Painting Happiness 1-day Experience

Join me for a day of artistic play, where you’ll let go of the outside world and discover the life you long to live.

Through creative play and guided meditation, you’ll shift from your logical ‘to do list’ mindset, to your love based creative mindset. I’ll guide you to paint your own mandala, a visual representation of your universe with you at the centre. As you sink into the joy of simply creating, you’ll infuse the canvas with all your positive energy, hopes and dreams.

The only rule in this free-flowing workshop is that there are no right or wrong. I’ll be there to gently support you in exploring your innate creativity, while playfully kicking perfectionism and comparison to the kerb.

Painting Happiness is about you and the canvas, loads of glorious colour, permission to play and a whole lot of belly laughs in the company of like-minded women. Come join us and discover the inner world you never knew existed.

Honest Liars Improv Comedy Jam

A New Year and New Laughs.
Bring the gang and come out for some hilarious comedy improv.

Hilarious Comedy Improvisation like “Whose Line is it Anyway.”
Nothing scripted, suggestions from the audience inspire scenes for the show. Spontaneous, entertaining and fun. Anything can happen and often does.
Clever, quick-witted, and charming. Dumb, silly, and potentially offensive.
Both statements equally define an Honest Liars Improv Show. The audience suggestions make up the content of the show. Fun comedy games such as World Worst, Props and Emotional Symphony are sure to delight audiences.

When: Sunday 2nd May 2021  TBC
Where: The Jam Factory, Historic Village
Cost: $10

A great night out for a group of friends. Honest Liars are the Bay of Plenty’s only comedy improv troupe. Evolving from a group of players from Papamoa, this group has grown to doing commercial shows, performing for events and parties and offers corporate improv training for businesses.

Ink Affair Book Club: Utopia for Realists by Rutger Bregman

This month’s book is:
Title: Utopia for Realists : And How We Can Get There
Author: Rutger Bregman
Description:

In Utopia for Realists, Rutger Bregman shows that we can construct a society with visionary ideas that are, in fact, wholly implementable. Every milestone of civilisation – from the end of slavery to the beginning of democracy – was once considered a utopian fantasy. New utopian ideas such as universal basic income and a fifteen-hour work week can become reality in our lifetime.

From a Canadian city that once completely eradicated poverty, to Richard Nixon’s near implementation of a basic income for millions of Americans, Bregman takes us on a journey through history, beyond the traditional left-right divides, as he introduces ideas whose time has come.

Emma is a local Tauranga artist and art educator.  I recently went on Emma Prill’s workshop.
