Art and music are the backbone of culture. Without these
integral cultural reflections and unifiers, there is no culture.
Nocturnal Projections and Other Small Happenings intends to enhance
the thriving arts and music culture of Dunedin, by creating a
humble sound and light group exhibition, using artists from all
over New Zealand (including Dunedin). In order to ensure maximum
benefit to the general public of this fine city and with the
support of many people and organisations, we will be exhibiting in
multiple public spaces around Dunedin city. By utilising these
spaces we will create many beneficial outcomes for artists, the
organisations involved and importantly the general public. These
benefits include dispelling some of the mystery around contemporary
art by bringing it out from behind the gallery walls and into the
public domain, it also intends to encourage people to visit

Happenings exhibition. Nocturnal Projections and Other Small
Happenings is being set up as a biennial art exhibition for Dunedin

course to have Peter Jefferies from the formative New Plymouth band

the Ground Floor of the Dunedin Public Library; the First
