What is economic-wellbeing? Wealth? Survival? Social status? Enough money to pursue your dreams? Join Massive Central and South Ensembles on a journey of storytelling and performance. The Museum’s galleries, manuscripts and pictorial collections from early feminist photographers all acted as source material for the Massive Theatre Company’s exploration of economic wellbeing. Working with Massive’s tutors and artistic director Sam Scott, the youth from the Central and South Ensembles have used devised theatre techniques to activate the collections and create performances featuring human and non-human characters.

What is Urbanlife?
Urbanlife is a chance to hear Auckland youth express their vision for the city’s future. Six groups of rangatahi (15-24yrs) from across the city are tackling the big issues: employment, housing, culture, education, economic well-being and environment.

Working with artist mentors and drawing inspiration from Auckland Museum's collections the groups are creating responses through screen-printing, soundscapes, spoken word poetry, photography, devised theatre and graff art.

Urbanlife runs Saturday 3 November - Sunday 2 December.

Location: Meet in the Grand Foyer
