The third in a series of breakfast sessions organised by Taonga Tauranga will feature Clayton McGregor and Celeste Skachill, two young, talented designers who have worked on some of New Zealand's most popular museum exhibitions.
Clayton and Celeste are both originally from Tauranga and are thrilled to be returning to the city to share their experiences of working on some of Te Papa's most successful exhibitions.
“Through their presentation they will show how they used co-creation to actively involve the people they were designing for, to create some of Te Papa's most loved museum experiences,” says Taonga Tauranga convenor Peter McKinley.
“Both were heavily involved in the development of the Gallipoli exhibition at Te Papa, Clayton has 20 years of museum, gallery, exhibit and visitor design experience in New Zealand and internationally. Celeste is a rising star now operating her own highly successful design business.
“Their story is a great example of how the Tauranga museum could evolve,” says Peter.
Taonga Tauranga is a voluntary group of Tauranga residents supporting the museum project by encouraging public discussion.
