Pop Up Penguins, Christchurch 2020

Following the extremely successful Christchurch Stands Tall project in 2014-15 we were excited to be working with Presenting Partner, Harcourts to bring a second public art trail to Christchurch – Pop Up Penguins!

Specially designed for Christchurch, the sculpture was based on the newly-awarded New Zealand Bird of the Year, the Hoiho or Yellow-eyed Penguin. The Hoiho is one of the rarest penguin species in the world and is only found in New Zealand.

A feel-good campaign we can all be proud of, Pop Up Penguins brought communities together to celebrate the city through creativity and leave a lasting legacy for children’s charity, Cholmondeley Children’s Centre.

Location: Christchurch, New Zealand
Trail: 29 November 2020 – 31 January 2021
Charity: Cholmondeley Children’s Centre
