Funky new mural to adorn Tupu Library

Staff from Manukau City Council’s Tupu Dawson Road Youth Library and the team from Disrupt Gallery in Auckland are working together to create a funky contemporary mural to adorn the back wall of the library.

Thanks to generous funding provided by the East Tamaki Community Charitable Trust, the local community can watch international graffiti artist Askew and his crew paint their latest work of art live, at a community celebration on Saturday, December 16.

Locals can also enjoy food, fun activities and entertainment provided by 274 Youth Core at the Ferguson Oaks Reserve adjacent to the library.

Community Librarian at Tupu Library Pip Henderson is excited about the new mural:

“We are all looking forward to watching our new mural go up. Not only will it add a touch of vibrancy to the back of the library and the reserve, but we hope it will also be something our young community will be proud to call their own.

“I invite local residents to come along and join the celebration”.

The completed mural will be coated with a special sealant to protect it from tagging.

Gordon Campbell: On The New Government’s Policies Of Yesteryear

Winston Peters is routinely described as the kingmaker who decides whether the centre right or the centre-left has a turn at running this country.

Neither Ardern nor Robertson for example, really wanted a capital gains tax, for fear of Labour copping the “tax and spend“ label they ended up being saddled with anyway. Usefully though, they could tell the party faithful it was wicked old Winston who killed the CGT... More

Green Party: Petition To Save Oil & Gas Ban

“The new Government’s plan to expand oil and gas exploration is as dangerous as it is unscientific. Whatever you think about the new government, there is simply no mandate to trash the climate. We need to come together to stop them,” says James Shaw... More

PSA: MFAT Must Reverse Decision To Remove Te Reo
