Fwd for Carol Brown :)
Pā Collective, in association with Auckland Arts Festival, present a live
art event at the crossroads of time.
We invite you to join us at the Pah Homestead, TSB Wallace Arts Centre, 72
Hillsborough Road, Hillsborough, Auckland for our premier season of PAH.
Working collaboratively, we have created a truly inter-disciplinary event.
Live performance, music, painting, and photography come together through a
choreography of relations, between people, land and place.
Exploring hidden histories and revealing forgotten secrets, PAH will take
you on a journey, inside and outside one of New Zealand's largest colonial
heritage houses and through the grounds of Monte Cecilia Park, formerly
known as Whataroa Pā.
An original score, composed by Arts Foundation Laureate Gillian Whitehead,
is played live by Katherine Hebley, Andrew Uren and Luca Manghi and
animated by five exceptional performers - Kelly Nash, Nancy Wijohn, Emilia
Rubio, Zahra Killeen-Chance and Haanz Fa'avae Jackson - directed by Carol
Brown. The work moves through an installation of paintings specially
created for PAH by Star Gossage with curatorial assistance by Grant Hall.
Design is by Sean Coyle and dramaturgy is by Fiona Graham.
Solomon Mortimer’s photographs, developed in collaboration with the Monte
Cecilia Housing Trust, of people whose lives have been affected by the
current Auckland housing crisis completes the installation.
PAH comes alive for six evenings only as part of Auckland Arts Festival
Close Encounters, 10-15th March.
The exhibition and sound installation (designed by Russell Scoones) will
continue at the Pah Homestead until 19th April.
White Night Event: Sat 14 March 8-10pm including artist talk.
Performance Times: Tues 10, Thurs 12 & Fri 13 March 7.00pm; Wed 11 March
6.00pm; Sat 14 & Sun 15 March 5.00pm. Tickets are limited so please book in

Dear ADA people,
I'd like to inform you that the deadline for submitting works to the
virtual exhibition "HOT WATER Water, Peace & War" has been extended to
the 14 March 2015.
~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~
Artists, scientists, activists, teachers, youth are invited to upload
videos, digital postcards, poems or texts on the theme of ³HOT WATER²:
climate change, environmental decline, rights violations, volatile
politics and conflict about water.
Please consider contributing and share far and wide
Cheers from rainy Brisbane (under the influence of Cyclone Marcia)
Waterwheel, Make and Share about Water
The English expression 'To be in HOT WATER' means to be in trouble.
Currently, climate change, environmental decline, rights violations,
volatile politics and conflict all suggest 'HOT WATER'.
Water is a fundamental element for all beings on Earth. A symbol of life
and a 'common good' which should be available to all, water is quickly
becoming a commodity to some, and often taken as hostage in conflicts to
besiege and displace populations. Corporates, governments, and industries
such as mining and tourism use it for their own short-term benefits,
depriving people especially Indigenous people and farmers of their
rights, causing pollution, threatening health and the environment, and
compromising long-term water management.
How can art, science, design, and activism reinstate the social, cultural
and environmental value of water?
How can we share the responsibility of water in a positive way?
How can we all preserve the right of access to water?
How can intergenerational knowledge-sharing get us out of ³HOT WATER², end
conflict and find peace?

INVITATION FOR SCHOLARS TO CONTRIBUTE TO THE ARCHIVE OF DIGITAL ART
The Archive of Digital Art invites scholars to make contributions:
The Archive of Digital Art (ADA) expands its field of contributors.
Most recently, not only artists, but also scholars can become members of
the vivid online community of the archive.
Since its foundation in 1999, the Archive of Digital Art (former
Database of Virtual Art) has become the most important academic online
archive for media art. In cooperation with established media artists and
institutions it has been documenting the rapidly evolving world of
digital art and its related fields for more than a decade and contains
today a selection of thousands of artworks at the intersection of art,
science, and technology.
Scholars are now invited to upload their publications, information on
conferences, exhibitions and teaching to the archive. Thus, they are
represented in the archive and can work collaboratively with artists on
the documentation and analysis of digital art. Amongst others,
collective keywording of media art works is carried out.
Scholars can also use the new ADA “light box” tool which
facilitates the examination and comparison of images for research and
teaching. Interested scholars may apply for an account here:
