TESTIMONIALS:

The Going Global showcase opened up some really positive things for us. Thank you. It was crucial for us to have this platform to play to international ears & has really helped us since.” – Hollie Fullbrook - TINY RUINS – 2013 showcasing artist.

“…a fun and collaborative atmosphere.” – Jon McIldowie, Festival Republic (UK)

“…a real bonus for our local music community” – Murray Cammick, Rip It Up (NZ)

“Going Global was a top-notch experience, from both a professional and personal standpoint. The other delegates were absolutely spectacular, offering not just a substantive look into various facets of the industry, but also the opportunity to forge business relationships and friendships I'll carry throughout the rest of my life. The conference was extremely well-organized, right down to the evening showcases, which were a perfect representation of the wide range of exceptional talent coming out of this beautiful, energetic, and creative country. In fact, I'm now working with two artists who performed during last year's showcases - Mel Parsons and Tom Lark!” – Shawnté Salabert, VP Creative – Sugaroo! Music &

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.

Howard Davis Review: Dick Frizzell At The Solander Gallery

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>>

Scoop Review Of Books:
Looking Back

Writing a memoir that appeals to a broad readership is a difficult undertaking. As an experienced communicator, Lloyd Geering keeps the reader’s interest alive through ten chapters (or portholes) giving views of different aspects of his life in 20th-century New Zealand. More>>

Scoop Review Of Books: Purple (and Violet) Prose

This is the second recent conjoint publication by Reeve and Stapp; all to do with esoteric, arcane and obscure vocabulary – sesquipedalian, anyone – and so much more besides. Before I write further, I must stress that the book is an equal partnership between words and images and that one cannot thrive without the other. More>>
