Pop Up Penguins is bringing giant penguins to the streets of Christchurch.
We are inviting new and established artists to submit designs to decorate the fibre-glass sculptures and bring them to life.
We will then present the designs to the Pop Up Penguins sponsors who will choose designs to go on their sponsored penguin. Designs are welcome in any medium - traditional to new media, fine art to illustrations, graffiti and mosaic.
For more information, go to www.popuppenguins.co.nz where you can download the Artist Pack and submit your design. Design submission deadline is midnight on 31st March 2020.
A new charge for excess water use may disproportionately impact heavy water users in Christchurch's poorest suburbs.
Kia ora Canterbury, it's time to dust off that old camera, get out and about and show the rest of your neighbours your favourite, treasured spots in your region. It could be an awesome view, the shy wildlife or even the old buildings that are wanting their stories to be told.
Go ahead, get snapping and illustrate what's beyond your backyard.

We're keen to talk to someone whose diagnostic appointments were put on hold during alert level 4, and how this has affected you. If you are willing to share your story, and be identified, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
