We The Collateral
The prophetic People's Oracle is coming to town! Give & get free life lessons from your neighbour through this interactive installation made out of olden day junk spewing the community’s collective wisdoms.
The Oracle is calling residents from all corners of Wellington and beyond to share their life lessons. What’s your greatest insight? Perhaps: Always water your house plants? Never give up trying? Eat chocolate at least once a day? Be bold? The People's Oracle's assistant will be collecting life wisdoms on Thursday 15 February on Cuba Street (roaming between Dixon and Vivian) from 12-2pm. Come see her and share you life lessons so they can be fed into the Oracle on Saturday 17 February, corner of Dixon-Cuba.
Once all Life Lessons have been collected, The People’s Oracle will be up and running. Do you have any pressing life questions that need answering urgently? Ask the The People’s Oracle your curly life questions and listen to it dishing out insightful wisdom as shared by your community.
This interactive installation is created by Katja Starke from WE THE COLLATERAL. In her participatory mahi, Katja combines the whimsical with engaging audiences around what is meaningful to them.
The People’s Oracle was originally supported by the Hawkes Bay Arts Festival where it premiered in October ’23.
