A reinvigorated arts and cultural sector evolves and flourishes across greater Christchurch allowing broad participation in a range of arts and cultural activities and engagement with heritage collections.

At its heart is an attractive, vibrant central city offering affordable, accessible spaces for artists and cultural practitioners to work, perform and exhibit.  Māori cultural values, arts and design are an integral and valued aspect of the greater Christchurch landscape.  The arts and cultural sector is recognised as a key driver for urban regeneration bringing cultural, social and economic benefit to the region.  Through different forms of creative expression the city will also commemorate those lost as a result of the earthquakes and recognise its effects on the wider community.
