By COLIN WILLIAMS Expressions Whirinaki . . . Upper Hutt's Expressions Arts and Entertainment Centre has a new name. Fresh signage, with the addition of Whirinaki in lower case under- neath the main name has been put in place at the venue's land- mark entrance on Fergusson Dr. The addition to the name, and a number of other changes planned for the eight-year-old venue, fol- low a review carried out by the Expressions Trust. The new Whirinaki title was the result of an invitation by the trust to Orongomai Marae to contribute an addition to the Expressions name, director Stephanie Cottrill says. It was offered by Orongomai Marae and enthusiastically received by the trust,'' she says. The use of Whirinaki provides a link between the centre and the upper valley's founding iwi. It is significant to the area and translates as a place of trust, a dependable forum for the arts to be presented and exhibited,'' Ms Cottrill says. Orongomai kaumatua Tamati Kawai conducted a blessing for the new name at the Expressions annual public meeting in June where it was previewed. The venue's additional name has been incorporated into a refreshed logo which was also shown for a first time at the public meeting. Most people simply call us Expressions' so we've simplified the logo and moved to more trad- itional arts colours with the red and the orange that reflect the vibrant personality of the centre,'' Ms Cottrill says. As part of the venue's review, other opportunities were explored with the aim of encouraging a wider and bigger range of audiences. Results of this include a more business-friendly cafe and a new community art display space in the Rotary Foyer, Ms Cottrill says. And, of course, we are rolling out the new brand this month, starting with the front of the building sign, in place now and, in a bit of good timing, it was due for replacement this year anyway,'' Ms Cottrill says. After match entertainment: Six Chairs Missing will perform in the Upper Hutt Cossie Club sports bar from 10pm till 1am on Saturday night after the All Blacks-France test.
