When: 26 August - 2 September
Where: Red Square, Tauranga CBD
Groundswell marks the launch of Creative Bay of Plenty's pilot project 'Creative Views'. An initiative to bring a vacant CBD storefront to life through collaboration and creativity.
Creative Bay of Plenty aims to provide a taster of what can be achieved in vacant spaces in the Tauranga CBD by adding colour and vibrancy to a once empty window.
The 'Creative Views' window features two installations during the Groundswell Festival. Otherworldly creations will be on display thanks to BOP Film, as well as the winning 2019 SociaLink 'Legacy Trust "Art With Purpose" Award Installation by local artist Maria Kausalainen sharing a powerful message about social issues in our community.
It is important to note that the beautiful building being used is available to lease. It offers expansive window frontage with a north-facing aspect which utilises natures best spotlight, "The Sun", to light up the window and store. Creative Bay of Plenty would like to say a big thank you to the owner for the opportunity to use the space.
A big thank you must also be said to those organisations and people who are supporting this initiative.
Make sure you head down to Red Square during the Groundswell Festival and see it for yourself.
