As the nights grow long and the temperatures drop, the scene is set for Christchurch's bold and dynamic new Arts Festival – a carnival of delights that ignites the heart of the city, bringing warmth and hope to the depths of winter.
This is a time for togetherness – for friends, whānau, magic and meaning. It's a chance to enjoy and indulge, while celebrating Ōtautahi's proud reputation for bold innovation and distinct, daring creativity.
Experience art, music, light, food and performance, as our extraordinary artists ‘return home’ to honour their connections to this unique place, and inspire us to explore who we are, where we have come from and our bold new path as a city of transformation and change.
From the free opening extravaganza, to shows, talks, workshops and performances, there's something for everyone... so don't miss the chance to find out what's on and get amongst it!
