In 2011 an unprecedented number of events are taking place in galleries and performing arts venues across the region, he says. Tickets are on sale now.

Competition to find flagbearers Nearly 100 young Kiwis will get the chance to lead teams out on to the field during Rugby World Cup matches this year. Rugby World Cup sponsor Emirates Airline is running a competition among secondary schools for representatives to carry the national flags of the 20 competing teams at rugby stadiums in 13 centres. This is a top chance for young Kiwis to be part of what will be an historical event, both in world terms and certainly in the New Zealand context, says Emirates manager Chris Lethbridge. We considered this an ideal opportunity to involve aspiring players and fans locally so, with the exception of a handful of occasions, the flagbearers for the 20 teams will be New Zealanders. Flagbearers will be used at all pool matches as well as the quar- ter and semifinals, playoff for third place and the final itself. Competition details will be announced in February so that arrangements can be made with sufficient notice. For the pool matches, the com- petition will be divided into regions, guaranteeing local prov- incial representation among the flagbearers. Each flagbearer will receive tickets for two accompanying adults to attend the match at which they fly a flag. We feel it only fair that their parents or guardians can share in the honour, Mr Lethbridge says. A small number of flagbearers during pool play will be represen- tatives from key rugby-playing nations, also chosen through competitions.
