10am–5pm, 27 July–6 August - Pūmanawa, Boys' High, 28 Worcester Boulevard

Join us at the Arts Centre’s new community exhibition space, Pūmanawa, for Restore – a fundraising exhibition that provides a window into the site’s remarkable restoration.

Restore features spectacular limited edition, behind-the-scenes photographs of the Arts Centre’s restoration taken by leading Christchurch photographer Johannes van Kan

All proceeds from the exhibition will go toward restoration of the Arts Centre, an independent charity held in trust for the people of Canterbury and its visitors. Restoration of more than half of the site is now complete but the remainder cannot be finished unless another $35m is fundraised.

  • WHERE: Upstairs, Boys’ High building, 28 Worcester Boulevard

  • WHEN: 27 July to 6 August, 10am–5pm

Following the opening exhibition, Pūmanawa can be hired on a weekly basis by artists, photographers and community arts groups at a cost of $300 plus GST.

Inquire about making a booking.
