Event description

Description

Street art tells a story of what the city is, what is was, and what it could be.

Join us on a tour of this ever evolving city and experience it through the eyes of street art.

Tours are lead by our knowledeable Watch This Space trustees, including art historian, Dr. Reuben Woods. We will lead you and your group on a 2 hour tour through the Christchurch CBD, a journey of street art, murals, and graffiti. We'll show you things big and small, explain the history of street art and Christchurch's recent emergence as a "street art capital" in Lonely Planet's first ever street art only guide book, and tell you more about the artists and inspirations behind each work.

Meeting point: by Rolleston Statue in front of the Canterbury Museum

Time: approximately 11am- 1pm

Watch This Space is something we as trustees do in our spare time because we believe Christchurch deserves a street art resource amazing as the street art itself. Proceeds from the tour will go back into our organisation to keep our interactive map and blog on watchthisspace.org.nz up to date, accurate, and of course, free!

Tours run on Saturdays. We encourage guests to book 1-2 days in advance through Eventbrite so we have an idea of guide to guest ratio.

Please keep an eye on our Facebook page for tour updates. Now that we are headed into the winter months, tours may be cancelled due to weather or lack of numbers. In these situations, all tickets will be refunded in full.

Friday tours are available by appointment only and require a minimum of 5 pax. Please email us at tours@watchthisspace.org.nz.

If you can't join us on a tour, check out our website, watchthisspace.org.nz, which has a map of street art locations in Christchurch as well as a blog full of artist interviews.
