Stephen Templer and Kelvin Aris have been invited to participate in Playable City 2014 - An International Conference  of street play, games and public space activation.

 

Street game creators of all persuasions are coming together this September in Bristol UK for this amazing event.

 

We're going and we want to take you with us!!

 


 

We want to share our story - learn from the best in the world and bring it all back to Wellington this summer!!

 

We are currently working around the  clock bottling up as much of this Wellington JuJu power as we can carry  to share with everyone at the Playble City. We reckon there is a tale to be told to the world about the the amazing creative spirit and sense of irreverent fun that our city embodies.

 

We are looking for financial support to help cover our travel  to the Bristol. We are also looking for champions to join us this summer  in celebrating Wellington as THE CAPITAL OF CREATIVE ADVENTURES, mischief and games big and small.

 

 

We  will be colaborating with the creators of Igfest, Bristols festival of interesting games and other international games makers to learn as much as we can and then  roll out a series of amazing events and street games this summer in Wellington.

 

We will bowl you over with a Back Yard Cricket tournament during the Cricket World Cup,  Aro Valley Valentines Day Lovers Roller Disco in the Park, the Dandy Games  and the Ridiculympics to name but a few.

 

We are coming back to set up the Aro Fun Lab this Spring  which will be HQ right here in Aro Valley for these shennaginin  this summer and beyond.

 

 

 

We want to sign up  Enthusiasts, Specialists, rule breakers and lovers of fun  for a

courageous journey to re-imagine and re-configure the streets, places and stories of our fantastic city.

 

Who we are..

 

Stephen Templer and Kelvin Aris have been collaborating on events big and small for over 10 years. It started with with an obsession with Brazilian Rhythms,

Samba and the Cuba Street Carnival Now we run games out in the public realm with the Sausage Circus Bike sound-system, Sold Gold Disco, with dance comps

, game shows, UV table tennis tournaments and giant twister to name a few.

 

We are setting up the Aro Lab as the HQ for a series of amazing games and events over this summer.

Steve is a visual artist specialising in illustration and Kelvin is an event organiser and is currently working as community coordinator in Wellington’s Aro Valley.

What makes us come alive is bringing people together to reclaim public space for fun and adventure.

 

 

 

 

We are working on some exciting new offerings for this years new Cuba festival – Cuba Dupa , Newtown Festival and the Aro Valley Fair. 

We’d would like to invite you to join us and to put yourself in the middle of this exciting game – the game we call Playing for Wellington.

Press Release: For Immediate Release Sergio Velcro Scandal

21/06/2015 at 3:56 PM

Hi Everyone. This shouldn't affect this saturdays party at Aro hall we don't know any more than we are reading in the press.

 

Sergio Velcro hit by
fresh corruption claims


The shockwaves from the corruption scandal that brought down Sepp Blatter continue to reverberate, with claims in Brussels that the selection of Games of the Aro Pentathlon demonstration event were influenced by a shipment of Fitness DVD's and Motivational Seminars on VHS that arrived seemingly "out of nowhere" on Wellington wharf according to unnamed staff .

These new allegations in Te Aro come hot on the heels of a "scandal that refuses to go away" involving an unnamed cricket executive , a high profile Wellington Roti-flour supplier and a ponzi scheme involving a town belt time share and apartment complex neither of which were built. It has come to light that Velcro has hands in many pies and has influenced wellington company pie in the sky unlimited (limited) thru his role as trainer, motivational speaker and business mentor. Pie in the sky have not answered phone calls nor email messages an un-unnamed official said yesterday "Theres a hundred people out there who invested willingly in this ponzi scheme, it's text book sergio velcro - everything sticks - he's hypnotised everyone and the money has all gone - he's a great guy tho.
