Creative Space

Outsider Art; a label given to art created by artists with no formal training, a large subset of which are artists with intellectual disabilities. There's a network of galleries dedicated to such artists across the country, called Creative Spaces, workers of which are gathering in Wellington for an annual conference run by Arts Access Aotearoa, later this week. There's an exhibition running at the same time at Wellington's Alpha Gallery. Bryan Crump went to meet the organisers and some of the artists.

Marc Taddei

New Zealand based US born conductor Marc Taddei has broken back into the classical music scene in his home country. Marc moved here in the 1990s to become the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra's principal trombonist, before moving into conducting. Since then he's been the musical director of the Christchurch Symphony, and these days is in charge of Orchestra Wellington - a job he'll now share with his role as the director of the Vallejo Symphony on the northern side of San Francisco Bay. To get the gig, Marc had to win over management, the players and the audience with a trial concert.
