Trustees Noel Waite, Suze Keith, Matt Shircliffe, Butch Riechelmann and Rob Tuwhare will visit Kaka Point from 14-16 March. They will be joined by Trust manager Chris McBride. The visit will allow time to check on the grounds and the crib and check for any small issues that may need attending to. Mitre 10s Stan Scott will also be with the team and will advise (along with Rob) on any minor fixes required to the crib prior to the eventual restoration programme. The Trustees will also have a public meeting on Sunday morning – details below. The following week, conservation architect Graeme Burgess will be down to make an assessment of the crib in preparation for developing a conservation plan. This plan will assist the trust in establishing further funding for the full restoration and residency project.
do you remember
that wild stretch of land
with the lone tree guarding the point
from the sharp-tongued sea?
A warm invitation to meet the trustees and manager of The Hone Tuwhare Charitable Trust at a public meeting on Sunday 16th March 10am, Kaka Point Community Hall. Another step in our ongoing project to create a writers residence at Hone’s crib.
The Trust would like to extend it’s warmest thank you to John Pule, Tracey Tawhiao, Ans Westra, Stanley Palmer, and Wayne Youle for their generosity donating some of their proceeds of their artwork and to Art + Object for including these pieces in their New Collectors Art action – The auction will be held 5th of March 2013 6 pm at Art + Object 3 Abby St, Newton.
Below are the 5 pieces which will be supporting the Trust.
We’re thrilled to announce that local company Terramark, a Dunedin-based resource management, surveying and engineering services business, has been engaged to survey Hone’s crib and provide us the information we need to further develop our design plan.
