Wearable arts will amaze

Northern News - - OUT & ABOUT - AN­NETTE LAMBLY

En­tries are be­ing called for the Wearable Arts Ex­trav­a­ganza - a new ad­di­tion to the North­land arts cal­en­dar which prom­ises a visual dis­play of de­signs and an ar­ray of en­ter­tain­ment.

Many have al­ready en­tered, but peo­ple have un­til July 17 to get their name down to be part of what or­gan­is­ers say will be a night not to be missed. The event is open to en­tries from adults and North­land school stu­dents from year 6 up­wards.

This event, hosted by the Dar­gav­ille Arts As­so­ci­a­tion, will be held over two nights in the Dar­gav­ille War Memo­rial Hall on Septem­ber 15-16.

Co-or­gan­iser Ch­eryl Carmichael says ‘‘It’s an amaz­ing chance to have a lot of fun, let your dreams and imag­i­na­tion go wild and de­sign a cos­tume that will be a show stop­per.’’

‘‘Our vi­sion is to show­case our ta­lent, our busi­nesses and our spec­tac­u­lar area to the wider North­land au­di­ence.

‘‘We are ex­pect­ing ticket hold­ers to stay overnight to ex­plore and ex­pe­ri­ence what this western part of North­land has to of­fer.’’

There are four cat­e­gories and no ma­jor re­stric­tions on de­sign apart from be­ing wearable through both nights en­ter­tain­ment. There are tro­phies for all win­ners, and cash prizes.

❚ Tick­ets go on sale from mid July. For more in­for­ma­tion email dar­gav­ille@wear­ablearts.nz


North­landers have amaz­ing cre­ative ta­lent.
