HOCO is a project that aims to increase the feeling of connectedness in Christchurch Ōtautahi by sharing the images and short one liners or stories of the people who live here. The project is led by a team of community volunteers passionate about sharing the stories of our people honestly.

We are a group of photographers and storytellers in Christchurch who are honestly sharing the stories of our people in our community.

If you know someone whose story you think should be shared, please send a nomination email to and we’ll be in touch.
