Mayor Len Brown has asked for a report on attracting more high profile international events and promoting ''distinctive local events'' to domestic and overseas visitors. Similarly attractions around the city such as sculpture or wine trails can be promoted as regional packages to visitors, he says. International events coming include the Rugby World Cup next year and the Volvo Ocean Race and the triathlon world championships in 2012. Next year Auckland's biennial arts festival celebrates its fifth birthday and the city will also host Pasifika, the largest Pacific festival in the world. Playschool plan Manukau Parents Centre is looking to start up a playschool. And it wants to find out who from the community would be interested in coming along. The preschool is designed for children up to five years old but parents with younger babies may also attend. Contact Marta on 266-8693 or email foldkozi@hot mail.com to register your interest. Exhibition draws on residents' talents By MELISSA KINEALY Community art: Fresh Gallery Otara manager Ema Tavola says the latest exhibition, Drawing South Auckland, is a chance for everyone to be an artist. Photo: SHANE WENZLICK Residents can make their own mark in a new exhibition at an art gallery. The tables at Fresh Gallery Otara are set with pens and paper and the community's invited to get involved in Drawing South Auckland. Manager Ema Tavola wants people of all ages from the community to draw their ideas and impressions of south Auckland. People can come into the gallery, email or drop off their drawings to be part of the mass mural the gallery's aiming to create. Ms Tavola's expecting the gallery to have floor-to-ceiling drawings by the end of the the community participation project. Drawing is a basic expression -- there's no good or bad work,'' she says. A recent customer satisfac- tion survey at the gallery showed people want more audience participation. This environment gets back to what the gallery is all about -- reflecting people and the community.'' The exhibition will be three weeks of social inquiry and it's an open and equal plat- form, she says. Ms Tavola says the gal- lery's also keen to grow its online audience with a vir- tual exhibition. So once the drawings are finished gallery assistant Nicole Lim puts them up on the wall, photographs them and loads each one on to Flickr, with a tweet link for Twitter. The exhibition will grow each day and over the weeks will become a mass mural of pictures and messages. Follow Fresh Gallery Otara on Twitter http://Twitter.com/ Fresh274 to trace its progress online. Drawing South Auckland is on until November 27. It replaces the scheduled exhi- bition Open Canvas. Exhibition entry is free. Contact Nicole Lim on 271-6019 or email Nicole.Lim@auckland council.govt.nz for more information.
