This initiative pro- vides opportunities for artists in the Far North and gives inmates in the Portfolios Art Pro- gramme an awareness of the practice and skills required in professional art industries. Part of the programme is Inside Out, where artworks can be viewed and bought. The latest exhibition is on until April 19 at the Community Arts Centre in Mairangi Bay, Auck- land where all proceeds go to Victim Support. An integral part of the Ngawha corrections facility is the magnifi- cent pua wananga build- ing, which is used to deliver programmes, chaplaincy services and other cultural events where all are welcome and treated with dignity and respect. The build- ing also houses superb carvings and tukutuku panels designed and created by prisoners from the Portfolios Art Programme and Whakairo. The facility also boasts some truly amazing murals. Chris and Clare Penny Studio Almost single-handed and after five months of labour, Chris Penny has built a very functional studio available to all genres of performance. Some time ago Chris and Kerikeri flautist extraordinaire Clare saw a need for a studio that would be available for performances, rehearsals and recording. The 42 square metre studio houses Clare's 108-year- old white Ibach grand piano with seating for about 50. The windows and huge bifold glass door are doubled glazed. The studio is air- conditioned and heated and features flexible track lighting. Stage two will be a 30 square metre deck for outdoor con- certs. I can't wait for the first concert -- Bravo the Pennys. Kerikeri International Piano Competition The event is firmly established on the inter- national music calendar. The competition runs from June 28 to July 1 at the Turner Centre in Kerikeri. You can become a Friend of KIPC and get discounts during the competition and other KIPC events by going to kipc.org. Billets are still needed for competitors. If you can offer accommodation contact Jane Jackets, PO Box 269, Kaikohe 0440. Weaving an enterprise from home Own business: Susan Clarke has graduated from NorthTec's Maori weaving course. Using the skills gained on both the certificate and diploma in Maori weaving at NorthTec, Kaitaia's Susan Clarke has established a pro- ductive enterprise in weaving at home. I am pleased at what I have been able to achieve at NorthTec. It taught me a lot,'' Susan says. Susan has graduated from the Te Pokairua Ngapuhi-Nui-Tonu -- Te Raranga or Diploma in Maori Weaving (Level 6), saying it was a great experience. The skills she learned have been used to create her own weaving enterprise at home. Raranga tutor Te Hemoata Henare said Susan was asked to exhibit some of her work for an exhibition at Turangi where her whakapapa originates. The exhibition's success inspired her to continue with the artform. Susan says while raranga or Maori weav- ing is not for everyone, working with your hands and using natural resources is doing some- thing creative rather than relying on social welfare. There is no reason why our own people can- not be doing something like this to get ahead,'' she says.
