Since the earthquakes, Christchurch has become a hub of creativity packed with innovative installations and pop-up boutiques
Still recovering from the earthquakes that hit Canterbury in 2010 and 2011, Christchurch is a city in transition with a new creative vibe. After class, learn about what happened in Canterbury Museum’s Quake City exhibit, before checking out the inventive new art projects springing up around town. Browse Re:START Mall based in brightly coloured shipping containers, or check out the Cardboard Cathedral (which really is made of cardboard). Then, head over to Ilam & Riccarton to refuel in some of the city’s best ethnic eateries, and buy local produce from Christchurch Farmers’ Market.
