Lemon Squeezer hats

I am considering having a number of NZ ‘Lemon Squeezer’ hats made and wondered if anyone knew of a good source or was interested in collaborating to make up a larger order?


Opposition to Conscription: A Poster Series

30 September 2013 - 4:52pm -- Ryan Bodman

Hi there,

My name's Ryan and I'm hoping to organise a poster series that commemorates opposition to conscription during the First World War. The labour movement, a number of iwi and a handful or churches all opposed conscription following its introduction in 1916. 

Some of the people we hope to celebrate in this poster series are Te Puea Herangi, Archibald Baxter and Peter Fraser.

I  have an exhibition of 11 works, based on the poppy, a symbol of remembrance since 1921 in New Zealand, to offer for display at either ANZAC, or Remembrance Day commemorations. These works were first exhibited on 11/11/11. This show, at the Real Tart Gallery, was opened at 11am by the New Plymouth RSA, and reported in the local Taranaki Daily News.

I would like to contribute to the 100 year celebrations, by making my series of 11 works from 'Remembrance' (each acrylic, on canvas, 18x18", some with tissue paper, and all with colour pencil) available for display.

Soldiers - A Song Written as a Homage

5 August 2013 - 5:03pm -- J Turner

Dear All,

I have written and recorded a song "Soldiers".   I would like to dedicate tthe song to  WW100 and to all the men & women of the armed services who so bravely,  and with sacrifice,  have contributed to making NZ the country it is today.


I am a young NZ singer songwriter  in my 20s. It means so much to me to know that previous generations so selflessly gifted us today the opportunity to live in relative peace & harmony in our beautiful country.


How do I share this song ?


Yours in music  Julia x 

Portraits of a century

24 June 2013 - 5:48pm -- Jamie Mackay

Set up a national project to encourage young people (let's say 15-25 year-olds) to find an image of a First World War ancestor and send it in along with a contemporary photograph of themselves. These could then be displayed side-by-side in an exhibition - online and/or physical.  The best ones could maybe go into a picture book as well. Ideally the images would be at hi-res to allow them to be displayed at a decent size.

The idea here is to create a simple but striking visual connection with the First World War for the young adults of today.
