About the project
RE:TRACE is a project celebrating the heritage of Auckland neighbourhoods through historical and contemporary photography.
This year, the neighbourhoods involved are Avondale, Northcote, Manukau, Takapuna, Onehunga, Panmure, and the Auckland Waterfront.
We're welcoming locals to reflect and share the heritage of their area through their own personal photo archives.
Selected images will be publicly displayed, with credit, in each neighbourhood as part of the upcoming Heritage Festival. A contemporary photo essay of each neighbourhood will also be exhibited alongside the historical images, showing the past and the present side by side.
Phase One - Call out for images
Monday 20 August - Sunday 23 September 2018:
Phase Two - Call out for local artists
Monday 20 August - Sunday 2 September 2018:
We will be looking for one photographer for each neighbourhood to create a photo essay, reflecting on and celebrating the changes in the social, cultural and infrastructural identity of their neighbourhood. The artist must have a connection to the neighbourhood. If you are interested, or know someone who might be interested, please get in touch.
Phase Three - Heritage Festival & Artweek Auckland
Saturday 29 September to Sunday 14 October 2018:
