An activation project on the Lyttelton Museum site by Sarah Amazinnia and Holly Cunningham, supported by Lyttelton Museum and Te Hapū o Ngāti Wheke, Project Lytelton, Structex, Lyttelton Engineering, Jon Mitchell from Cable Systems, The Air Force Museum of New Zealand, the site's awesome neighbours and some great Lyttelton folk. Funded through the CCC Enliven Places Project Fund and Creative Communities.
This project was designed to warm and welcome people to the Museum site and gain some excitement for the new Museum build. In June 2018 the project opened with lit installations and a projection for the Lyttelton Festival of Lights.
In September, The Miniature Gallery arrived onsite with a series of 3 exhibitions from September - December showing work from 34 artists connected to Whakaraupō Lyttelton Harbour. Each Full Moon opening celebration featured local musicians and kai from Rāpaki marae catering for around 100 people.
All work in the gallery was inspired by objects from the Lyttelton Museum Collection.
