Offering the space to artists, photographers, designers and other creative organisations at an affordable rate perfectly aligns with the Arts Centre’s goal of fostering arts, culture, education and creative industries in the heart of Christchurch.

Pūmanawa is located upstairs in the Boys’ High building on Worcester Boulevard, an historic building that is home to a growing number of independent, boutique retailers along with the Christchurch i-SITE Visitor Information Centre.
