Creative Patapatai Podcasts

Welcome to our Creative Patapatai podcasts, a project by Creative Bay of Plenty where we take a closer look at the people who make our region the creative wonderland that it is.

Emerging curator and art historian, and Tauranga Art Gallery regular, Ellie Smith takes us on a dive into the details of a typical day working with the visual arts, and why (in the time of Covid) she’s no longer planning anything with certainty… You can learn more about Ellie by visiting her profile on our Creative Directory.

Today, we meet Creative Bay of Plenty intern and local visual communicator, Kendra Stone. She’s shooting all the images for our Creative Patapatai project and helping us tell dozens of creative stories. Keep listening to learn why Kendra loves Te Puna Quarry, her head-banging days, and why Brazil is on her mind. You can learn more about Kendra by visiting her profile on our Creative Directory.

In the first episode of this series, we’re chatting to film-maker and visual story-teller Louis Bolton. Louis migrated to Tauranga a few years ago. Keep listening to hear Louis talk about Nelson Mandela, Queen and Pearl Jam, and barbecue. You can learn more about Louis by visiting his profile on our Creative Directory.
