The New World shopping mall is a four storey former shopping mall in Bang Lamphu, Bangkok. After a fire it closed down in 1999 and not having a roof, the basement floor remains under several feet of water year round. At some point in the early 2000′s neighbours began introducing a small population of exotic Koi and Catfish species apparently to control the spread of mosquitoes breeding in the stagnant water. The small group of fish began to thrive and the result is now a self-sustained population.
For various reasons, Bass Coast Festival is banning feathered war bonnets, or anything resembling them, onsite. Our security team will be enforcing this policy.
We understand why people are attracted to war bonnets. They have a magnificent aesthetic. But their spiritual, cultural and aesthetic significance cannot be separated.
Bass Coast Festival takes place on indigenous land and we respect the dignity of aboriginal people. We have consulted with aboriginal people in British Columbia on this issue and we feel our policy aligns with their views and wishes regarding the subject. Their opinion is what matters to us.
