The Arts Centre of Christchurch
The Arts Centre of Christchurch was once a place that would attract tourists and locals to explore the former Canterbury College and the artisan vendors that were housed within its walls. This neo-gothic building and campus was the hub for arts and culture in the city, and was where there were often markets, street performers and artists in the precinct. This was truly a bustling area of the city up until the 2011 earthquake that badly damaged a lot of the buildings. A commitment has been made to restore the Arts Centre, with the completion of the project scheduled for 2019, and likely costing hundreds of millions of dollars. If you’d like to help the restoration efforts, The Arts Centre is accepting donations so that this historic area can be enjoyed for generations to come.
