Wellistack is a stream of events taking place in Wellington City, the first one taking place at the Newtown Festival 2015. WelliStack is a construction jam in which teams of participants are invited to compete for the best structure made of plastic crates. Much like playing your favourite construction game, but with a hundred friends, and in the heart of the city. This year, it will feature the students of several wellingtonian high schools competing for the best bread crate structure on the week end preceding the Newtown Festival.

Here is how it works: The kit of parts is consisting of bread crates and cable ties. Being light and soft, this building kit is easy to ship around and set up. The assembly doesn't require any experience or qualification, and yet structures can be made sturdy and sound. Participants sign up as a team on a dedicated website prior to the event. Gathering up under the same school banner, teams of students can be of mixed ages and background. Teams register at the day of the event. The modules are unraveled and dispatched. Participants grab a pair of gloves, and start stacking. After a full week end of joyful building, the time is over, and the site is closed for the committee to assure that every structure is safe for the public.

On Newtown fair day, the WelliStack village is taken over by the public! Depending on the partnership, the village may serve many purposes, from a performance stage to a food court. Regardless of that, visitors are welcome to enjoy the creations, and vote for the best one. At the end of fair day, a people’s choice winner is determined. The winning team receives a token of gratitude, and some clapping noise. Structures are then photographed and dismantled. The kit of parts is put back in its box, until the next event.
