Colour consultant takes on new challenge By Julia Czerwonatis
For Churton Park resident Kim Nicol colours matter significantly. Kim has been working with paints for years now and is a real expert when it comes to advising others which shades of blue, white, green or red would fit into their homes. After being a colour consultant at Resene for 16 years, Kim has
now dared to take a new step and started her own business, All Colour Matters. “A lot of people kept on suggesting that I should start my own business but I never felt the need until now. “I hit the ground running with All Colour Matters. I helped out at a neighbour’s friend’s house and just picked it up from there,” Kim explains.
She says this new professional challenge was daunting but exciting at the same time. “I look forward to diving into my work with the new business. “In my job, I enjoy that I become friends with the majority of my clients, and I often get to return to them when they renovate other parts of their houses.” She says her role as a colour consultant was important be-

A creative team from different Kiwi organisations has embarked on a new journey in celebration of traditional seafaring waka. The New Zealand Festival partnered up with Te Atiawa/ Taranaki Whanui Iwi and the A Waka Odyssey to bring together Pacific and Maori navigators and the waka community, haka exponents and musicians at the festival’s opening night event, Kupe. Kupe will take place next week on Wellington’s waterfront and is inspired by the arrival of explorer Kupe in Aotearoa. The event will bring together three waka whose crews have embarked on voyages around New Zealand, the Pacific, and the world, and are dedicated to revitalising ancient and contemporary waka knowledge.
“My vision for the festival includes a strong engagement with the community, bringing to the fore the unique cultures of this land and the arts as a unifying force,” NZ Festival director Shelagh Magadza says. “Undoubtedly, this event will leave a remarkable legacy for people across New Zealand and the Pacific as we honour the stories of our ancestors and forge new ways of living together.” The Festival Opening Night will be held on Friday, February 23, at the Wellington waterfront from 7pm.
