DOC, Creative New Zealand partnership continues More New Zealand artists will be inspired by New Zealand’s natural environment and cultural heritage with the continuation of a successful Creative New Zealand partnership with the Department of Conservation. Wild Creations is a fusion of conservation and creativity supporting artists to be inspired by experiencing the places, people, and stories of New Zealand’s unique environment and cultural heritage. They

may work in any art form or area of arts practice supported by Creative New Zealand. Wild Creations builds on an artist-in-residence programme of the same name offered from 2002 to 2012. A re-invigorated Wild Creations, broader in scope, was offered in 2017 as a pilot and with some refinements it will be continued for another two years. Applications open today. Cath Cardiff, for Crea-

tive New Zealand, says the pilot programme attracted a lot of interest with a number of high quality applications were received. “The three successful applicants submitted innovative proposals. They have made or are making highquality artwork inspired by their experiences that will be enjoyed by many.” DOC Director, National Operations, Hilary Aikman said Wild Creations helps to connect more Kiwis to our natural environ-


ment and cultural heritage. “The work of these talented artists is giving DOC great opportunities to connect more New Zealanders to conservation stories through art.” The initiative offers a minimum of two artists the opportunity to experience DOC environments and / or programmes between December 2018 and June 2019, as inspiration for new art work. To apply, visit the Creative New Zealand website.

OF THE WEEK TIL a 2004 study of 43 fruits and vegetables found that their nutritional value has decreased significantly over the past 50 years. The nutrients include protein, calcium, phosphorus, iron, riboflavin and ascorbic acid. The declines, which ranged from 6 percent for protein to 38 percent for riboflavin, raise significant questions about how modern agriculture practices are affecting food crops.
