‘Common Values’, an ANZAC photography exhibition

Wellington, New Zealand, 17 April 2014

Between Australia and New Zealand there is no greater unifying force than ANZAC Day.

In the lead up to ANZAC Day 2014, the Australian High Commission in Wellington will open its doors to host ‘Common Values’, an ANZAC photography exhibition.

The set of 22 photographs from the Australian War Memorial capture a group of Australian and New Zealand soldiers in Gallipoli during the World War 1 campaign.

“ANZAC Day is a significant time in our joint calendars, as both nations stop to remember those who have gone before us”, said the Australian High Commissioner to New Zealand, Mr Michael Potts.

“ANZAC Day is the ultimate expression of the trans-Tasman bond. We look forward to marking this time with our New Zealand colleagues and members of the public.”

The free exhibition will be open to the public from Friday 18 April to Sunday 27 April between 10:00am and 2:00pm daily.

“Following the exhibition in Wellington, the images will travel New Zealand, touring a number of secondary schools across both the North and South Islands”, said Mr Potts.

Dates: Friday 18 April to Sunday 27 April 2014

Scoop Review Of Books: No Longer An Island

Simon Nathan reviews 'Zealandia: Our Continent Revealed': The idea that New Zealand is part of a large submerged continent is not new... There was renewed interest in the extent of offshore New Zealand from the 1970s onwards with the start of offshore drilling for oil and gas, and this was given impetus by a UN agreement which allowed countries to claim an Extended Continental Shelf (ECS).

Gordon Campbell: Classics - Tales From Moominvalley
Can’t speak for the reading end of it but the Moomins ( or maybe the story about Margaret Wise Brown) were the most enjoyable subject to think about and write about during these whole first 50 issues of Werewolf. For that reason – and because the Moomins always reward re-reading – I’ve decided to reprint it. The only added element is a link to an interesting hour long documentary about Tove Jansson. More>>
