Cultural Fests in Wellington

written on Saturday, October 23, 2010 at 3:48am

Wellington is an artsy city. All around the year, there are arts festival, cultural events, performances organised, and being the capital City, Wellington has the advantage of Embassies and High Commissions based here. Recently, the Embassy of Brazil launched the Brazilian Festival, with The Ambassador launching it with a musical performance by musicians from Brazil, performed at the Wellington City Hall, followed by a series of Brazilian events the entire week. The Italian Fest was launched with an Italian food fair, and a series of Italian movies. I went to one movie " The wind blows around"yesterday with my university colleagues, and we enjoyed the movie, though by comparison, Yasmeen Ahmad's movies are way better! I am positive our Malaysian High Commission can organise one Malaysian Fest par excellent, with support from Malaysia's Tourism Ministry and Malaysia's corporate sector, as well as the Malaysian coommunities in New Zealand. The Malaysian students here are already making headways in introducing Malaysia to their colleagues, especially using Malaysian food as the major "channel".
