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 led by our Watch This Space trustees including art historian, Dr. Reuben Woods. Over 2 hours in the Christchurch CBD, we will take you on 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: in front of the Canterbury Museum by Rolleston Statue
When: Saturday 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. Tour proceeds will go back into our organisation to keep out interactive map and written content on watchthisspace.org.nz up to date, accurate, and of course, free!
Friday tours are now by appointment only and require a minimum of 5 people.
We encourage guests to book in advance through Eventbrite so we have an idea of guide to guest ratio, however last minute on-the-day bookings can be made in cash at the start of the tour.
Please email us at email@example.com for group bookings.
