Band and Deliver

Band and Deliver is an environment for young musicians & bands to look, listen, and learn. It opens the doors to whatever they want their musical journey to be. An exciting project returning to the Jam Factory this year with the mission to enable young people a hands on experience in live gig planning and performance in a nurtured environment steeped in collaboration.


Community Christmas Trees

Alongside the Tauranga City Council, The Incubator is bringing together our local community to participate and celebrate creativity whilst showcasing their organisations/community groups. 


Merging artists exchange

Pablo Riaz, a resident artist originally from Bolivia, wanted to set up a mentorship programme for rangatahi to give them the opportunity to be guided through their artistic journey.


The Secret Keeper

An exhibition of sculpted works and photographic images that details the story of Catherine Daniels’ childhood trauma and abuse that she kept secret for years. 

**Trigger Warning/ Content Warning** Confronting artwork and sculptures.


Tauranga Fringe 2022

A one-day spectacular, full of strange creativity, alternative art practices, the bizarre, the beautiful, the disruptive, the extreme, the provocative, and above all stimulating sensationalism.



​The Incubator Creative Hub & our team at Okorore Ngā Toi Māori are committed to bringing a diverse array of Toi Māori Arts events to the Tauranga Moana Community. 


This is Us – He Waka Eke Noa

Tauranga is a city made up of a diverse cultural communities. To celebrate and recognise these communities Rotary Sunrise, in collaboration with The Incubator, created ‘This is Us – he waka eke noa’  using art as a universal language that can help bring people together. 'This is Us - he waka eke noa' was launched in June 2020, during Matariki. 


Mānawatia Takatāpui/Defending Plurality : Cross Together

A collaborative street painting by Paul Darragh and Shannon Novak. Placed in a prominent position in front of The Incubator Creative Hub’s main gallery, the work boldly asserts the vibrancy of the LGBTQI+ community within the Historical Village.

Grim Tales

13 Survivors of domestic violence, 13 local Artists, and 13 Writers each formed a trio to create folk-lore style illustrated experiences.

The stories are gritty, powerful, and real.



The Illuminarti project infiltrated the Village to ‘Illuminate’ spaces on a day where a cabal of artists and audience became one. 

An antithesis to the mind-numbing negative conspiracy theories, politics, and mass hysteria.


Because, in the seemingly dark times, we need illumination through the arts!


Hillier Centre Revitalisation

We were commissioned by the Hillier Centre, a non-profitable organisation/community centre in Arataki, to engage a series of local artists to create bright vibrant works that would grace the tired and worn out corridors and foyer of this well utalised old building.


Tauranga Sexual Health Clinic Art Bomb.

We used art as a language to break down barriers about the stigma of sexual health issues. Taking a sterile and hospital-like space, we used graffiti and street art styled murals to communicate important, emotional, and sexual health messages through interactive and informative art installation.


Do you have a project you would like to discuss with our team?
