Block Party is a celebration of arts, culture and creativity in Ōtautahi Christchurch featuring dance, theatre, live music, children’s workshops and an arts market.
Events will be held at venues and destinations across four blocks in central Christchurch, including Canterbury Museum at CoCA, Ravenscar House Museum, the Christchurch Art Gallery Te Puna O Waiwhetū, CoCA Toi Moroki, Te Matatiki Toi Ora the Arts Centre, Teece Museum and The Physics Room.
Canterbury Museum at CoCA will be joining the festivities with the return of the much-loved Great Museum Santa Search. Will you be able to find all the special Santas hidden among two display cases brimming with the bearded bringer of Christmas cheer? Spot them all and win a prize.
Block Party is a collaboration between the Christchurch City Council, Christchurch Art Gallery Te Puna O Waiwhetū, CoCA Toi Moroki, Te Matatiki Toi Ora the Arts Centre, Canterbury Museum and Ōtautahi arts organisations.
