Te Auaha windows, 65 Dixon St

We are thrilled to be working with artist and writer Sarah Laing (Let Me Be Frank, Mansfield & Me), Te Auaha and Wellington City Council on a special, one-off mural project for Verb Festival. For two weeks you can come to 65 Dixon St to see and interact with Sarah Laing’s re-writable mural. The scene is a day in Pōneke some time in the near future. What are our Wellingtonians talking about? You decide!

We will soon upload an image of the mural that will be up at Te Auaha from 27 October. Look carefully then tell us what you think the words in the speech bubbles should be - what are our Wellingtonians talking about? We’ll put guidelines and suggested word lengths up here, along with where to send your ideas, in early October.

Over the festival weekend there will be times where you can come down and write up your own words on the mural and we’ll capture it for the online archive. We’ll post Talking Mural interactive times up here in early October.

Proudly supported by Wellington City Council.
