- Eye on the World' -
- Nokia Arts Awards -
- Asia Pacific 2001 -

"The theme for the Nokia Arts Awards 2001 is a celebration of innovation, artistic vision and the creative human spirit. Everyday, what we experience in the physical world is shaping our minds - the unique domain where we are free to make personal statements, amplify our thoughts and express our sentiments. Be it reality or fantasy, we encourage all youth to cast their eyes on the world and express their artistic sentiments by stating their piece." - Nigel Litchfield, Senior Vice President, Nokia Mobile Phones, Asia Pacific.

The annual Nokia Arts Awards competition offers young New Zealand artists a chance to study art in New York and Finland for a year. The Grand Prize of an international educational grant at Parsons School, New York, USA and University of Art and Design Helsinki (UIAH), Finland, both pre-eminent arts institutions, will be awarded to the top winner of the regional competition, along with cash prizes, Nokia products and a specially designed Nokia Arts Awards trophy.

Entry is open to all students aged 17-25 years. Entry forms are available by calling 0800 NOKIA ART (0800 665 422). Closing date for entries is 28 September 2001.

Sludge Report: Israel, Isolated in Durban Wheels Out The "H" Word

- It is as if the school bully, after being told off by the headmaster, but maintaining its right to smack a fellow pupil around is now telling the entire student body that they are the ones that are wrong, that they have always been prejudiced against them and that they are unjustly being criticised by their victim who has been “asking for it”. See... Sludge Report #105 – The Return Of The “H” Word [1]

Stateside: Oh, GE Free Island In The Sea

- Aotearoa (hell, if no-one knows where New Zealand is anyway, let's re-brand with something meaningful to our place on the planet) is an individual at a very basic level. Like Madagascar it separated from the large land masses it was once part of long enough ago for it to have unique flora and fauna. And it is far enough away from those large land masses to remain biologically insular if it chooses to do so. See... Stateside with Rosalea: Bubble Nation [1]

NZ First Annual Convention – Christ Trotter Speech

- To answer the question: ‘What tore NZ First apart?’ we must descend to the lower levels of New Zealand’s social architecture; to the place where all of the nation’s grubby little secrets are kept hidden away. It’s an answer that everybody knows, but nobody cares to discuss: NZ First was torn apart by racial hostility. See... New Zealanders First - Chris Trotter Speech [1]
