Christchurch Creative
After the Christchurch earthquake many artists’ studios, galleries and private homes with art collections were damaged or isolated. A website  has been set up by arts commentator Hamish Keith to allow artists and owners to make a record of what is at risk and where it is. That record is secure to the owner or artist and will only be passed on to earthquake recovery authorities.
