Creative Humans
From beaches to town centres
4th June – 17th July 2022

You’ll be going about your daily lives in the town centres and beaches of Ōrākei when something catches your eye, enlivens your senses, fills you with surprise and delight. It brings you to a standstill, invites you to sit down and sends you on your way with a piece of poetry, a new way of seeing, a spring in your step and a fresh appreciation for Creative Humans; from beaches to town centres.

5 projects taking place in the Ōrākei Local Board area from 4th June - 17th July. Read on or find each under our Events section and pop them in your social diary.

The Creative Humans project is presented by Lightbox Projects and Funded by the Ōrākei Local Board.

The Umbrella Dancers
An insatiable Balkan-style playlist kindly creates spaces for two passers-by to engage in a beautiful, unexpected dance interlude. Rain, snow, or shine, the umbrella dancers hold semblance of the passing of strangers, the connections we make, the moments to cherish, and warm goodbyes.
Saturday 4th June 11am – 1pm on Mission Bay beach.
Creative concept: Amber Liberté. Facilitated by The Human Agency
