Two cool fundraisers coming up for the Greens and Labour.
The Greens are holding a screening of Kiwi ‘s The Age of Stupid, a movie set in 2055 looking back at today and asking the painful, obvious question – ‘if we could see all these problems of resource exhaustion, pollution, cliamte change, and over-population coming, why didn’t we do enough to head them off?’ The film has been getting great reviews. Well, worth seeing – $20, 6:30 at Paramount in Welly on August 20th. You’ll need to get tickets beforehand – firstname.lastname@example.org
Labour is holding the inaugural Peter Fraser memorial dinner at the Circa theatre in Wellington, 6pm August 24th. Bit more up-market this one. $70 waged, $60 unwaged for dinner and the inaugural lecture to be delivered by Professor Paul Callaghan, founder of the MacDiarmid Institute at Victoria University, on the vision and values that drove the great man’s life.
