Sponsor the replacement of a section of decorative stonework
Sponsor the replacement of a section of carved Oamaru stonework as part of the huge restoration project at the Arts Centre – then come and visit it the next time you are in town. The distinctive creamy decorative stonework is a major feature of the Neo Gothic buildings at the Arts Centre. Not surprisingly, the Arts Centre is currently the largest customer of Oamaru stone in the world, using over 200,000 kg in 2015!
Wherever possible the stonework is being repaired, but some sections of stonework were completely destroyed in the earthquake. Fortunately, there is a team of skilled stonemasons from around the world onsite at the Arts Centre, using the original plans and old photographs to exactly replicate the smashed sections.
Sponsor the replacement of a section of carved Oamaru stonework as a unique gift for someone special. We would also offer you a carved piece of stone to honour your donation. You can also opt to receive a free Arts Centre card, imprinted with the details of the sponsorship on the inside left side for you to send to them.
Your sponsorship will be classed as a charitable donation and a tax receipt will be provided. Please note if paying via credit card that we only accept Visa and MasterCard.
