ABOUT THE EXHIBITION
As part of the 2019 Trustpower Photographic Exhibition we are bringing together five winning images from the 2019 Hitachi City Art Exhibition, a profile of our sister city relationship, a digital display of hundreds of this year’s entries from the Trustpower Photographic Exhibition and information storyboards profiling ‘The power of an image – a history of photojournalism.’
This exhibition also celebrates our sister city relationship with Hitachi, Japan. Last year the Trustpower Photographic Exhibition winners were featured in Hitachi City and we are reciprocating in 2019 by displaying their images in our city.
The exhibition is free to the public and is a partnership exhibition between Downtown Tauranga, Our Place, Multicultural Tauranga, Tauranga City Council, Tuskany Agency, Creative Bay of Plenty, Education Tauranga and Sun Media. It will be officially opened by Mayor Greg Brownless on Monday April 15th at 9.30am.

ABOUT OUR SISTER CITY RELATIONSHIP WITH HITACHI
Tauranga’s Sister City relationship was created to promote goodwill and mutual understanding between the citizens of each nation and contribute to the peace of the world. Hitachi became a Sister City of Tauranga more than 30 years ago. The ongoing friendship between the two city councils has resulted in 3 yearly exchanges and continuing cultural and learning opportunities.
