National Pacific Radio Trust Annual General Meeting

Invitation to Attend National Pacific Radio Trust Annual General Meeting

The Chairman of the National Pacific Radio Trust and Trustees invite the Pacific community to join us at our Annual General fono.

The National Pacific Radio Trust (NPRT) is responsible for maintaining the national Pacific Radio Network that operates Radio 531pi, Niu FM, our nine Pacific language programmes, and its online platforms. It exists to empower, encourage and nurture Pacific cultural identity and economic prosperity in New Zealand and to celebrate the Pacific spirit.

The role of the government appointed board is to provide governance and oversight to ensure this mission is met.

NPRT Chair Tiumalu Peter Fa’afiu says, it has been a busy time for the network and it is important for the Trust to continue to engage with Pacific communities across the country around what PMN has achieved over the last 12 months and looking ahead.

“We are delighted to share with you the progress and important milestones of our radio network over the 2016/17 financial year. Most importantly, the new Board would like to share some early thinking in regards to the future direction of the Network.”

Tiumalu adds, “We operate in a highly competitive environment. Like any other organisation we must adapt our content, programming, partnerships, and
information platforms to what our audience and customers need and want.”

When: Thursday 23rd November 2017
Where: Pacific Media Network, Level 4, Merial House, Osterley Way, Manukau City, Auckland
Time: 6:00 – 9.00pm
Refreshments will be served after the AGM

Howard Davis Review: From Free Press to Fancy Dress - Spielberg's The Post

Stephen Spielberg's The Post is an opportune newsroom drama in which a corrupt Republican president wages war against the "liberal media," as its plucky proprietor risks economic and legal ruin to bring the Pentagon Papers to public light. Its true protagonist is publisher Katharine Graham, a stringently diplomatic businesswoman, reluctantly compelled to take an overtly political stance in the interests of democracy and freedom of the press.

Howard Davis Review: The Black Dog of Empire - Joe Wright's Darkest Hour'

On the eve of England's contorted efforts to negotiate its ignominious retreat from Europe and the chaotic spectacle of the Tory party ratifying its undignified departure from a union originally designed to prevent another World War, there has been a renewed appetite for movies about 1940.

Howard Davis Review: Anger Begets Anger - Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri

For fans of what Ricky Gervais termed "number movies" (Seven Samurai, The Magnificent Seven, Ocean's 11, Se7en), Martin McDonagh's latest offering will be a welcome addition to the roster. The Irish playwright turned screenwriter and director has produced another quirky and darkly comic tragedy that evolves around the futility of anger and grief, retribution and revenge. More>>

Howard Davis: Sexting in George Dawe's Genevieve - Part I

Te Papa's permanent collection includes an enormous oil painting by the English artist George Dawe called Genevieve (from by a poem by S.T. Coleridge entitled 'Love') that was prominently featured in the 2013 exhibition Angels & Aristocrats. Compare the massive immensity of the bard's gorgeously gilded harp with the stubby metallic handle of the Dark Knight's falchion, both suggestively positioned at crotch-level. Dawe's enormous canvas invokes a whole history of blushing that pivots around a direct connection to sexual arousal. More>>

Ethnomusicology: Malian ‘Desert Blues’ Revolutionaries To Storm WOMAD

Malian band Tinariwen (playing WOMAD NZ in March 2018) are a true musical revolutionaries in every sense. Active since 1982, these nomadic Tuareg or ‘Kel Tamashek’ (speakers of Tamashek) electric guitar legends revolutionised a traditional style to give birth to a new genre often called ‘desert blues’. They also have a history rooted deeply in revolution and fighting for the rights of their nomadic Tamashek speaking culture and people. More>>

Gordon Campbell: Best New Music Of 2017

Any ‘best of list’ has to be an exercise in wishful thinking, given the splintering of everyone’s listening habits... But maybe… it could be time for the re-discovery of the lost art of listening to an entire album, all the way through. Just putting that idea out there. More>>
