Hawke’s Bay is blessed with creative enterprise.

Here are three examples, as reported in BayBuzz Digest

Creative Hawke’s Bay Invitational 2010 — opening Saturday the 10th at the Hastings City Art Gallery. Roy Dunningham has reviewed the exhibition for BayBuzz, and calls it “one of the most consistent in quality I can recall.” With the work of over thirty HB-linked artists on display, Roy says Creative HB has “got the formula right.”

Film Hawke’s Bay — a new initiative, seeded by Venture Hawke’s Bay to promote the Bay as a premier location for film and television productions. Three local pros in the field — Tessa Tylee, Mirabel Brook and Gilly Lawrence — have gotten Film HB off the ground. They will woo productions into the region, and facilitate their productions once here. Productions bring direct spending in … and communicate our HB brand out. Read Cameras Rolling here.

HB Digital Archive — spearheaded by The Community Foundation HB. this project seeks to compile at the Stoneycroft homestead a state-of-the-art digital archive of HB’s history, as represented by the personal letters, photographs, and films many HB families have stashed away in their personal libraries (that is, shoeboxes!). James Morgan describes the project and the support required from the community.

Much creative effort to be proud of here.
