MAKING SPACE celebrates collaborative creative practice taking place in Aotearoa New Zealand today.

Taking place in the heart of Ōtautahi Christchurch - where collaboration and collective working has become a part of the fabric of this post-earthquake city - MAKING SPACE involves six diverse artist collectives and over 30 individuals practising at the cutting-edge of the Aotearoa New Zealand art community

CoCA is hosting works, events and the members of FAFSWAG, FIKA Writers, Fresh and Fruity, Mata Aho Collective, SaVAge K’lub, and The Social with the aim of inviting diverse communities to connect, create art and encourage conversations. MAKING SPACE offers an opportunity to shift how we view art and explore its potential for social change.

Come and experience installations, architectural interventions, cross-gallery collaborations, performance, temporary artist residencies, projections, exchanges and discussions.
