Supercut Projects Presents: 'Echoes: Tauranga Moana' Created by Storybox and Puck Murphy Curated by Ellie Smith 'Echoes: Tauranga Moana' is a special interactive heritage exhibition being held at Baycourt Community and Arts Centre X Space from May 19 – 27.

The kaupapa of Echoes: Tauranga Moana is to encourage the community to discover and learn about its past, with the interactive experience featuring hundreds of photographs of places, people, events, and objects. When viewed together, they offer a unique glimpse into the extraordinary history of Tauranga. The images have been hand-selected from three local archives - the Tauranga Heritage Collection, Tauranga City Libraries Pae Koroki and The Elms Foundation Collection. Within the exhibition, the public will be drawn towards hundreds of projected images, and a sensor will allow the audience to interact with the experience.

Visitors can also become part of the exhibition by uploading photos of themselves, friends and whanau via the hashtag #echoestgamoana. Over the seven days, Echoes: Tauranga Moana will grow as these photos are added – the community of today joining the echoes of our past.

Echoes: Tauranga Moana has been generously supported by Tauranga City Council, Creative New Zealand, Cooney Lees Morgan and Baycourt Community and Arts Centre.
