    Lyttelton Redux is an original project by artist Julia Holden, created to assist the Lyttelton Museum in its efforts at maintaining visibility in their community while the museum continues to operate without a physical building or exhibition space following the Christchurch earthquakes of 2011.

    In a series of 23 portraits current Lyttelton locals are recreated as notable historical and everyday figures from Lyttelton’s rich past. The portraits encompass a diverse cross-section of Lyttelton’s early communities, reflecting the town’s social history, its connection with the sea and the area’s development over time, including important Ngai Tahu representatives and early or notable sea captains, significant colonial settlers, Antarctic explorers who used Lyttelton as their main supply base and departure point, notable women and individuals representing various occupations of the ‘common man.'

     Explore Lyttelton and discover the works around the township and learn a little of Lyttelton's rich history along the way.

    Amazing. The audio aspect is the cherry on the top of this inspiring tour! Being a new resident to Lyttelton this project couldn't have come at a better time. It has helped me learn about the wonderful characters who are associated with this wonderful harbour town I am proud to call home. Well done Julia.

    I love this project and the lively and way it weaves contemporary and historical characters and stories together in both the digital and Terra Firma worlds. I am a descendant of Kate Sheppard and I never knew she was a keen cyclist as well as a great worker for women's suffrage.
