Trees at the Meteor 2010

Posted 6 years, 12 months ago    0 comments

Its year three for Trees at the Meteor, an awesome event I took part of back in 2009 and eagerly anticipate for 2010!  There are a couple less categories this year but it doesnt mean there will be less to see as more people get creating each year! Expect a bigger, brighter show and lots more competition.

Here's some information for those interested in entering or even just going along to see the trees others create-

........ we have a big Christmas Tree in Garden Place.  But it comes from China.  Santa comes from the North Pole.  Aint it time we got our hands covered with PVA and glitter, and paper mache, and got some friends and whanau over to make a little Christma s tree 'whoopee'.    NZ's styles.  Pacific styles...  Under the Southern Cross.  2010!

You creatives out there.   Make it.  You.  Yourselfs without the elfs.  All we are saying is give trees a chance -  And for what better cause? 

And honestly.  In December it doesn't snow in Hamilton.  Never has.  Probably wont. We don't roast chestnuts, we roast politicians.  We wear singlets.  We sweat and sometimes wear deodarant and Speedo's.  And we used to get sunburnt to blazes at Whangamata before we got any wiser.

Plazas and malls deck the halls but we don't want a bar of it

We don't have a bar to spend anyways. Still paying off the last bar we spent when no one knew what  a recession was.   Ahhhh the good old days.... never again Santa Visa!

TREES AT THE METEOR celebrates Christmas different.  Why?  Because Kiwi-ness is in.  King Charity is in.  Rejoice as Pinus Radiata meets Pasifika.  Create Aotearoa avant gardens.  Subvert the tree, decorate a tree.  Make art. Make festivity.  And help make a festive forest. 

We want you to give.  Decorate a tree for the city.  Compassion not consumption.  Make art from the heart. Keep it real and green......
