The Big Bike Film Night 'Feature Series' - THE MOMENT
(Tuesday 27th February 2018)

THE BIRTH OF A SPORT THAT NOBODY WANTED...

We’re bringing to the BIG screen the exciting feature length documentary “THE MOMENT”, and giving mountain bikers the movie they’ve been waiting for!

This film uncovers the origin of Freeride Mountain Biking, it’s provenance in British Columbia, Canada and the rebellious group of backwoods adrenaline junkies that changed the course of a sport that nobody wanted.

This film is the origin story of a small movement of mountain bikers and filmmakers who rose up, challenged the status quo, and turned the sport of cycling on its head.

It is a story that has never been told, told by the people who lived it firsthand.

The Curators highest rating yet… R+ Rad, Raucous and ROWDY! There are ‘blockbuster’ movies, and there are ‘Bikebuster’ movies- this is it, it’s a MUST SEE movie.

There will be several short MTB flics shown before screening THE MOMENT; is this the equivalent of MTB Heaven??? Come along and find out.

ONE NIGHT ONLY

Sending Love Project
(Thursday 1st-Wednesday 28th February 2018)

The Sending Love Project is about honouring those we care about and to take a moment to let them know. Jester House has dedicated the month of February to creating a space for people to connect with those they love but may not have told recently. There is nothing nicer than getting an unexpected postcard, in the mail, from your friend, daughter, mother, brother, father, Aunty, cousin etc.
And by Sending Love we hope we are helping to put more love and positivity into the world.
13 artists, both local and international, were given the Sending Love Brief to create an art piece to express what Sending Love means to them. The original art pieces they created have been scanned and reduced to a postcard size so that they can share their version of Sending Love with the world.
From the 1st of February, printed postcards of the original art works will be for sale. Our guests will be encouraged to send a message of love to someone important in their lives, and to bring more expressions of love into the community. Along with the 13 printed postcards to choose from, stamps will be available and an especially designed Sending Love Postbox at Jester House will provide for ease of sending a message of love.

The Work That Reconnects is a transformational body of work that includes theories and practices enabling us to reconnect to our own true nature, the web of life, and to our human community. Opening our hearts and minds to the love and the grief we feel for our world empowers us to act on behalf of Earth.
We are alive at an extraordinary moment in time - it is a time of growing uncertainty, as climate catastrophe looms, the sixth mass extinction accelerates, and the wounds of inequality and inhumanity are laid bare. It is also a time of great possibility when creativity, courage, and collective action can change the political and ecological landscape for future generations.

7 Day Silent Meditation Retreat
(Monday 12th-Sunday 18th March 2018)

There comes a time when you realise that what you have been looking for doesn’t in fact lie in the places you’ve been looking. The only qualification you need is a desire to go into the inner world and explore there in order to know yourself better. This opportunity for continuity in practice, uninterrupted by the demands and activities of the outer world, will deepen your ability to hear and listen to your own inner voice.
The mind can be tricky. It will present distractions and diversions along the way. With well-timed, intuitive guidance Sw. Anandakumar can skillfully help you navigate these detours bringing you back to connection with awareness so your practice continues to deepen. He teaches with a wisdom, authenticity and generosity of spirit born out of many years of practicing yoga and meditation. He encourages, inspires and gently guides you. With his warm down-to-earth manner, he makes the mystery of meditation clear and accessible.
Includes:
• Hatha Yoga classes
• Daily chanting
• Karma yoga (action with meditative awareness)
• Yoga Nidra
• Periods of silence for reflection

Casa Del Vino 3D Art Competition
(Wednesday 14th February-Friday 23rd March 2018)

CALLING ALL SCULPTORS LIVING IN THE TOP OF THE SOUTH!!! Win $3,000 with a wine-themed sculpture! Submissions are due by midnight on 23rd March 2018.

The theme of the competition is WINE. There are many interpretations of the myriad of aspects of wine, ranging from the visual beauty to the history, flavors, and traditions. Other aspects of WINE as a
theme to consider are the social implications and effects of WINE, the combination with food to create the art of dining, the production challenges, and the farming of vines. Wine has permeated civilization for thousands of years, and its place in society is important. However, it is not necessary to take it seriously all the time either. Art that incorporates humor, or thought provoking messages, movement (kinetic), or visually stunning technique is encouraged. Fun irreverence toward wine is also encouraged.

Submissions need to include a detailed description of the proposed artwork, with sketches or other visual aids that help communicate the concept and physical presence.

Materials, technique and colour palettes should be described, so the essence of the artwork to be created can be fully imagined.

Please also supply background on the inspiration and thought process involved in executing the competition’s theme. Please supply some photos of other 3D art that you have created already, although you will not be judged on those. It is to get a sense of your style and materials. All entries in the competition must be received by midnight March 23rd, 2018. Entries can be emailed or delivered to Casa Del Vino or Parker Gallery on or before this date only.

Maximum dimensions of the submitted artwork are below, but it need not be a large scale piece. The selected sculpture will be free-standing to be suitable for window display (ie. not wall-mounted).

180cm height
120cm width
50cm depth

Since this is a regional competition, artists living in the Top of The South are eligible to enter. That region includes artists working and living in the Nelson, Tasman & Marlborough districts.

A judging panel will decide the winner of the competition based on the written submissions. After announcing the competition winner, the artist will have six weeks to complete the commissioned artwork, which will be exhibited in the Casa Del Vino display window, available for sale.
