Wanganui Summer School of the Arts
Wanganui welcomes tutors and students attending the 2005 Summer School of the Arts.
There will be a week of intensive workshops taught by leading national and international artists. The workshops are for people who want to "have a go" and learn new creative skills, as well as for those who want to consolidate and extend their existing skills.
Workshops include painting, life drawing, printmaking, book arts, photography,
installation, fibre, clay, glass, bone carving, sculpture, jewellery,
writing and food. Most workshops run for seven days, with a few running
for four or six days.

Community organisations are advised that applications for Council funding (Community Contracts) for the 2005/2006 financial year (1 July-30 June) are now being called.
'Community Contracts' is the Council's funding scheme to community organisations, within the Wanganui District, which offer a service with positive benefits and outcomes to the community, in line with Council activities.
They must be applied for on a specific application form which is available, along with Explanation Notes and an Information Pamphlet, at the District Council Office, 101 Guyton Street, Wanganui.
A seminar will be held to assist organisations that wish to apply for
a Community Contract. The seminar will explain the general outline of
the scheme, provide details of the guidelines and criteria to be applied,
and answer queries concerning the scheme. Application forms will be available
at the seminar.
