New director for Wearable Art Awards
Waipu’s Art n Tartan Wearable Art Awards 2016 are just days away, and once again the annual sell-out show will take place in Waipu's new Celtic Barn.
This year the show has a new direction team led by Alister Williams, who has had a lifetime of experience in theatre, music and teaching.
For a short time in the late 1970s and early 80s, he was Head of English at Otamatea High School and performed lead roles in a number of shows with the Otamatea Repertory Theatre.
After a move to Wellington, a move into management, and 15 years at Marlborough Boys High school, Alister’s love of theatre continued to remain an interest as he wrote and directed plays.
Alister has also played roles in the local Grand Pageant and the James McNeish play The Rocking Cave. These appearances provided opportunities for old friends to suggest that Alister and wife Susan consider returning to the North. The rest is history as they re-established connections with Otamatea Repertory Society.
Now, Alister is busy putting together themes for an exciting Art n Tartan show.
