The magic of XCHC is not in one person’s creative passion, this place is at its best when everyone is coming together and sharing their passions. So I’m opening it up to you - what do you want XCHC to be now that we’re open in the evenings?
"This is a place that allows people to give things a go without putting too much stress or pressure on them. If you want to try something, go for it, and you’ve got an awesome and supportive environment to do it. This place is so important to Christchurch, and it’s a place that I’m very glad to have been a part of." - Liam Dangerfield
Got a great idea for a cool, fun project for Christchurch that you’ve been itching to get off the ground?
CHCH SOUP is the event for you. It might be an event, a little project, an artwork, a working bee to get something done in your neighbourhood, garden… anything really. It’s just got to be achievable within 3 months or a discrete part of it does. To that end, SOUP is supporting small, relatively easily achievable local projects get off the ground.
I started to walk mountain tracks to help me cope with my loss and as I continued on this journey the beauty of New Zealand captured my spirit. It started to bring joy back into my life and I wanted to share my journey with others.
