Maitai Valley Road, Maitai 7010
Meet in the park domain and bring your creative talents
I have this vision of curating an event for the creatives at NMIT. I have been inspired by the Bacon and Lox Society. I would like to invite the art and design students and teachers from NMIT to join together at the Maitai River for a shared meal. Please comment ideas, ways to help, changes to make this event better, or any other suggestions!
This creative event will be held in the summer. It will be a gathering filled with food, drinks, music, art, creativity, and all homemade items.
For my event, I want to hold this gathering in the Maiati River.
The theme of the event will be Sustainability and Growth.
Everyone who is invited MUST create something for the event.
In order for this event to happen, I will need to find people to create…
- Table cloth
- Power (solar? generator? fire?)
- Servers/ Bussers
I am picturing this event somewhere on the river that is big enough to hold a large amount of people but at the same time be hidden; not a very popular spot that people tend to visit. Once each creative shows up, the event begins setting its self up. Every person must dress to the theme. Someone will document the process. Someone will make a film out of the process. Someone will take portraits of the process. The table and chairs will be placed in the river along with the entire event. There will be people to design the table and area. The music will be live. The artists will create their work in advance and set everything up in the river. The food will be homemade and prepared in the river, as well as, served and cleared in the river. There will be people who serve and clear the meals. People who make the drinks themselves. People who will create the plates, napkins, and utensils for the theme of the event. Everyone pitches in to set up and everyone pitches in taking down. Without everyone’s help/creativity/artwork this event couldn’t happen. Everyone has a purpose. This event is for the purpose of creativity. Get loose and find yourself in the process.
Please contact (021) 668 9976 or email at NMITRiverside@live.nmit.ac.nz to RSVP or for any inquiries regarding the event.
