We were commissioned by Waterfront Auckland (now Panuku Development Auckland) to develop and run a series of playful engagements to help celebrate the 4th birthday of Auckland’s Wynyard Quarter.  In collaboration with the ScribbleAKL and Wild Streets communities we coordinated a series of activities to add to the vibrancy of the event.

Alongside ScribbleAKL we created:

  • Bubble stations across the gantry with a station for creating super sized bubbles at the bottom (we went through 30 litres of bubble solution!)
  • Nautical themed chalk stencils to decorate the pavement and steps down to the water’s edge
  • An “Edit My City” activity, inviting the public to make their own edits to images of Auckland that had been transformed into linework

The Wild Streets collective ran a mini street games festival, engaging both the young and old and inviting parents to play alongside their children.  We designed several new birthday-themed games alongside re-vamped versions of some favourites from the festival we helped run earlier in the year.
