Feedback has now closed

Early engagement on a strategy for the arts has now closed. People were able to provide feedback from 9 July 2018 to 10 September 2018. During this time we heard from over 90 individuals and groups. Feedback has helped to deliver a draft strategy that will be out for consultation in the coming weeks.


Alongside Creative New Zealand(external link), ChristchurchNZ(external link), Rata Foundation(external link) and other key supporters, we are developing a new citywide strategy for the arts that maps out the steps we’re taking.

Our goal is to create a broad, inclusive strategy that covers all forms of arts and creativity in Ōtautahi Christchurch, and makes sure the city continues to value its creative side. The end result will be an innovative and exciting city, where our creativity helps us reach our potential.

Along with our key supporters, we’re working with the arts community and education sector. It’s a collaborative process, and we want you to be involved.

Have your say...

If you were unable to come along to one of our July workshops to discuss your ideas in person, just let us know your thoughts below. We will use your ideas to help shape a draft strategy, which will then go through a formal consultation process later this year. You can read more about our process here(external link).
