The Creative NZ donation for promoting unemployment
David Farrar grumps about Creative NZ giving Tao Wells $3500.
Everybody has been an art critic this week with well known philistine and book burner Roger Douglas attacking Wellington Artist Tao Wells for being paid $3500 by Creative NZ to market unemployment as a viable lifestyle as an installment art project. Everybody’s favourite ACT Party Zombie spat, ‘why even have Creative NZ, Roger hungry for brains. Brains”. That was a direct quote.
Speaking on behalf of the Minister for Social Development, Crusher Collins claimed Tao Wells should work harder on his CV and he wouldn’t be unemployed. Crusher had to make the statement instead of Paula Bennett because Paula is on an all expenses paid, 6 week trip to America where she will be getting updates to her CV for free. Tao Wells should forget about measly $3500 grants from Creative NZ, if he wants the real money he should pretend to be Minister for Social Development,
