Make the most of Christchurch's Spring calendar

It may be a bit chilly at the moment, but that’s not stopping us getting out and about exploring all that Christchurch’s epic Spring calendar has to offer.

October 30 marks the start of Season 2018 of SCAPE, marking 20 years since SCAPE Public Art has been revolutionising the open spaces of Ōtautahi Christchurch, boldly bringing art outside of gallery walls and into our vibrant city centre.

So grab a hot coffee and join us at the Arts Centre of Christchurch, Te Matatiki Toi Ora to celebrate the SCAPE Public Art 20th Anniversary and be prepared to expand your mind with this array of exciting public art.

  The event runs from Tuesday 30 October – Saturday 17 November and admission is free, so get along to check out the 216 temporary artworks and 14 legacy (permanent) artworks contributed to Christchurch and enjoy exploring our central city through the lens of some mind-blowing modern art.
