Rediscover the Gallery after dark with the Mix - a vibrant changing calendar of special events combining people and art, with music, great food, beer and wine, pop-up talks and demonstrations, debates, film and live performances.

Send off summer in style with a late-night picnic at the Gallery! Inspired by our love of warm nights, great food and Wayne Youle’s new exhibition - Look Mum No Hands, the Garden Party is a vibrant celebration of the summer we missed out on this year. Explore the exhibitions, grab a tasty treat from some of Christchurch’s best food vendors or a drink from our pop-up gin bar, take an art tour, explore Look Mum No Hands with the artist himself and curator Felicity Milburn – and don’t miss iconic New Zealand designer Kate Sylvester discuss art and fashion.

Have #adifferentnightout!

Food for thought?

Food for thought?

This year’s weekly ArtBite programme is about to start! From Friday 10 February, we will again offer a weekly presentation of a work on display here at Te Puna o Waiwhetu. The aim of these 30-minute talks is to give you an art break in the middle of your day. We know you’re busy, so this isn’t a long lecture meant to take up too much of your time. And they’re free. With a new work presented each Friday at 12.30pm, the information will be fresh so you can impress your friends during your weekend socialising.
