uPflash: it’s going to be Steampunk Saturday!

0

So much going on around Tauranga this weekend.  It will be amazing down at the Historic Village where the Incubator and Steampunk aficionados will be putting it all on show…don’t miss the sculpture in the Incubator gallery.  Steampunk Saturday tomorrow 8th September 2018!

I was prevailing upon the well-established good-nature of artist and gallery owner (with others) Nick Eggleston down at the Historic Village this afternoon as he put the final touches to his sculpture for the Incubator Steampunk exhibition.  It was simply amazing.   Have a look, but make sure you get on down there. 

The care and detailing on this work is amazing

You won’t believe what this is…Nick’s concept is almost psychological

You will find Nick and his colleagues at Imprint Gallery at the Historic Village   https://www.facebook.com/pages/category/Shopping—Retail/Imprint-Gallery-225270567978029/

Check out Nick’s work at             https://artnik.weebly.com/

New Zealand – Māori Language Week, te wiki o te reo Māori, is a government-sponsored initiative promoting the use of Māori language, one of the three official national languages of the country (Māori, English and New Zealand Sign Language). The week is part of the broader Māori language revival and raises public awareness for Māori language revitalization, learning and public usage.

Dates for the 2018 Māori Language Week are September 10-16 with the theme ‘Kia Kaha Te Reo Māori.’

September 14 is Māori Language Day, a reminder of the day 1972 when the petition for te reo Māori was suspended in the parliament.
