OPEN EDUCATION AND THE WONDER OF JAPANESE GARDENS
Regrettably, Damien van Brandenburg, architect for the new Dunedin harbour-scape, has had to cancel his engagement for the May Open Education session (he will be in China, involved in designing a new university). His talk will be replaced with the showing of an exceptionally beautiful film on Japanese gardens in springtime, presented by Monty Don. It is not only full of wonderful images; it sets out to explain the cultural and religious symbolism of these gardens, with their Buddhist and Zen origins and their expression of the profound Japanese reverence for nature. Something for everyone here, so come along and enjoy a special evening in Mornington Methodist Church this Wednesday at 7.30pm (koha $5).
