[pima.nius] Invitation to Elephant in the Garden of Gethsemane

12:17 PM |





Phoenix Performing Arts with support from Leadership New Zealand and Vodafone Foundation would like to warmly invite you to the development season of Elephant in the Garden of Gethsemane a play created and directed by Jay Junior Williams of Phoenix Performing Arts. 

This is an opportunity for you to support Jay and Phoenix in their journey to develop this important work commenting on issues facing many young New Zealanders today.

There are two night in which you not only get the opportunity to see the show but also get to contribute both to Phoenix and Leadership NZ.

The Monday night show is presented in conjunction with the Vodafone NZ Foundation which Jay was a recipient of their "World of Difference" award 2013.

The Tuesday night show is presented in conjunction with Leadership NZ which Jay was a participant in their 2013 Leadership programme.

Both the Vodafone Foundation and Leadership NZ have shown real belief and commitment to Jay and this project looking to contribute to NZ society through the arts.

These special fund-raising nights will contribute to Phoenix Performing Arts ability to further their important work with youth in West Auckland and to put on a full-season of this work in 2014.

The Tuesday night show will also contribute to LeadershipNZ's scholarship fund. Jay wants to give-back and enable other leaders from the arts and community sectors to have the opportunity to experience the LeadershipNZ programme all monies from ticket sales will go to the LNZ scholarship fund. 

Vodafone NZ will also be in support matching dollar for dollar and proceeds going directly to help Phoenix – double bang for your buck.

The issues covered in the play are very topical in the news but sadly a daily reality for many youth. Jay and Phoenix have devised a play which offers a view of this reality with pathways in which to transcend these issues – a bullying culture, loss of identity, loss of self-worth, being lost in an untrusted system, depression, mental illness, and contemplations of ending it all.

Young Maui Filemu born into a confusing 21st century world asks, "How do I fit?"  His quest takes him on a journey through mental illnessand betrayal. After suffering hardships and loss, in the end he finds himself becoming proud of his individuality. Maui's journey is for all of us who want to be free to be ourselves. This powerful contemporary ugly duckling story, grown out of West Auckland, layered with Maori and Pacific urban influences and performed by a talented cast of young actors, dancers and musicians, is a poetic and operatic drama of transcendence.

Please go to the Q-Theatre website in order to purchase tickets in support of this wonderful cause.

[pima.nius] MR: A New Play Tackles Youth Issues Headon

5:56 PM |

Media Release

A New Play Tackles Youth Issues Head-On

Elephant in the Garden of Gethsemane – a story of courage and unspoken truth

By Jay Junior Williams

 

Facing up to the issues of youth bullying and the resultant effects within communities, especially those in the West Auckland area is a task that Jay Junior Williams, the creator of 'Elephant in the Garden of Gethsemane' has taken by the horns.

 

With a cast of talented young West Aucklanders, Williams fuses Maori and Pacific motifs with gritty hard-hitting realities of youth living real daily lives – somewhere between lost and found. It is an ugly duckling story described as a poetic and operatic drama of transcendence.

 

"The transcendence we're talking about is that of self-worth and the freedom to be yourself," explains Williams.

 

The play touching on issues of bullying, depression and suicide have all been issues big in the news of the day re: Roast Busters and others. But, Williams says, these are not new issues and he's been working with them since 2007 when he began Phoenix NZYP (New Zealand Young Performers).

 

"Contrast to the Roast Busters, we've got a group of young men doing incredibly positive things. But, what these guys have done is highlight the issues we've been working with all along. Bullying today has changed and it's time communities and especially schools started recognising that."

 

Elephant in the Garden of Gethsemane examines some of these issues, which Williams is passionate about. He goes on,

 

"You know it's about responsibility; of the bystander, the community, the schools all to feel a certain level of responsibility towards each other. If we had more of this, then intervention and reaction would be so much more meaningful. What we're about [Phoenix] is being proactive and tackling the problems in a real multi-dimensional way, which is what our communities and schools should also be doing."

 

As a secondary school teacher, Williams explains that all too many times bullying would go unnoticed until it was too late – especially cyber bullying which is almost invisible except to those involved.

 

"This is the worst thing about it. We haven't yet learnt to identify it as something as real as getting punched in the face. But, it can be much worse than just a physical act. This is part of the reason I wanted to do the play, to bring awareness to the power of words and the humiliation this can wield over others, especially in an online context."

 

Williams says that the recent spate of news items about these issues serve to highlight the gap in societies responsibilities to teach emotional literacy and care particularly through our schooling system.

 

"Phoenix as an organisation is robust and has provided opportunities for hundreds of young people to transition and transform through accessible forums and empathetic encounters. These are not always accessible in the schooling system and so we find that we are catching those who leak through the cracks."

 

Elephant in the Garden of Gethsemane examines the issues in a non-traditional narrative. It points to a betrayal of the system, as in the Garden of Gethsemane, whereby the elephant standing in this garden is covered in a shroud of secrecy and ignored.

 

"We're using a non-traditional narrative because what people don't understand is that these issues have evolved and yet we are still using old mechanisms. We're trying to make it accessible and also to be able to bring out the discussion that needs to be had around these issues. It's not about laying blame, as some have been doing, it's about finding solutions and forums in which young people may be free to share."

 

Although the Elephant in the Garden of Gethsemane ends in a positive, as with the story of the ugly duckling, this doesn't always happen in real life. Williams points to the fact that for a real change to happen over the long-term to stop bullying, violence and suicide the community has to stand-up attack it in a multi-dimensional way and get support from government dollar for dollar. Williams concludes,

 

"I don't have all the answers but I do know that at least my organisation has been and will continue to be part of the answer. I'd like to see community, schools and individuals really find solutions that connect and share through a focus on wellbeing. We're helping out with providing art as a mechanism for change and we hope that others may see some worth in this."

