Arts Week calendar bursting at the seams

With over 20 events listed on the Student City Arts Week calendar it looks like Palmy is going to be overflowing with artistic and cultural spirit for the duration of the 6 day programme from 18-23 September.

A fascinating blend of student and established artists will be given the chance to shine with exhibitions, performances, workshops and events happening all over the city.

Highlights of the week include a photographic scavenger hunt, a fashion show featuring original designs by local students, a Black & White formal ball on Friday and a concert by the stunning Shapeshifter at the Massey Events Centre on Saturday. On top of that people can learn the art of fire spinning in their lunch hour on Wednesday from the Student City Fire Spinners, or catch a movie from Cuba as part of the 4th Latin American Film Festival and they still won’t have sampled half of the events taking place.

Event organisers are delighted with the programme. “It’s going to be such an amazing week, this is a chance for everybody to get a glimpse at just some of the hundreds of activities that are taking place in this city all the time,” says Kevin Delaney, Student City Coordinator. “We are also delighted that Te Manawa has been so supportive of the event and is hosting a play, the Arts Week Debate and the official launch party.”

But at the heart of the week are the students. “So many of the events are student-led and run. The clubs work so hard all year round so it’s great to see them confident enough to take on something like this,” says Eimear Clowry, Massey University Sports and Activities Coordinator.
