Heroic actions of the past and present.
Throwing a lifeline is what makes the difference.
We honour Huria Matenga and whanau during the sinking of the Delaware in 1863, and those that save and help the refugees arriving by boat in Europe currently.
We remember the ghosts of those who don't make it.
Built onsite at NMIT in the run up to Light Nelson July 2016.
She sailed 5 nights around the Nelson streets as part of Light Nelson, then joined with the Lucid Dream Bike event to ride the Wellington Waterfront.
Created from cane, willow and tissue over 5 days
Comrade ship was designed to fit on a trailer that when towed by bike, would let her sail the streets.
Made by a team comprised of:
Jim Richards and Bridgette Murphy.
Thanks to the wonderful NMIT staff for such a great space to create in. So friendly and helpful, we loved our time with you.
An inspirational story that was the starting point for Comrade Ship.
A Nelson legend who risked
her life for others
