PlantLab is opening on the 22nd of September in Whangarei, NZ. It's part installation, part creative innovation hub and part post-COVID CBD regeneration project (located in a formerly empty shop in a CBD mall).
PlantLab celebrates all things plant at the intersection of science, creativity, community development and technology.
Cross-disciplinary creatives from Te Tai Tokerau (Northland, NZ) have been working together online for almost a year and the lab brings them together to engage with the public and collaborate in person - while activating the energy of the location.
Demos, talks and workshops are taking place in person and online to promote transdisciplinary and inter-arts practice and promote the region as a growing centre for artistic innovation.
