As we approach a deCaDe of puTTing on pARTies we gratefully acKnOwledge everyone who is part of this wonderful collective.
At times it has taken up to 40 people to create some of the events in WoNk’s rich history of themed pARTies, including a wide variety of artists, designers, technical crew and assistants. We whole-heartedly thank each and every one them.
