Tickets have gone on sale for artistic extravaganza CreationFest, on display in Rotorua next month for five spectacular shows, with audiences able to join in the revelries as well.

CreationFest, which builds on the former Wearable Creationz event, includes film and live performance categories as well as the much-loved wearable arts, with locals and visitors able to feast their senses at this much-heralded event that showcases the best of Rotorua’s creative talent.

CreationFest comprises five dramatic, entertaining performances starting on July 15 at the Blue Baths. Matinees and evening shows are available, with selected shows including a Mad Hatters’ Tea Party and Creative Hat Competition, and a cocktail hour.

The former Wearable Creationz event has been revitalised to further encourage interest in art, design and innovation, and foster young, up-and-coming talent.

“We’re excited about bringing wearable arts back to Rotorua after a year’s hiatus,” says CreationFest event co-ordinator and Blue Baths managing director Jo Romanes.

“We have set about to create an innovative, dynamic and highly entertaining show which will have room to evolve and develop over time. It’s going to be a fantastic community event with some new energy and thinking, building on the Wearable Creationz legacy.

“We also want audience members to get involved as well, with some themed shows. You can create a hat and take a seat at the Mad Hatters’ Tea Party, mould a mask that could see you win prizes of your own, or simply dress up in all your finery for a fantastic night out with friends or social clubs including dinner and a show.”

Mrs Romanes says audiences can expect to see wearable art featuring unimaginable types of moving parts, shapes, materials and interactive tid-bits, along with visual feasts on the small screen presenting favourite flavours of Rotorua, and wonderful arrays of artistic movement by talented local performers.

House of Travel supreme prizes up for grabs by entrants include trips to New York and Melbourne along with spending money, plus much more in the prize pool.

Don’t miss your chance to experience a slice of the creative pie. CreationFest is on over five shows from 15 to 19 July. Tickets and more information on the shows are available at www.creationfest.co.nz.

Gordon Campbell: On The Tokenism Of New Zealand's Role Against Islamic State

To date, the Opposition has continued to occupy itself with the marginalia of the issue. E.g. whether Key did or didn’t know whether Barack Obama would be present at the US briefing last week on IS, or whether New Zealand’s military involvement is or isn’t already a fait accompli.

It might be better to tackle the issue, head on. Our contribution against IS will be to send SAS forces to train the Iraqis? That’s like offering trainers to General Custer just as the 7th cavalry reached the Little Big Horn.
