Our purpose is growing people and places together. Having evolved from FESTA (the Festival of Transitional Architecture), Te Putahi is focused on the current rebuild and on-going renewal of our city for the long term. Members from Christchurch's creative community have come together to use their wealth of experience in how to creatively engage a wide range of stakeholders and users with the making of a better city. Te Putahi is a vital contributor to a healthy city. Our work will create space for people to learn and develop as citizens, neighbours and as built environment professionals. We will work, with you and for you, to engage people in city-making to make a better Christchurch.
