Join Public Share on the closing afternoon of Social Matter for refreshments, home baking and conversation about their recent projects and plans for a future project associated with Dunedin rail. A casual social gathering that welcomes any local rail stories you may have.
Public Share (Monique Redmond, Harriet Stockman, Kelsey Stankovich, Deborah Rundle, Mark Schroder and Joe Prisk) is a New Zealand artist collective engaging in ideas of sharing and production. Combining object making and site exploration with social engagement and critique, the collective has a particular interest in workplace rituals, facilitating events that punctuate the day with pause and conviviality. Public Share actively engages with sites undergoing change and the conditions that govern workers’ everyday activities.
