The Travelling Gnome

About "Amélie of Palmy"
A community project for lovers and yet-to-be lovers of the French hit film Amélie (2001). A series of creative events connecting aspects of the film to Palmerston North will lead us to a birthday celebration on Sat 1 June. Bienvenue!

About "The travelling gnome"
Amélie popularised the travelling gnome concept (which was later Americanised by Travelocity). The "Amélie of Palmy" gnome is available for lending once a week. You will meet with an Amélie of Palmy fanatic at the 'secret' Amélie table at Barista for a briefing on the photographic challenges set for you to connect Amélie to Palmerston North. The $5 charge covers your loan of the gnome for one week. Buying a beverage on the day is optional.
