"Being relatively new to Dunedin, I have heard many impassioned recounts about events/performances/live art events that have already occurred in a myriad of spaces throughout the city. These previous events are embedded in the art and social history Dunedin continues to be renowned for. Thanks to an immense amount of hard work and risk-taking artists and cultural workers, as well as the consistent development of artist runs paces and collectives, the audience for performance art has been richly cultivated.

"Working directly in the public eye was an essential component for more than one artist in this series. When working outside the safety of the Blue Oyster, artists were increasingly vulnerable to the demands of the translation but also gave the audience more direct interface with the works. In one case, artist Mark Harvey attracted a 'guardian' where a random teenager protected him from interference allowing Harvey to complete his task." - Charlotte Parallel
