Bringing back Elbe's Milk Bar

From Standing Room Only, 1:34 pm on 1 March 2015

An art project re-creates the notorious Elbe Milk Bar in the Hutt Valley, the behaviour of some of its teenage patrons led to moral panic which led to the damning Mazengarb Report. Sixty years on, Tim Barlow is working with students from the Rangatahi Learning Centre in Wainuiomata to bring back Elbe's Milk Bar, temporarily, as part of the Common Ground Hutt Public Art Festival. The work also contributes to their NCEA credits. Elbe's Milk Bar opens on the 3rd of March.
