The other week the Incubator held the formal opening for the People’s Gallery Toi ka rere at the Historic Village. In a repurposed and volunteer refurbished historic Tauranga building the Gallery offers the creative community an opportunity to exhibit and promote their work.
Under the voluntary management of Nicci Baxter of the Committed team of the Incubator collective, a group of volunteers oversee the Gallery during opening hours. Nicci would welcome hearing from you if you would be interested in joining the volunteer team. You can contact Nicci for more information through the Incubator at the Historic Village, 17th Avenue, Tauranga email email@example.com
ARTbop’s Lee Switzer and I took a peak into the Gallery the other week and here’s a short video and some images from our visit and the opening event I went to. Enjoy and get along to the 109 Exhibition it’s showing until the 21st December 2017.
THE 109 EXHIBITION IS OPEN BETWEEN 10am to 3.30pm Tuesday to Saturday and 8.00am to 1pm on Lions Market Sundays
AND HERE’S JUST A FEW OF THE PHOTOGRAPHS FROM THE OPENING EVENT:
And while you’re here: The Incubator Creative Hub team in conjunction with the community has created a series of locally designed, original Christmas trees and decorations. They are on the Downtown Tauranga Waterfront and are not to be missed.
Congratulations “inc” this is another inspirational project!
