The Restoration of Heritage at the Arts Centre of Christchurch

BY ANDRE LOVATT
@ VOL 23 ON MAY 04, 2015

The Arts Centre in Christchurch is a neo-gothic campus, once hosting the local university, converted into a space for local artists to practise and showcase. Severely damaged in the Canterbury earthquakes, it is now going through an extensive restoration. Arts Centre CEO Andre Lovatt gives people an insight into the restoration of the Arts Centre, to explain what it is that they have been doing since the earthquakes, show the process visually and give an indication on the progress that is being made. Showing the love, care and attention that so many people are giving to their restoration work and how, when it is all done, the Arts Centre, and the Christchurch wider community, will be so much better for it.

Six minutes on the power of place, and the value of heritage in its original context.

This was "Presentation of the Day" on June 16, 2015.
