Public celebrations begin on Saturday 26 September with a Creative Forum & Panel Discussion from 11am-12.30pm aiming to unpack what value the arts and culture sector brings to the Waimakariri and North Canterbury region, and to consider what a thriving creative sector looks like. Discussions will be in the context of the Wellbeing Framework looking at economic, social, environmental and cultural outcomes – towards development of the sector.
After the Creative Forum from 1.30-4pm esteemed artist Philip Trusttum will give a talk and create a collaborative painting with his audience to officially launch his new exhibition What Have We Got Here.
On Sunday, the Arts in Oxford Gallery will be open for a Public Makers Day from 10am-4pm, with all creatives welcome and the opportunity provided to learn, share and interact with local artists.
