The blurb for the SubText08 event at the Central Library is below. What it doesn’t tell you is that there will be a piñata!
Many Questions: The SubText Non-pub pub quiz
Wellington Central Library, in the staff room on the 2nd floor (there will be signs showing you where to go)
Friday 29th August 6pm to 8pm
Do you know everything? Or do you know someone who thinks they do and you want to set them straight? Well the SubText Many Questions Quiz is the place for you (and your know-everything mates). It’s like a pub quiz, but without the pub. There will be trivia and diverting antics, food and spot prizes, and, most important of all, the chance to prove who does indeed know everything. So bring along a team (four maximum) or just yourself (we’ll match you up with a potentially winning combination) and we’ll finish off SubText 08 with a trivial bang.
Here’s the information about Kilbirnie’s SubText08. Start working on your entry now!
GET OFF YER ART
Be a ‘darling’ of the art world for a night! Ruth Gotlieb Library, Kilbirnie, is staging its very own art competition with a grand gallery opening on Friday 22nd Aug 2008, 6-8pm.
There’s no theme for the art and your work can be in any media; painting, sketching, photography, sculpture or textiles…let your imagination run wild. Or if you’ve got a piece already that you’re extremely proud of, enter that!
Don’t forget to invite friends and family, this is about showing off how talented you are and basking in the glory! There will be live music and refreshments not to mention master classes and demonstrations by local guest artists ranging from fashion sketching to life drawing…Come and be inspired!
The boring but essential small print: This competition is open to teens aged 13-17 (registered Subtext entrants or not). Artwork should be delivered to Kilbirnie Library at any point between 1st July and 18th August, with your name, contact phone number and age attached. Winners will be announced on the evening of the gallery opening and there will be one overall winner to whom will be awarded an awesome mystery prize. Judges decision is final and no correspondence will be entered into.
Information about this year’s SubText programme will be available from tomorrow. Here is a blurb about the event to be held at Karori library.
