POWERFUL EXAMPLE: Canterbury Museum was presented the Arts Access Museum Award 2018 for its exhibition, The Bristlecone Project, at Museums Aotearoa's conference in May. Presenting the award, Richard Benge, Executive Director of Arts Access Aotearoa, said the exhibition was a "power example of how museums can include the voices, stories, experience and history of people who have experienced inclusion." Canterbury Museum is a member of the Arts For All Canterbury Network.

Events and opportunities in Canterbury

For example, watch Scape Public Art's video, which explores the benefits of public art for everyone in Christchurch and the diverse education programmes that sit alongside it. Public art that engages and can be touched freely inspires and brings together people from any age and gives them the opportunity to be exposed to art in an accessible way. Scape is a member of the Arts For All Canterbury Network.
