Event description
Women Together in Construction - Dinner & Social

About this event

Women in Roofing and the Canterbury NAWIC Group are combining forces to bring you a night of good food, great company and an inspiring guest speaker.

Speaker - Olivia Spencer-Bower

Visualise yourself in the future, standing in a street, new buildings all around you. Do you remember what used to be here? Or have you taken for granted the urban environment that surrounds you. Maybe you’ll start to wonder what this space looked like before this building was here? What did it look like mid-project? Who were the people that built it?

Award winning photographer Olivia Spencer-Bower, founder of Project Story, captures images that answers all of these questions. Inspired by the iconic 1930’s New York construction photographs, Olivia focuses her creative eye on construction of the built environment. Her photography aims to do more than showcase the physical progress of construction. It seeks to document the human qualities to show that these projects don't just happen or appear. The images capture what is unseen and sometimes forgotten. The images are part of a community's past, present and future. They are timeless, and maybe one day even iconic.

Her published photo book Christchurch Town Hall: A Conservation Story recently won the Supreme award at the 2021 Pride in Print Awards. 

Alongside her work, Olivia is a Canoe Polo World Champion, winner of the Coast to Coast 2 day, 5x champion of the Classic River Race, competed in some of the worlds most gruelling adventure races Godzone (NZ) and Primal Quest (Canada) and most recently become a Mum.
