Re:START Farewell Exhibition

As the work of the Re:START the Heart Trust is drawing to a close, we are celebrating the story of Christchurch’s world famous transitional shipping container mall with a farewell photography exhibition.

Giving an exclusive, behind-the-scenes-from-within-the-Red-Zone insight into how the brightly-coloured and iconic inner city mall came to be, 61 Days to Re:START: An Exhibition in Photos will run for the final two weeks of the Re:START the Heart Trust.

Named after the mere two months it took to create the mall from the day the 64 shipping containers arrived in Lyttelton aboard the Mol Summer, this free exhibition gives Christchurch the opportunity to reminisce and experience the journey of bringing retail back to the central city with behind-the-scenes photos of and detailed information on the temporary, six-month solution that went on to last five-and-a-half-years.

Don’t miss this farewell exhibition!

When: 12 – 30 April
Open: 10am – 4pm, 7 days (closed Good Friday, Easter Sunday and open from 1pm on Anzac Day)
Location: In the former Kathmandu container, beside Ballantynes and behind Lululemon.
Admission: Free
