    • Living Machines
      • 2 Sep 2007
      • Salient
      • A product of the modernism of the sixties, the social housing apartments of Wellington have recently come under the spotlight as breeding grounds for antisocial behavior, including gang violence. The idea that apartments, or “living machines” as their inventor called them, can psychologically influence behavior is not without international examples. Salient volunteer writer Duncan McKinlay investigates the relationship between architecture and behavior and finds some tenuous links.

      • Re-Orientation 2007 has been deemed a success, with the largest line-up of events to date. The week had two more headline concerts than usual, as well as the usual comedy night, plus free concerts and day-time activities - some attracting sell-out crowds.

      • John Lennon and Yoko sung a song about her, but judging from the audience attendance of activist Professor Angela Davis you’d think she was the rock star. Her audience packed out two lecture theatres, while hundreds more had to be turned away.

      • Wellington may have its homeless on the streets at night shelters and WINZ-funded lodges. But lurking beneath the rocky bays of Seatoun Beach Salient writer Dave Crampton discovered a 70-year-old man living in a cave just big enough to fit a bed and a toilet… except he doesn’t own a toilet.

    • Housing the homeless
      • 9 Jul 2007
      • Salient
      • On 30 June 2003, a well-known member of the Wellington community died. He had worked in the public service for 20 years. He had a big growth/tumor on his forehead, and in the years prior to his death spent much of his time living rough in the Town Belt. He was often seen around town carrying a bedroll in a bucket. His death made worldwide headlines. Yet despite his notoriety, not many of the 1000 at homeless man Robert Jones’ funeral could recall a conversation with him.

    • Why Uni Games is special

      • Salient
      • First of all I would like to thank each competitor, team manager, team official, and team supporter for their dedication and contribution to Team Vic’s shield defence at Uni Games ‘07. I hold strong admiration to each of you who made sacrifices to support your team mates. As you may or may not be aware, Team Vic was unsuccessful in creating history in defending the Uni Games Shield in Canterbury. However we made a damn good fist of it.

      • <figure data-test="image-block-v2-outer-wrapper" class=" sqs-block-image-figure image-block-outer-wrapper image-block-v2 design-layout-poster combination-animation-none individual-animation-none individual-text-animation-none image-position-left " data-scrolled > On Sunday 18 October, we launched our Hataitai Past 2021 Calendar. What a journey it has been! The process of creating the calendar started in March during Covid-19 Lockdown - not that we were bored! The idea came about as we felt that fundraising events were not going to happen for quite some time.  Quotes and samples from national printers were sourced, then onto the mammoth task of selecting photographs by committee approval.  So many great photos to choose from. We spent hours pouring over wonderful pieces of our community’s history. What a business!  We decided that our very own local Smith Print was the best designer and printer to use for the job.  What an amazing product they’ve delivered for us. The Wellington Libraries Recollect collection, and the Alexander Turnbull Library had wonderful photographs available - some at a small fee. Their librarians were very helpful. As was Russell Jenkins of the Wellington Tramway Museum.  What a wonderful Tram photograph they sourced for our cover page..  As Hataitai has a unique heritage, we have ensured that photos were included of the old Patent Slip, the Tram Tunnel and the Flying Boat, as well as a variety of others. You may not have known that there was a commercial Flying Boat service operating in Evans Bay from 1938 to 1954, where passengers boarded a small passenger terminal near Hataitai’s current changing rooms and flew to Sydney. The proceeds are going towards the Hataitai Community House. As with many small and nonprofit businesses, our income has been greatly impacted by Covid 19. If we achieve high sales we hope to also support the redevelopment of the Hataitai Centre (previously known as the Bowling Club)  We are now thrilled to be able to launch this wonderful calendar. It will make an excellent Christmas present for your family, at only $20 each, or 3 for $50. The calendar is sponsored by many local businesses and for that we are very grateful. We could not have done it without you. To order, please email hataitaievents@gmail.com, or you can pop into one of our stockists - Hataitai Pharmacy, Coolsville, Waitoa Social Club and the Hataitai Community House, at 112 Waipapa Road.  We will also be selling the calendar at our up and coming community markets.  Keep an eye on our Latest News for details.
