Creative Palmerston North - Celebrating Community Involvement in the Arts

Events > Exhibitions

Fran Dibble
at Zimmerman Art Gallery
1 Apr 2013 - 30 Apr 2013

Added by Zimmerman

This month, coinciding with the gallery’s third anniversary, ZIMMERMAN is celebrating community involvement in the arts in Palmerston North.

WHY? The arts are an integral part of a healthy culture. By providing appropriate venues and opportunities for involvement, organisations that support community arts initiatives contribute to Palmerston North’s vision as a “vibrant, caring, creative and sustainable city”.

WHO? ZIMMERMAN is celebrating the work of three community organisations, who each contribute in different ways to Palmerston North’s vision of being a vibrant, caring, creative and sustainable city:

• Community Arts Palmerston North
• Te Manawa Art Society Incorporated
• S+ART (Science Technology + ART Trust)

These three groups were initially chosen due to Director Bronwyn Zimmerman’s active role on the governance boards of each. However, these three groups also represent a cross-section of the breadth of community-based arts initiatives in Palmerston North, serving different communities of interest and supplying different outcomes to our City’s residents.

HOW? Each of the three profiled groups will be represented in the gallery by one or more installations or exhibits, together with information on options for joining, supporting or finding out more about each group. Please take this opportunity to ask any questions, sign up as a member or interested party, or to offer your suggestions or support.

WHEN? The feature runs throughout April 2013.

We welcome you to call by ZIMMERMAN this month to find out more about each of these diverse community-based groups. Meantime, some "quick facts" about each group is set out below, as well as ways in which you can become involved or express your support.
