Clean-up team makes their mark

The Tribune (NZ) - - ENVIRONMENT -

‘Itif­farg’, or re­verse graf­fiti has left its mark on city streets.

The Palmer­ston North City Coun­cil graf­fiti re­moval team have been wa­terblast­ing pave­ments in the cen­tral city, and have cre­ated ‘re­verse graf­fiti’.

Re­verse graf­fiti, or clean ad­ver­tis­ing, is lit­er­ally a water­mark. It is made by wa­terblast­ing around a sten­cil screen on the pave­ment.

The Reel Earth En­vi­ron­men­tal Film Fes­ti­val ap­proached the coun­cil about plac­ing en­vi­ron­men­tally friendly ads around the CBD for the fes­ti­val which kicks off on Novem­ber 13. Waterblasted onto city streets, The Reel Earth logo will fade as the pave­ment gets dirty again.

Those who take a photo of a Reel Earth re­verse graf­fiti logo and post it on the My Manawatu face­book page face­book.com/ my­manawatunz, along with its lo­ca­tion, go into a fes­ti­val movie pass draw.

There are dou­ble passes to be won for Burn­ing in the Sun about the so­lar elec­tri­fi­ca­tion of ru­ral Mali, and for Bid­der 70 about civil dis­obe­di­ence to de­mand govern­ment and oil in­dus­try ac­count­abil­ity. Both screen on Satur­day 14. Win­ners will be no­ti­fied by next Wed­nes­day Novem­ber 4.

The home­grown Reel Earth En­vi­ron­men­tal Film Fes­ti­val opens Fri­day Novem­ber 13 with a movie week­end at the Globe The­atre, fol­lowed by a se­ries of pop-up out­door films at 50 Ge­orge St, and a City Li­brary en­vi­ron­men­tal fo­rum day.
