   The Wrap Party for this year's NZ Outsider Art Festival took place on Saturday 26 November from 5pm till 8pm at Studio One. As was the entire festival, the party was a huge success.  Detail and photographs coming shortly.  

As well as marking the close of the Art Fair and Dream Home Project, the event will feature live music and launch of a series of EPs by young musicians from Toi Ora's Express Yourself Creative Youth Partnerships programme.

These EPs have been recorded and produced in a collaboration with Mike Naylor, a Masters student at the School of Audio Engineering. Performing and releasing their music on the night will be singer-songwriters Matt Innes, Kitty Taylor and Kushla Callinan, and local band Ripefit, comprising three Western Springs College students Will Cogswell, Vincent Canning and Isaac Hosking-Whitehead. The EPs will be available for purchase in hard copy and digital download.
