Wellington Rape Crisis provides free support and counseling for survivors of rape and sexual abuse, their families, friends and whanau. While they are thrilled at the results of recent fundraising, Wellington Rape Crisis is still not fully or sustainably funded and continues to rely on community donations and support in a difficult funding environment.

Though they have met their current budget shortfall thanks to a huge community response they are always in need of funds and support.

STAND UP For Wellington Rape Crisis is a comedic variety fundraiser featuring local comedians, improvisors, and musicians in an event to celebrate the work of Wellington Rape Crisis and to raise funds and awareness.

The generous performers who are giving their time and talent to this great cause include: Jim Stanton, Roni Saul, TJ McDonald, James Nokise, Jerome Chandrahasen, The Improv Divas, Wellington Sea Shanty Society, and Les Foiles de L’amour, Wellington's own Can-Can troupe!

“We have been overwhelmed by the community support in response to our recent funding crisis and are thrilled about STAND UP for Wellington Rape Crisis is being put on by volunteers to fundraise further for us and celebrate our 35th birthday.” - Natalie Gousmett, Agency Manager, Wellington Rape Crisis

STAND UP and join us at San Francisco Bathhouse for a fantastic cause - tickets are $20 from www.eventfinder.co.nz and the proceeds are going directly to Wellington Rape Crisis.

Our sincere thanks to sponsors Iko Iko, Slow Boat Records, The Body Shop Cuba St, Arty Bees, The Big Picture, Eventfinder, Brianne Kerr Publicity, San Francisco Bathhouse, and Cuba Creative.

Scoop Review Of Books: The Typewriter Factory

I finished reading Don’t Dream It’s Over not long after it came out last August. I even started writing a review, which took something of an ‘I’m sorry people, but it’s already over’ approach. I’ve been pretty negative about journalism as it’s practiced in the mainstream (or MSM, or corporate media or liberal media or whatever terminology you prefer) for quite some time (see for example Stop the Press), and I believe the current capitalist media model is destructive and can’t be reformed.

One of the most influential and celebrated contemporary Pop artists working in New Zealand, Dick Frizzell is mostly known for his appropriation of kitsch Kiwiana icons, which he often incorporates into cartoon-like paintings and lithographs. Not content with adhering to one particular style, he likes to adopt consciously unfashionable styles of painting, in a manner reminiscent of Roy Lichtenstein. More>>
