Apologies for the hassle, but due to problems with Tumblr we’ve had to change the site over to Google Sites, at THIS URL: https://sites.google.com/site/concernedcitizensexhibition/
www.concernedcitizens.co.nz will now redirect to the new site.
If everyone who is currently following this Tumblr could change over to the RSS feed on the new site that would be excellent.
Thank you very much!
These wonderful musicians will be performing at the exhibition on the afternoon of Saturday June 4th.
We currently have an enormous 55 confirmed artists, but keep watching for late additions, be sure to check the Artists Page to see examples and write ups of the artists work.

A Fundraising Exhibition to Help the Victims of the
October 15th “Anti Terrorism” Raids
When: One weekend only! 3rd – 5th June, 2011
Opening night: 4:30pm, Friday June 3rd , followed by screening of “Operation 8: Deep in the Forest” at 8pm, followed by lively discussion.
Viewing: Saturday 4th, Sunday 5th 11am – 8pm
Where: Garrett Street (opposite Glover Park, above People’s Coffee)
Why: There are very many talented people around us who make amazing art. At the same time, 18 people in New Zealand are currently being bankrupted by the cost of fighting questionable charges following the ‘Operation 8’ raids conducted around the country on October 15th, 2007. To address these concerns, more than 30 artists from around New Zealand are exhibiting their work in the hope of raising funds (and awareness) to support the victims of the raids and their families.
Many people in the community have questions about this case, and whether justice is being done. We want them to get together, experience some excellent art, and talk about what’s going on.
