Christchurch has been abuzz over the past week with the World Buskers festival attracting large audiences and providing much light relief for a city that welcomes it.
We are also privileged to be the first New Zealand city to host Dr Grordborts Extraordinary Exhibition which is currently on show at the Colombo Complex. If you like the zany world of the Weta Workshop creative team then you will love this.
The Prime Minister opened the exhibition last week and was seen being interviewed about his choice of Ray Gun. Richard Taylor also spoke about the creativity of Weta team member, Greg Broadmore, who dreamed up the zany world of Dr Grordbort.
The exhibition is on for a limited time. Go see it if you can, corner of Elgin and Colombo Streets
Street Art is also making its presence felt on walls around the inner city and a supporting exhibition at the Museum. Go Banksy!
It is so good to see people with passion putting real effort into diversifying the city’s entertainment offering. This is something we expect to see growing as the city increasingly engages in recovery.
It just adds to the increasingly diverse offering in our increasingly diverse city.
