Everyone Out Finding Kawa

Everyone Out Finding Kawa

This autumn Rachel Prier (aka “Kawa”) will be camouflaged, hiding from kids. Where in the world is the elusive Kawa? You can search for her very soon in the Wellington Botanic Garden and at Otari-Wilton’s Bush. She’ll be hard to discover, she’s pretty sneaky, but keep calm and you’ll find Kawa!

Everyone Out is running two exciting Events, one in March and one in April. The Events are adventure games, aimed at getting tamariki and their whanau out and about, enjoying Wellington’s beautiful natural environments. “Kawa” is a character they’ll be searching for, while working together with their team to find secret codes to unlock boxes hidden throughout the Gardens and Bush.

In 2016 Rachel Prier founded Everyone Out Limited as an outlet for her passion of educating our tamariki about our natural environment. Since then Rachel has run three Events, two at Otari-Wilton’s Bush and one at Wellington Botanic Garden. The Events were very successful, with numbers up to 200 attending, and positive feedback from parents and children alike. Rachel is currently working on the next series of Events at these same locations, with an aim of expanding to more locations in the future.

The first Event this year will be on the 11th of March and part of Wellington City Council's Parks Week. Parks Week, 10-18 March 2018, is an annual celebration of the role that parks play in keeping our communities and natural environment healthy.

Rachel Prier says ”I am excited to show our tamariki some of the amazing areas we have to explore in Wellington. And most importantly, to inspire the next generation to form a positive bond with our natural surroundings, so they will continue to care for our world as they grow up.”

The adventure course is designed so that everyone can take part and be challenged, from toddlers to teenagers. Be advised that teams may get wet! They will definitely get dirty! They are likely to learn something new, and they’ll absolutely have fun!

Media invitation

Join us at the Wellington Botanic Garden on Sunday 11 March 2018 from 2.00 pm to see the Event in action.

Scoop Review of Books: Martin Edmonds' The Expatriates

This book is an extension of, and tribute to, the life’s work of James McNeish. Without sacrificing any degree of authorial independence, the result is gracefully written, handsomely produced, and likely to propagate many further works of its kind. More>>

Joe Cederwall Review: WOMAD 2018 - Harmony of Difference (part 1)

A friend described WOMAD as his “favourite white middle class celebration of diversity.” There is certainly an echo of truth to this as the crowd is still largely white and middle class, but this WOMAD for me represented that a better world is possible ... More>>

Howard Davis Review: A Bigger Splash - Te Papa Celebrates Twenty Years

Considering the available resources, this is a decidedly hit-and-miss affair, mainly due to some highly questionable curatorial decisions. In their overweening wish to "push boundaries," Charlotte Davy and Megan Tamati-Quennell have made a number of serious miscalculations by ignoring a basic rule - keep it simple. More>>
