The event drew a lot of interest from passers-by, with people stopping by throughout the day to see what was going on. Together, the collection of activities created a space where people could have deep, and sometimes difficult, conversations about topics they may not otherwise have had the opportunity to discuss – and with people they may not otherwise have met.
A highlight for many was Tell-a-Phone, an interactive installation in Freyberg Square that looked like an old payphone but was actually a private booth designed to capture people’s thoughts and reflections. Another highlight was the Making Meaning workshop, where people were invited to explore belonging in a more metaphorical way using Play-Doh.
