Street Wisdom: An audio journey of buskers, poets and streeties from Auckland City Centre streets.

 

In November 2016, we took a Zoom recorder onto Auckland streets and recorded interviews with buskers, workers, poets and streeties to give us their perspective of living in the city. The completed audio journey has been produced for buskers to sell on the street during 2017. 

There are many people in our city centre who have experiences of living in Auckland city (whether being in apartments and other dwellings, to living on the street or in temporary situations) and have important perspectives to share about the current state of the city and what could be done to improve the sense of community there. Many of these people don't currently have a voice – but they do have important stories to tell and perspectives to offer. In some instances these people need the opportunity to express themselves, in order that we can attain a deeper understanding of their lives and the issues that concern them. In some instances they are isolated, or have mental health issues that we can find a fuller understanding of, by allowing them a forum to speak. We wanted to record and learn from their stories, and compile them into a cd format for distribution. And we have - welcome to "Street Wisdom Vol 1"!

NOW WE WANT TO RECORD AND RELEASE VOL 2!!!



Street Wisdom gives something tangible that benefits city centre people. We are promoting people who work on the street, giving them a lift and giving them something to sell while they do their trade. It’s a bit of history to be recorded and a recognition of these workers as important part of the city. Street Wisdom is part of wider programme, providing another method by doing tangible things with people and helping through connections. Street Wisdom is another way of engaging with a social justice issue and working with real people rather than this whole great thing called “homelessness” – challenging that current social deficit.
