Christchurch Art Gallery Foundation

I joined the Foundation in 2014, not because I’m an art aficionado or collector, but because it was a chance to contribute to our city’s regeneration. As a Foundation, we didn’t want to follow the traditional way of doing things. Instead, we concentrated on using our diverse networks to build relationships based on loyalty and art. We asked people to engage and believe. As a result, we’ve preserved art in the hearts and minds of long-standing Christchurch residents as well as a new generation of Cantabrians. I’m incredibly proud to be part of that.

Help us build a collection of opportunities

Over the past two years, 164 generous souls have come together with the Christchurch Art Gallery Foundation and backed our TOGETHER programme. With a solid foundation in place, we’re looking for thoughtful, long-term partners who believe in this city and want to come together with artists, our Gallery team and each other.
