Street Talk Tape Art

The All Right? Wellbeing Campaign and Healthy Christchurch teamed up with two amazing international NZ artists to engage with the public and Deaf and Disabilities communities.

The plan was for Tape Art to go up on the wall of the Community and Public Health building at 310 Manchester Street by the artists and community exploring what makes them feel more than All Right.

The event went for four days from 6th to 9th March 2014. Workshops were held over the Thursday and Friday including students from St Mary’s Primary School. A large temporary public mural was created over the weekend supported by wellbeing activities.

The response and engagement with the communities and public was fantastic with most participants staying for 4 hours! It was the first time that the artists had no time to do some of their own work and they’ve been running workshops over the world for some years.
