New members sought for Arts funding committee

The Creative Communities Assessment Committee allocates funding twice yearly to arts projects that fit their key funding criteria:

• Diversity – to support the diverse arts and cultural traditions of local communities, enriching and promoting their uniqueness and cultural diversity.

The Creative Communities Scheme funds come through a partnership between Council and Creative New Zealand.

We’re looking for people with one or more of the following attributes:
• A broad knowledge of the arts environment in Hutt City (this may be specific to a single art form or multi-art form)
• Strong links into one or more of the diverse communities in the city, including young people (under 18 years)
• An understanding of arts funding processes
• An understanding of arts participation and arts development.

This role is voluntary. It requires approximately one to two days’ preparation for each of the two yearly meetings, plus attendance at the meetings, which are held in the early evening.

Members of the committee and Council officers will elect new members who enhance the range of expertise and skill across the committee.

To apply, please send an email to pippa.sanderson@huttcity.govt.nz outlining the areas of expertise and skill that you could contribute to the committee. Please also attach a short CV.

Gordon Campbell:
On The Northland By-Election

Supposedly, Winston Peters’ victory in Northland has exposed the simmering dissatisfaction with the government that exists out in the provinces. Yet it remains to be seen whether this defeat will have much significance – and not simply because if and when Labour resumes business as usual in the Northland seat at the next election, Peters’ hold on it could simply evaporate.

On Saturday, National’s electorate vote declined by 7,000 votes, as the 9,000 majority it won last September turned into a 4,000 vote deficit – mainly because Labour supporters followed the nod and wink given by Labour leader Andrew Little, and voted tactically for Peters. In the process, Labour’s vote went down from nearly 9,000 votes six months ago, to only 1,315 on Saturday. More>>

Gordon Campbell: On A Funeral In Asia, The Northland By-Election, And News Priorities

On Pacific Spying

So New Zealand spied on its friends and allies in the Pacific – and has not only been passing on the results to the NSA, but has apparently passed on the details of the Pacific’s relations with Taiwan to our other best friends, the Chinese. On the side, the Key government has also been using the security services to gauge the chances of Trade Minister Tim Groser landing the top job at the WTO... More>>
