ARTIVIST : creative provide TD & visuals for NZ artists at AWME

24 11 2009

ARTIVIST : creative provide technical direction & visuals for NZ performers at AWME 2009 including Rhombus (with Michel Tuffery MNZM), Little Bushmen, Mihirangi, Tama Waipera & the NOMAD.

“It was an honor to work with such a calibre of act & a high level of artistic integrity” said JoFF Rae… “the features of the Expo for me were hanging out with legendary graff’ artist HAHA, artists Ero & the NOMAD & the jam with the Mad Professor!  The Rhombus performance & working with Tuffery again was the cream!”

The Expo in Melbourne was a success for CNZ & the artists with a stream of bookings!  The contingent from NZ had showcases in the Black Box at the Melbourne Arts Center, a nice room with an intimate feel & a capacity of not more than 250.

Looking forward to 2010!  Special thanks to CNZ, Koa & the NOMAD.
