The use of the steps had changed from hosting huge civic events to ones that are more community-oriented. It s like a social tapestry and you can see how things have changed. The last Royal visit there was Prince Andrew and all he did was kind of run down the steps, whereas when the Queen came in 54 it was just huge. I think the scale of things have changed. There are a lot more community events held there and the steps are where people go to protest. Meet You At The Church Steps is supported by the Nelson Mail, the Nelson Provincial Museum, the Cawthron Trust, Canterbury Community Trust and City of Nelson Civic Trust, and is designed by Karen Price of Contexo. It features images and stories from the museum and the Nelson Mail/Nelson Evening Mail, as well as postcards from two private collectors, Ken Wright and Rob Packer. It is available from Nelson Provincial Museum, Page and Blackmore and other selected bookstores. THE BUZZ It's just three weeks until the fabulous Nelson Arts Festival brings a 17-day celebration of creativity, performance, ideas and fun to the region. Today The Leader asks keen festival followers for their must-go tips. Grant Smithies I m going to go to The Phoenix Foundation. I m intrigued to see what they make of their new quite prog rockie double album they ve just put out -- their fifth album. I was intrigued by Die Roten Punkte. I m going to Shogun Orchestra as well, who I have seen do their thing in the past. A kind of mix of Afro Caribbean, south American and Ethopian music -- Afro-funk action. I think that s at Neudorf. They play a bunch around Wel- lington -- and are a Wellington conglomeration of musicians from different bands. I might go to Ahori Buzz because Aaron Tokona is a great guitarist and front man and really unpredict- able. It could go either way. Those are the main things and various people tell me Squid Boy is worth a look as well. Peter Rigg (co-owner Page and Blackmore) I m going to all the Page and Blackmore Readers and Writers events of course. I m going to see the show about that Island guy and the pakeha guy growing up together -- Niu Sila (A play about cross-cultural friendship written by Oscar Kightley and Dave Armstrong). As a young- ster I grew up in Otara so that kind of thing I find interesting. I m also going to see The Pianist -- that looks good -- and I m debating taking my seven-year- old grand-daughter to see Duck, Death The Tulip. That s based on a children s book published by Gecko here in Wellington. The Thinking Brunches are always very good, there are two this year. We have our first international author, Graeme Simsion, who wrote the Rosie Project. Jacquetta Bell Since I put the Page & Black- more Readers and Writers pro- gramme together I m pretty excited about hearing from novelist Lloyd Jones and pho- tographer Marti Friedlander, who have both just published memoirs; and the two Thinking Brunches -- one on the arts and one on the environment -- will also be a buzz. I can t wait to see the circus show Knee Deep -- it s had such great reviews, and another circus-comedy, The Pianist, which is from Finland, also looks like a great show. I ve just joined a choir that s entering the Masked Parade, so walking rather than watching willbeabigchangeforme--be assured I m planning to be unrecognisable. Esme Palliser The Words and Music of Jacques Brel, Pecha Kucha, Die Roten Punkte ... and we are going to Neudorf to see the Shogun Orchestra. We also going to see poet Bill Manhire [Poetry in the Vineyard] at Neudorf and we are taking the grandchildren to see Katie de Goldi. This festival feeds us, we need it.
