Nanageddon: The End of Craft as We Know It

Saturday, August 22nd, 2009


this sounds awesome…

ROAR! Gallery invites you to Nanageddon, a new group Exhibition featuring the work of: Outdoor Knit, Di McMillan, Caroline McQuarrie, Athina Moisa, Ann Moore, Rowan Panther, Matthew Squire, Margaret Tolland, Shar Young, and KIRAN-X.

August 20th – September 12th 2009.

Nanageddon showcases artists who are hailing the revival of stitching and knitting, subverting the idea of “Nana-craft” and reclaiming the art of craft in truly revealing ways. In this exhibition, what might sound like the work of a harmless old lady, turns out to be the act of some edgy, post-modern and radical thinker.

You have probably heard that the government  has cut ACE funding to schools by 80%, and there will also no longer be any funding available to community groups through schools after the end of 2009… (No more night classes!)


Show your opposition, and  support the community by attending the protest march on Parliament on Tuesday 4 August (tomorrow), leaving Wellington High School at 2.15pm to arrive at Parliament by 3pm.

The route for the march will be from Gate 4 on Taranaki Street (by the
pedestrian crossing next to the school gym – assemble around the gym
outside area), then down Taranaki Street, along Dixon Street to
Victoria Street, then down Manners Street to Willis Street then along
Lambton Quay to Parliament.  If you can’t be at the start, just join
the march along the way or meet us at Parliament if you can.

Spread the word!

outdoor knit

Its the new graffitti- and It’ll make you smile…

You may have seen the “it’ll all be ok” installation near the Wellington bypass… (it even got a mention in the Dom Post)

Or perhaps you’ve noticed a tree limb lovingly wrapped in a knitted cosy somewhere?

If this sort of thing takes your fancy, Nikki White of the exellent Outdoor Knit Blog is calling for helpers on her next project… “A Fence full of Hearts”

Check out her blog, or the facebook event page to get involved, and spread the love!

(also, check out this for some amazing international knit graffiti pics…)
