CIRCUIT Activities / Treasurer Wanted

The first meeting of the CIRCUIT Critical Forum, a monthly meeting of professional artists took place earlier this month at Artspace, Auckland. The Critical Forum is an opportunity for artists to present ideas informing their practice, in discussion with an expanded peer group. Auckland meetings will continue on a monthly basis. A call-out for a Wellington group will be made in the new year.

Six Videos for TEZA is a group of works by Rebecca Hobbs, Steve Carr, Lucien Rizos, Claire Harris, Layne Waerea and  Murray Hewitt. Each work has been programmed in response to the daily themes shaping Christchurch Festival TEZA (Transitional Economic Zone of Aotearoa), which is dedicated to alternative models of economics. Each work shows in Picture House, a two-seated cinema in a mobile billboard trailer. A big CIRCUIT thanks to Heather Hayward for the invitation.

Help wanted: CIRCUIT seeks a Treasurer to join it's Trust Board. The ideal candidate will be a qualified accountant, experienced with the non-profit sector and able to assist the Director in periodic financial reporting. For more information please write to <>.
