For the first time in its history, this year will see the Auckland Art Fair go online. From 11am NZST on Thursday 30 April until Sunday 17 May, Artfair.co.nz will be hosting a Virtual Art Fair where you will discover more than 30 galleries from New Zealand and Australia displaying works that would have otherwise been seen at the 2020 Auckland Art Fair.
The Virtual Art Fair is in recognition of the artists who have already made special works for the Auckland Art Fair that couldn’t happen, and the galleries who have supported them in doing so.
“It comes at a time of global uncertainty, when the importance of art, community and culture are especially apparent,” their team said in a recent statement.
The Auckland Art Fair is designed to be “a celebration – as best we can – of the talent and diversity of art making by artists from our region; not only across New Zealand and Australia, but also around the wider Pacific-rim. We hope that, wherever possible, some of these artists and galleries will be supported by someone buying a work of art.”
Browse, look, enquire and consider as you get to know new galleries and artists in support of contemporary culture at a time when the artists and galleries really need it.

With Covid-19 still a very real risk, people who are unwell are told to stay home, and to keep any sickly kids home too - but what if you don't have any more sick leave owing?
Most Kiwis are entitled to five days of sick leave a year, but some - often those in lower paid jobs - get less.
New Zealand’s minimum sick leave allowance is one of the lowest in the OECD. In Australia they get 10 days, in most European countries it’s even more.
Should Kiwis be entitled to more sick leave?

We have a lovely new drink in-store at Way of Life Health Shop called Jun Tibetan Living Tea. Jun is a cousin of Kombucha, which uses honey to aid the natural fermentation process rather than sugar. It is brewed with organic white tea and Manuka honey, and is rich in organic acids, beneficial bacteria, digestive enzymes, antioxidants, and B vitamins.
* High probiotic count (honey creates a robust prebiotic
environment throughout fermentation)
* Less than 2.5% sugar
* Made with pure Tongariro spring water
* Light & sparkling
This is a delightfully refreshing drink!
