The banner will soar over Cuba Street and the general city centre area for approximately 30 minutes.

Kumutoto Stream

Imagine Woodward Street, long ago before cement took over The Terrace. Artist Kedron Parker entices pedestrians to imagine the area in its natural state before urban development. A soundscape of bubbling water and native birdlife fills the Woodward Street pedestrian tunnel, evoking an experience of walking where the stream once ran. 

Installed seamlessly in the tunnel, the soundscape ran for an initially-planned 5 week period from February 2014, was continued due to overwhelmingly positive feedback, and is now a permanent installation of the city. 

When: Ongoing.
