The Arts Centre Heritage Restoration – An Exhibition Designer’s Story

Christchurch Heritage Festival 2022


Thursday 13 October

Time

6.00PM – 7.00PM

Venue: Pūmanawa Exhibition Space

FREE EVENT

Hear from an Arts Centre designer currently developing a new permanent exhibition about the heritage restoration of The Arts Centre.

Original heritage stone, as well as other 'found' heritage items, are being collected and shaped into a large exhibition to tell our story.

Find out what stories the designer is weaving together, where he is sourcing the imagery and artwork, how he is designing the flow of the exhibition, and how he will make it appeal to all ages. 

The event will take place in the area under development for this permanent exhibition, and will have large heritage Oamaru stone blocks and other items recovered from the earthquake rubble, from the 1830s and beyond, each of which have a hidden story to tell.

Door entry will be available on the night for non-ticket holders, but you will be asked to sign in.

This event is supported by the Christchurch City Council Heritage Festival Community Grant.