[pima.nius] Pacific Islands Media Association: Are Maori and Pasifika Peoples Really Bros?

3:01 PM |

MEDIA RELEASE
PACIFIC ISLANDS MEDIA ASSOCIATION
THURSDAY 26 SEPTEMBER 2013

ARE MAORI AND PACIFIC PEOPLES REALLY 'BROS'?

Pasifika and Maori relations will come under the spotlight on Wednesday 6th November at the Pacific Islands Media Associations (PIMA) fundraising dinner in Auckland.

More than two hundred and fifty Pasifika and Maori media, community members and colleagues are expected to attend the event at the Manhattan Function Centre in Mt Roskill - which features keynote speaker, Hone Harawira.

PIMA Interim Chair, Will Ilolahia, says it's timely to discuss Maori and Pasifika relations "especially as New Zealand is looking at a range of matters around the Treaty of Waitangi and constitutional law."

He says Hone Harawira symbolises much of the Maori political angst which Pasifika people sympathise with but have struggled to understand. 

"Many of our people sympathise with the Maori struggle for tino rangatiratanga because we know the importance of having our own sovereignty back in the islands," says PIMA chair Will Ilolahia.  

"But when our people see Maori 'radicals' on TV talking about the injustices of Aotearoa's colonisation, we don't know where we fit into that conversation. We have our own struggles with this system here too and many don't want to wait in line for answers."

Harawira will be joined by Yolande Ah Chong, morning show host for Pacific Media Network's Radio 531 PI. The Mana Party leader will be probed for answers during a live interview in front of the audience.

"Maori and Pasifika relations is an issue often debated by Pasifika people behind closed doors," says Ah Chong.  "I'm going to have fun interviewing Mr Harawira and asking him questions from a Pasifika perspective."

Funds raised at the event will go towards PIMA's work supporting and promoting Pasifika media in NZ.

The Pacific Islands Media Association was established in 2001 as an advocacy group to encourage more Pacific people to join the media industry and support those already working in the industry.  Its current executive members are: Will Ilolahia (Chair), Adrian Stevanon (Vice Chair), Iulia Leilua (Secretary), Sandra Kailahi, Richard Pamatatau, Eleanor Ikinofo and Angelina Weir.  

Tickets for PIMA's fundraiser cost $50.00 per person or $450.00 for a table of 10.  The dinner is BYO (soft drinks only sold at the bar) and will be followed by a live band and dancing. Dress code is Pacific dress or casual smart. Doors will open at 6.30 pm for a 7.00 pm start. The Manhattan Function Centre is located at 941a Dominion Rd in Mt Roskill, Auckland, with the entrance on Jasper Ave.  Parking is available across the road.

Ends

[pima.nius] Fwd: Pacific Islands Media Association votes in Interim Executive Committee

2:39 PM |

. . .

greetings all,

great to see PIMA acknowledge the problems facing this organisation.

PIMA shares the same problem as other media associations - a lack of interest due to a perception that such organisations can be misused to represent individual agendas.

Another problem not peculiar to PIMA is a disastrous failure to keep up to date accounts and hold audits. My understanding is that this is due to mainly to the failings of one or two people. The media is known for pointing out failings of other organisations on a daily basis. Turns out we are just as bad ourselves. 

Until finances are sorted, PIMA lacks the credibility to move forward. I have had suggestions for putting PIMA onto a transparent, accountable and responsive basis for years now, but no one seems interested.

This would see PIMA move towards a project facilitator role for not just islands media here but in the islands as well. Partnerships, in other words.

Media release - 19 April 2013
PIMA votes in Interim Executive Committee

Apathy from Pacific Island media could see the end of an organisation formed to support them.

The Pacific Island Media Association (PIMA) celebrated its 10 year anniversary in 2011 but last night it barely managed a quorum for its Annual General Meeting held at the Fickling Centre, Mt Roskill.

The lack of attendance and apparent lack of interest from PI media raised major concerns on whether PIMA had had its day and if PIMA could continue to act effectively to represent all Pacific media.

Outgoing secretary Sandra Kailahi asked the committee to consider winding down the organisation if a new committee could not be formed. However attendees at the meeting agreed on an interim committee to work on PIMA's future role and remain in place until elections in October.

Newly elected Interim Chair, Will Ilolahia said he had accepted the nomination as interim Chair because as one of the founding members he was saddened after a decade of vital work and programmes like the AUT Scholarships, representation at regional Pacific Media fono that PIMA could be wound down.

"I hope as a change consultant to try and change the direction PIMA is heading for a more positive outcome."

With over 90 registered members, one of the tasks for the new Interim Chair is a proposed workshop on PIMA's future. "We will be contacting each of the 90 members for their active participation," he said.

Deputy Chair Adrian Stevanon said "There has been a call for a while for new blood to join the PIMA Executive, hence my decision to accept the Interim Vice Chair position."

The committee will undertake strategic planning sessions and potential activities as a pathway forward.

The Interim Executive committee members are:
Chair Will Ilolahia, Deputy Chair Adrian Stevanon, Secretary Iulia Leilua, Treasurer Angelina Weir-Taylor, Committee members Eleanor Ikinofo (PR), Richard Pamatatau (Radio).

Mr Ilolahia acknowledged the tremendous work of the outgoing Chairperson Iulia Leilua throughout the previous 11 year tenure. "Her representation is the key why PIMA has survived to date."
