Is a new initiative to MPR - supported by the Palmerston North City Council - showcasing and highlighting arts and creativity-based events of interest around the city.

To launch this new initiative, the first event will be:



Venue: Speakeasy - The Grand Hotel Building, Church St, PN
Time: 7pm-10pm Wednesday Nights
What: A 3-hour free-for-all session, hosted by local music legend, Jeff Carr

These weekly jam nights are growing in popularity, and are a great place to nurture and grow musical talent. For established musicians, it's a chance to network and experiment with other willing musicians. For emerging artists, it's a chance to test the skills you have, and maybe pick up some new ones in the process!

These sessions will be available OnDemand from Sunday 23rd September. Teaser vids are currently online via our YouTube Channel!



Calling all artists, creatives and event managers! We're on the hunt for more arts-based events to cover as part of our Live from the Living Room initiative!

Following on from the success that was Jeff Carr's Jam Night, we have a few more events to cover that demonstrate the creativity and talent in our city, but we also want the community to tell us what we should celebrate and document!

So, do you have a dance, drama/music performance, visual art exhibition that you could walk and talk us through (maybe live from your own studio/creative space) or other mixed media presentation/performance that you've created/developed that you'd like to share?
Are you part of a regular gathering of creatives with a performance component?
Are you taking art or performance on the road?
Are you experimenting with a new artistic endeavour? Perhaps celebrating a long running event, gathering or space?

Get in touch with MPR and let's ensure as many people know what you are doing as possible!
