Serena Stevenson in partnership with Fresh Concept 

23 July - 13 August 2022

Online 3D virtual exhibition here.

Multimedia artist Serena Stevenson designs a story experience using video, photography, graphic art, interactive installation, workshops, events, online digital, and street art. Taking the audience into the never seen before intimate world of op-shopping from the hearts of the Tamaki community.

Serena Stevenson says "Preloved is designed to be both educational and entertaining. Engaging local communities in op-shop culture promotes a circular economy and lowers the ever-growing waste issue. Throwing away clothes and household items into landfill is not a good option for our environment and that's why we are promoting how much fun op-shopping can be."

This project is an ongoing conversation and has scope for far reach around Auckland, to document and curate the stories of the rest of Auckland's op-shop culture. With the aim to make op-shopping the general norm.

Serena Stevenson has over 20 years experience in advertising, marketing, story/film/video production and journalism. She is a creative entrepreneur with a passion for making a difference, uniting business and community through meaningful storytelling strategies and implementation.

Fresh Concept is a multidisciplinary creative placemaking and events agency. They work in both public and private sectors to bring a sense of community and place to a space, by facilitating the transition of spaces to places, individuals to communities, and stagnance to vibrance.
