Next event announced: Trivia Night !

2012 Annual JETAA Trivia Night and photo exhibition
 
It's that time again!  The ever popular JETAA Trivia Night will kick off Japan Week 2012, bigger and better than before!
 
Due to growing numbers every year, we've found a fantastic venue with space for double the crowd of previous years, and we're lucky to have the famous Ken and Keith Parker (our favourite Quiz Masters) on board to host another legendary trivia event. 
 
The details are below so get your reservations in straight away! 
 
When: Saturday, 18 August.  Arrive early to be seated for a 6.30pm start.  The event will conclude at 10.30pm.
 
Where: Bleeding Heart Gallery, 166 Ann Street, Brisbane.  Just a stone's throw from Central train station.
 
Cost: $15 per person.
 
Food and drinks: Cover charge includes cold platter of light refreshments and snacks.  The gallery bar will be open all night.  Please note, the bar does not serve food so you may want to get those brain cells charged up with a meal before you arrive!
 
Trivia teams: Teams will consist of either five or six people.  Feel free to RSVP as a group, a couple or a single; if you have more than six or fewer than five, we'll even out the numbers and make sure everyone has a team.  Tables will be numbered and allocated prior to the event to assist with catering, and to get the fun started on time.
 
RSVP: Email social-coordinator@jetaaqld.org no later than close of business, Friday, 10 August 2012.  That's only a couple of weeks away so hurry!
 
Japan Week photo exhibition at Bleeding Heart Gallery
 
Our Trivia Night coincides with the start of a photo exhibition at the Bleeding Heart Gallery for Japan Week.  Trivia participants will get the first look at two fantastic displays. 
 
The first is entrants and winners from the 2011 JETAA photo competition, showcasing stunning photos taken by former JETs during their time in Japan. 
 
The main display is jointly sponsored by the Consulate-General of Japan in Brisbane, the Japan Foundation, Sydney and the Bleeding Heart Gallery.  It is called 'TOHOKU - Through the Eyes of Japanese Photographers'.  This exhibition of photos taken across several decades aims to introduce the world to the land of the Tohoku region, its people and their lifestyles. 
 
We look forward to seeing you on August 18!
