Conference Functions

Welcome Function

Govett-Brewster Art Gallery/Len Lye Centre, 1 August, 5.30 – 7.00pm

Join us at New Zealand’s leading contemporary art museum for our pre conference get together.  The Gallery is a short walk from the TSB Showplace so after you register, make your way over for a 5.30pm start.  The Len Lye Centre is an award-winning institution and the first of its kind dedicated to a single artist – pioneering filmmaker and kinetic sculptor, Len Lye.  Like a Lye sculpture, the building exhibits a shimmering stainless steel façade in what is a striking and provocative expression of movement.

It is here that you will be warmly welcomed to New Plymouth and exposed to the collections and works of this extraordinary mind, while you network as our guests and enjoy a glass of wine from our sponsor Villa Maria Estates Winery.
