Exchange Christchurch - XCHC

This month we will be focusing on the things that make us human and make our work possible – other people. Creativity can’t exist in a vacuum, we need interactions with or contemplation of others to inspire feelings and thoughts we want to express. Join us at XCHC for an engaging session with some great projects and speakers….

Lana Hart – Smile Couch

Tens of thousands of people have moved to Christchurch to help rebuild our city. The face of our city is changing. Whether they have moved here from the Philippines, Ireland, Fiji, Great Britain, India or even Wellington… we want to make them feel welcome and encourage them to stay. What’s the easiest way to welcome someone and make them feel at home? Start with a smile! This is a simple but wonderful project which will leave you grinning.

Hannah Beasley – MySpace(creative) Poster Campaign

Last month 75 posters featuring the work and words of 5 local creatives were plastered around town. Perhaps you caught a glimpse of what Rachel Morton, Eroica Ritchie, Kirsten MacArthur, Chrissy Irvine and Lyn Cotton shared? The street live campaign is one of the outcomes from the MySpace(creative) project which runs on Instagram and Facebook daily / weekly. Find out more about this simple but delightful project.

Lyn Cotton – Jolt Dance

Jolt is New Zealand’s leading educational integrated Dance Trust. They provide classes, workshops and performance opportunities that enable people with disabilities to have a creative voice. Lyn will talk about the company and their recent involvement with the MySpace(creative) Phantom Billsticker project and how it has impacted on her work with the company.

Liam Dangerfield – Visual Artist

Originally from the UK this painter now delights in calling ChCh home. Drawing inspiration from the transitional urbanscapes we live among his images are a complex fusion of serenely beautiful architectural reflections and slightly dark and damaged vistas. Liam will talk about his work in his studio space at XCHC and let us see the work he is developing for his first solo exhibition.

Tour of XCHC – Camia Young

XCHC is a place for creative individuals and organisations to develop their practice, share ideas, and connect with other creative practitioners so that we build an empowered and inspired creative community. Find out more about this unusual space from the lady who has driven it’s development and get a sneaky peak at what it going on in the rented spaces.
