We asked you about arts, culture and heritage in Christchurch. Around 2100 of you gave feedback; here's a summary of what your told us.
Overall, results are positive, with arts and culture being recognised as a very important part of life in Christchurch. Street art in particular is highly valued, helping to improve the appearance of public spaces. Events are also highly valued by respondents and are well attended in the city, with 80 percent of respondents having been to at least one of the events listed in the survey in the last two years.
Some respondents indicated that they are concerned that not all communities feel safe and welcome in Christchurch. Helping to address these concerns is the Council’s Multicultural Strategy and the Ōtautahi Christchurch Community Strategy 2021-31.
