The Foundation needs like-minded people, like you, to support the gallery and help the culture of Ōtautahi Christchurch to flourish. Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow.

Looking forward at the Past We’re focused on maintaining, restoring and expanding Christchurch Art Gallery’s collection, telling stories from the past and providing an incomparable window into yesterday and the changing times.

Celebrating the Now We foster and promote art in our community, helping emerging artists to become established names and giving artists opportunities to make great works that they may not otherwise be able to. We collaborate with artists, prompting them to be more ambitious, more adventurous.

Anticipating the Future Together, and with the right support, we can tackle all of that and whatever else gets thrown our way. But it needs the contributions of a dedicated group with a long-term vision.
