Remix Committee: We Need You!

Remix Committee: We Need You!

We are looking for a small group of passionate taste-makers to join our ReMix Committee. Come and ensure YOUR voice is represented at Christchurch Art Gallery by working with our team to plan an event (and other activities) that is all about, and for, young people. We don’t want to tell you what you might like, we want you to tell us! You pick the theme, you pick the bands, you pick the performers, you pick the film, you pick the speakers.

A message from Christchurch Art Gallery Te Puna o Waiwhetū

Dear friends,

I don’t have the words to express how I’m feeling at the moment, in the wake of what happened in our city last Friday. I know it’s the same for the Gallery team and many of our visitors over the past week. It’s hard to know what to do or what to say. Right now I am numb with shock and deep sadness. I simply don’t have the words.

One Hand Loose

Smoking twin-guitar free-form skuzz, metronomic neo-Kraut vamping, or loose-limbed hayriding hootenanny? One hand Loose is all of the above and more.
