The evening commences the SCANZ 2015 International Celebration of Water and Peace, with events starting at the Huatoki Plaza on Saturday 31st of January and Sunday 1st February starting at 11am and running till 4pm.

The night projection artists are:

Inahaa Te Urutahi Waikerepuru
Warrior Mountain of Peace
This montage is based on the birth of our landscape of Aotearoa and the greatest love story ever told, that abides deep within the caverns and crevasses of Papa-tu-a-nuku.

Jo Tito
Project Peace Mandala
This work has been created from photographic images of nature. Mandala is a Sanskrit word for circle, it is a symbol that has resonated with me all my life and in my journey as an artist.

Claire Brunet
Susan Fryberg
Convergence
This work is an interactive night time projection in which the concept of water and its sustainability is investigated, through a convergence of 3D digital objects with recordings of water and voices.

Allan Giddy
Night swimmer
A Sisyphean swimmer toils relentlessly against the current. His single stroke, trapped in an endless glitch of video, pulls a moment into a string of moments, into a night of moments.

Additional works created by SCANZ participants will also be viewable on the night.

Quirky Creative – SCANZ 2015 Water and Peace Programme

Mon 26 Jan 1-4pm
Vessels: Mosaic baths for birds or bees, or mosaic glass water bottles
Kids will be making shallow mosaic dishes for birds, or for bees (bees need water too! And they adore blue things). Adults and older kids have the choice of starting a more intricate stained glass mosaic on a glass water bottle suitable for the dining table.

Tue 27 Jan 10am-1pm
Psychedelic Hippy Day: Tie-dye shirts with a peace message
Hippy philosophy is about more than the rainbow tie dye, but it is an eye-catching way to say something important. Make a shirt to wear at Saturday’s public gathering! BYO white cotton t-shirt. We will have fabric panels available if you can’t bring a t-shirt.

Wed 28 Jan 1-4pm
Raindrop Art: Glistening drops to display later at Huatoki Plaza
We’ll use several different art forms, including Zentangle, to create raindrops – take some home, donate some for Saturday’s display.

Fri 30 Jan 10am-1pm
Art Abandonment
: Tiny projects made to be abandoned and found
Stencilled rocks, bottlecap collages, woolly octopus, and some other surprises – abandoned art is made to be left somewhere around town, with a tag for the finder to let us know what they found and where.

Sat 31 Jan 11am-4pm
Visit the Quirky Kids space at the Huatoki Plaza

Workshops held at Creative Focus, Block C, WITT

Booking is essential due to limited spaces. For more info contact Quirky Creative.

Water health with Kevin Archer and Chris Fowles of TRC

This is the programme for the activity led by Chris Fowles and Kevin Archer, as part of SCANZ 2015 International Celebration of Water and Peace in central New Plymouth on Saturday 31st January 2015.

11.00am -11.30am

· We will talk in general terms about Council monitoring of Taranaki rivers and streams and in particular the Huatoki Stream, focusing on the macroinvertebrates and how we use their presence or absence as an indicator of water quality.

· We will mention our school’s education programme from primary up to Y13 science programmes involving our use of SHMAK ( Stream Health Measurement and Assessment Kit).

· We will touch on how we also use water turbidity and temperature readings as other indicators.

· We will have on display several trays of water samples(containing invertebrates) that we have taken earlier in the morning from a site further upstream. We will have on hand appropriate identification sheets to help us come up with a ‘score’ for the water quality at that site.

11.30am-12.15pm – Practical session
For safety reasons we will not expect people to get into the stream but Chris and I will as we will be wearing waders. We will gather samples from the stream, put them into our large white trays and ask people to try and identify the invertebrates along the same lines as we did in the talk itself. Again we will have appropriate identification sheets on hand. We will also get some people to look along the turbidity tube to gauge the clarity of the water plus ask people to read the thermometers.

12.15pm -12.30pm – review of session and questions.
