What on Earth Are You Wearing?
(Pōneke / Wellington)
A voyage of discovery for all wearers of clothing. Join us on a playful, immersive, interactive guided walk, as we open the doors of possibilities, to the probable, preferable and unexpected, past, present, and future. Blurring the lines between our reality, and the reality of others, this walk will coax us beyond the confines of our own experience and imagination. Together we will unpick the threads of the many stories of the stuff we often take for granted, that we put on our body, from varied perspectives, weaving together different stories and opening alternative paths. Sashay this way!
