Community Building Practice Skills with Jim Diers and Inspiring Communities 2 Days Workshop

Tuesday, May 10, 2016 to Wednesday, May 11, 2016

Skills for Working with communities in CLD ways: community building, Appreciative inquiry, Asset mapping AND ACTION with inspiring Communities and Jim Diers.


1. to contribute to the development of confident skilled practitioners who can better help enable ideas into action; and

2. to generate useful information and pathways for the contributing community.

This is not a very introductory course and is aimed at practitioners from a wide range of situations who already have some understanding and experience of community building in a locally-led way and who want to particularly develop skills about visioning, asset mapping and activating. These people may be volunteers as well as professionals. If the group is largely new to this work we can reshape the content to be more introductory.

The goals will be accomplished by sharing learning (international, national and local), building on the skills in the room and teaching particular skills in an applied manner with and in a selected community where these practices will useful for their further development.

The structure of the session means that practical outcomes will be upskilled individuals as well as locally gathered information (could include asset maps, creative public interaction, community conversations and mobilisation as decided with the community) of the participating community and the development of several local projects.

Wizard of Oz - RNZB

Saturday, May 21, 2016

Created by RNZB Artistic Director Francesco Ventriglia in Florence in 2010, through an accident of fate, this charming two act ballet based on L. Frank Baum’s much-loved story of love, friendship, and the joy of coming home, was never performed.

Six years on, the world premiere of The Wizard of Oz is set to tour throughout New Zealand, with all the familiar characters brought to life in a beautiful design by Gianluca Falaschi. Music by Francis Poulenc sets the scene for a colourful staging that is sure to enchant audiences of all ages.

Join Dorothy on her journey to the Emerald City, and the friends and foes she encounters along the way, as she learns that quick wits, compassion and courage – and just a touch of magic – are inside us all.

Choreography: Francesco Ventriglia
Design: Gianluca Falaschi

Production originally commissioned by Teatro del Maggio Musicale Fiorentino.

The Rocky Horror Picture Show

Saturday, June 25, 2016

Give yourself over to absolute pleasure.....

In Jim Sharman’s 1975 musical horror comedy starring Tim Curry, Susan Sarandon and Barry Bostwick, newly engaged couple Brad Majors and Janet Weiss find themselves lost and with a flat tire on a cold and rainy late November evening, somewhere near Denton, Ohio. Seeking a telephone, the couple walk to a nearby castle where they discover a group of strange and outlandish people who are holding an Annual Transylvanian Convention.

Brad and Janet are soon swept into the world of Dr. Frank N. Furter, a self-proclaimed “sweet transvestite from Transsexual, Transylvania”.

The BBC says The Rocky Horror Picture Show is “for those willing to experiment with something a little bit different, a little bit outré… ”

Get your hot patootie down to the Regent Theatre and rose tint our world with your sweet transvestite, wild, untamed costumes – there may be prizes…..

We want everyone to have a rocking good time so if you want to dance, please book seats in the stalls. If you just want to watch the film, it will be best to choose seats in the circle.
