friends to grab a bite, pull up a beanbag and enjoy the show. SILO CINEMA guests can also ‘Eat Popcorn for Charity’, with all of the profits from popcorn sales throughout the season going to a variety of charities, as chosen by the public.

The SILO MARKETS take place from 12pm–6pm every Saturday, offering a veritable mix of food stalls, vintage clothing, contemporary artists, street performers and more. Once a month, Silo Park plays host to some of New Zealand’s best musical talent at SILO SESSIONS – a series of free concerts, unique showcases and performances, curated by special guests, community groups and collectives creating.

Gordon Campbell:
On Gaza And Burning The Israeli Flag

One of the selling points in New Zealand’s campaign for a temporary seat on the Security Council is that we have a pluckily independent voice to offer on international conflicts.

This image is not entirely self-delusional. When we did occupy a temporary UN Security Council seat in the 1990s, New Zealand was forthright about the need for the international community to actively respond to the Rwanda genocide. On April 14, 1994, New Zealand, Nigeria and the Czech Republic were the only nations to call for a forceful UN intervention to halt the killings. It was a proud moment in the diplomatic record of the Bolger government.

What then, is the current National government doing with respect to the slaughter in Gaza? More>>
