What happens when artists and architects take-over a city laneway and fill it with art, culture and personality?
The first part of a three day installation, the CBD laneway on Grey Street next to Paper Plus will be transformed into a public space by local architects and artists, following a Bay wide competition to come up with ways to utilise the space creatively.
Grab lunch from one of our food trucks while experiencing art installations, music, community art wall and street performers. Experience what is possible in our city – you never know, one day, the whole network of CBD laneways might follow suit.
This event is part of Groundswell Festival of Innovation. The event is sponsored by Tauranga City Council and is a collaboration between Creative BOP and the Institute of Architects.
Becca and RM Architecture were the winners of the Tauranga laneway design competition which was organised by the New Zealand Institute of Architects Waikato/Bay of Plenty Branch and Tauranga Groundswell Festival of Innovation. Creative Bay Of Plenty has been facilitating the connection and coordination of the architects and local creatives with the aim of bringing the laneway alive.
