The arts com­mu­nity in Palmer­ston North is a re­ally big part of our city, so it’s fan­tas­tic to see the Arts Re­cy­cling & Dezine Cen­tre has re­opened.

It would have been a shame to lose the re­source, which is un­doubt­edly valu­able for our lo­cal artists and those with a pen­chant for cre­at­ing.

Not only has it been saved but it’s been fresh­ened up and and trans­formed into a gallery space wor­thy of dis­play­ing all of our won­der­ful artists’ works.

Com­mu­nity vol­un­teers have again proven their value.

An­other well-sup­ported artis­tic ven­ture in our re­gion is the Feild­ing Evento wear­able arts show. While the event is not right here in our own com­mu­nity, it has ex­panded to al­low our stu­dents to en­ter and there was a strong con­tin­gent of Palmer­ston North sup­port­ers at the show on Satur­day night, which was won­der­ful to see.

Events like this light up our young peoples’ cre­ativ­ity and en­thu­si­asm for bring­ing art to life.
