As The Arts Centre site comes back to life, we're creating a hub of creative entrepreneurs in central Christchurch that is undeniably 21st Century: capacity-building, content-rich and digitally enabled. With more than two-thirds of The Arts Centre Te Matatiki Toi Ora site now re-opened to the public, the future vision for the site is becoming a reality.
Being a hub of creative entrepreneurs
There are three pillars to The Arts Centre vision:
1. Kaitiakitanga – guardianship
Hold and develop The Arts Centre as a unique and outstanding cultural centre to promote, conserve and maintain the heritage integrity of The Arts Centre.
2. Whangai – nourish and foster
Foster, promote and facilitate interest and involvement in art, culture, creativity, the creative industries, and education.
3. He Tangata – for everyone
Engage in an open way with the community and be inclusive and connected.
