Wearable arts will amaze
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 firstname.lastname@example.org
Northlanders have amazing creative talent.
