PIYN 2010 project
We are once again involved in the amazing People In Your Neighbourhood (“PIYN“), project with the British Council in New Zealand. This year shows are held in Auckland, Taupo and Wellington, and feature from the UK – Urban Soul Orchestra & Charlie Dark.
The PIYN project involves aspiring artists and performers from Auckland’s ethnic communities, working with the best of contemporary UK talent, to create an album or other portable multimedia, and perform a live street-style urban show. As part of the British Council New Zealand’s Creative Economy programme we have our flagship event called People In Your Neighbourhood which launched March 2009. A Creative Commons album was released nationwide, and the PIYN shows were an outstanding success.
Planning for the 2010 event is currently underway. PIYN 2010 will involve live shows in Auckland and Wellington May 2010, as well as UK visitors USO (Urban Soul Orchestra), and acclaimed street poet and urban creative guru Charlie Dark (Attica Blues, Blacktronica). The event in 2010 will focus on participatory media, live streaming internet technology and online income generation toolkits for diverse aspiring creatives – stay tuned for more details.
