The Arts Centre, Christchurch 8013, Canterbury Region, New Zealand
The Christchurch Arts Centre is a hub for arts, crafts and entertainment in Christchurch, New Zealand. It is located in the neo-gothic former University of Canterbury buildings, the majority of which were designed by Benjamin Mountfort.
The 23 heritage buildings are covered by three separate listings by Heritage New Zealand, two of which are Category I.
Following the 2011 Christchurch earthquake, the complex was closed for major repairs. Following a relaunch in 2016, the buildings have been progressively re-opening, with the entire west end scheduled to be open by the end of 2018 .
