People's Choice Penguin: Christchurch art trail needs your vote

Jake Kenny Reporter from Community News

They might be black and white in the wild but a waddle of colourful penguins will be coming to Christchurch this summer – and you can help choose the final line-up.

The Pop Up Penguin project will see 115 specially designed sculptures located across the city from November.

The Wild in Art trail will include penguins painted by 50 established and up and coming artists and they will be in place for nine weeks, giving locals and visitors the chance to see them all.

Among the artists taking part is Indonesian artist Zulfirman Syah who survived the March 15 mosque attacks.

Stuff is inviting you to help commission one of the sculptures by voting for your favourite from five design finalists. Voting can be done here from midday on Monday until midday on Sunday, September 27.

Why 2021 will be the year of the long weekend

The Team Reporter from Stuff

Hey neighbours,

Good news – 2021 is set to be the year of the long weekend.

Five out of 10 public holidays will be Mondayised (or Tuesdayised in one case) next year, which means if you work a standard Monday to Friday week, you can look forward to some extended breaks.

In fact, once you’ve tacked on the weekends, you’ll end up getting a whopping 25 days off out of those 10 stat days, plus your region’s anniversary day.

To find out how to get the most out of your annual leave next year, click here.
