Looking forward to seeing many of you at the symposium next weekend.
I imagine most people will have organised transport by now, but if
anyone is still stuck on how to get to Whanganui from Auckland or
Wellington please post to the list and / or email symposium2010(a)aotearoadigitalarts.org.nz
, and we can see if it's possible to organise car shares. Likewise if
anyone will have room in a car please let us know.
And if anyone is driving up from Wellington on Saturday morning can
you please let me know? We have someone arriving at PN airport at 10am
on Sat who would love a ride from there to Whanganui in order to not
arrive too late.
In fact if anyone else will be driving past or near PN on the way on
sat or friday, if you think you will have room in the car, please let
me know, in case we can coordinate any other airport pickups....
In general, for anyone flying into PN, the best way to get to
Whanganui is by taking the Airport shuttle to the CBD, which costs
$10-12 to the Intercity Bus pick up point.
Then there are 3-4 buses from PN to Wh a day, and the price ranges
from $12 - 24 - here are the links for times/costs from Thursday -
If none of those times will work for you please let us know (symposium2010(a)aotearoadigitalarts.org.nz
) and we will try to help.
I remember a discussion on this list a while back about /creative/hacker/makerspaces so I thought you'd be interested in this. Tangleball is a new space that has opened up in Newton Auckland. We're having an opening BBQ on sunday 5 (with the space open from 10am that day). You can see/hear examples of screen printing, bronze casting, circuit bent music, video games, robots, a bicycle-powered smoothie machine and more.
Come by and check it out:
17 Edinburgh St, Newton
Just of K Rd
BBQ from 5pm (space is open all day from 10am)
