Trees at the Meteor 2015 was a beautiful thing. Made the Waikato Times even. Around 70 trees explored boundaries of creativity and around 4000 Hamiltonians viewed and applauded the room of sensational festive light and colour. Congratulations to this year’s overall winner – The Feather is Mightier than the Sword by Emma Rossiter and Kathryn Parsons.
Trees was open 5 nights and opened at times during the day for various groups needing some of their own space – the blind, the deaf the elderly etc. That was a privilege .
Trees at the Meteor and it’s mantra -compassion not consumption – was celebrated/challenged as happy Hamiltonians making the visit got the sucker punch of making christmas memorable without the pu$h and the $hove of the manic sleigh bells and tills at the malls.
Trees At The Meteor is an art exhibition with a difference, involving participation by the greater Waikato community. Artists and creative’s offer their vision of what Christmas means to them in Tree fashion.
It is a unique experience of Christmas creativity with heaps of ‘Trees of Awesomeness’ on show! The Meteor Theatre on Victoria Street is home to 60 plus NOT BORING trees that are feast to the eyes. There is colour and beauty and smiles to be had galore! TIt’s a festive forest of what Christmas means to HAMILTON. You walk in, you look at stuff, you get to escape the stress and claws of Santa, take an awkward family photo and walk away after an hour and a half of the best entertainment for $5 on record. Epic for anyone – it’s a whole family thing!
Trees is all about the festive spirit whilst at the same time giving something back to those in need – helping to make Christmas more about ‘Compassion’ than ‘Consumption’ – by proudly donating to the Men’s Night Shelter and Women’s Refuge. Experience a Christmas night out like no other.
