International Children's Art Exhibition

International Children's Art Exhibition To Open At NZ Childcare Association 40th Jubilee Conference, Wellington

The Boorai Children ' s International Art Exhibition will open at 6.30 pm on 10 July 2003, at the James Cook Grand Chancellor Hotel, Wellington. The exhibition aims to present the ' voice of the child ' to wide audiences and to provide a forum for educators and families to acknowledge and engage with the ideas, feelings and life experiences of young children.

This initiative is a project between Te Tari Puna Ora o Aotearoa/NZ Childcare Association and the Boorai Children ' s Art Gallery, located at Melbourne University Early Learning Centre.

The theme of the inaugural exhibition is CARE - Children Appreciating and Respecting the Environment. The CARE project has been developed to communicate young children's attitudes of care, curiosity and responsibility for the environment through their art and narrative. Art work produced by young New Zealand children in a local early childhood education centre will join that of children from Australia, China, USA and Singapore.

Rose Cole, Chief Executive, is delighted that the Childcare Association is able to host such a significant event. " We have been working towards the exhibition for the past year, as one of the highlights of our jubilee celebrations " .

The exhibition will remain on display throughout the Association ' s conference, and then will move to Capital E at the end of July.

Howard Davis Article: A Musical Axis - Brahms, Wagner, Sibelius

Brahms' warm and exquisitely subtle Symphony No. 3 in F major, Wagner's irrepressibly sentimental symphonic poem Siegfried Idyll, and Sibelius' chilling and immensely challenging Violin Concerto in D minor exemplify distinct stages of development in a tangled and convoluted series of skirmishes that came to define subsequent disputes about the nature of post-Romantic orchestral writing well into the following century.
