Awesome Forces is Te Papa’s most popular long-term exhibition and its success is due largely to the support of its partners, the Earthquake Commission (EQC) and GNS Science. EQC also supports the Quake Braker exhibition and a variety of events and lectures linked to earth-science.

EQC has the opportunity to communicate its key messages through the interactive experience of exhibitions and events at Te Papa, reaching a broad audience. Te Papa welcomes, on average, over 1.2 million visitors each year and approximately 63 per cent of them experience Awesome Forces and EQC’s messages.

The Te Papa relationship effectively supports EQC’s main objective - to help New Zealand homeowners mitigate against and recover from the effects of natural disasters.

EQC is also co-sponsor, with GNS Science, of the very popular Awesome Forces book, published by Te Papa Press.
