Enter for the chance to paint your design on a Chorus cabinet!

In 2010 Chorus began a trial in Auckland to test if artwork on cabinets decreased the frequency of tagging. This proved successful.

The programme has become increasingly popular and often artists choose to depict subject matter that is meaningful to them.

 As part of The Pen 'n’ Paint Summer Exhibition we’ve decided to dedicate three cabinets in Christchurch to the expression and celebration of street art and storytelling.

  • Entries must have a literary theme. All entries submitted must be the original work of the entrant.
  • The entrant is fully responsible for painting their design.
  • Material costs (up to $150) will be covered (quotes or receipt of purchase necessary).
  • Any entrant who is under the age of 18 must obtain the prior permission of their legal parent or guardian.
  • The final decision on design and content remain with Chorus.

Download the entry form for more information [PDF, 531 KB] or pick up a copy from Tūranga Library.

Entries can be emailed to graffitiprogramme@ccc.govt.nz, posted to Graffiti Programme, PO Box 73052, Christchurch 8154 or dropped off at 180 Smith St, Linwood, Christchurch.

Entries close on 28 February 2020.
