Let's Bring Fanfare Home to Christchurch

We are excited to announce that SCAPE Public Art has launched its Bring Fanfare HomePledgeMe Campaign to raise the targeted $50,000 needed to install Fanfare in Christchurch.

In return for contributing any amount between $10 and $5,000 to our PledgeMe Campaign, you will receive one of a great range of rewards, as our way of saying thank you for helping us bring Fanfare home to Christchurch. Rewards include postcards or posters signed by the artist, a specially designed Fanfare brooch and tickets to our VIP Fanfare Opening, to name a few.

Fanfare, by Neil Dawson, is a visionary sculpture with 360 separate “pinwheels” that spin freely in the wind and are spread over a massive 20 metre diameter. The final funds are needed to getFanfare installed in its new home at Chaney’s Corner beside the Northern Motorway.

SCAPE Public Art would like to offer you the opportunity to become an integral part of what will be an iconic sculptural legacy for Canterbury and Christchurch. When installed, Fanfare will be New Zealand’s largest work of public sculpture and we cannot wait to see it installed.

Help us raise the $50,000 needed by visiting our Bring Fanfare Home PledgeMe Campaign at http://bit.ly/BringFanfareHome. We greatly appreciate contributions of any size – every dollar gets us closer to our goal.
So, let’s Bring Fanfare Home!


Kind Regards,
Deborah McCormick and the SCAPE Public Art Team

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>>
