Get Creative with Tape Art This Weekend


Cantabrians are being invited to transform an inner city wall this weekend with their ideas on what makes them feel all right.

All Right? has teamed up with internationally renowned tape artists Erica Duthie and Struan Ashby to give people an opportunity to turn a city wall into something spectacular for a weekend.

Tape artist Struan Ashby says their murals often reflect current issues and he's excited about seeing people's ideas on wellbeing brought to life.

"Everyone has their own take on wellbeing and I'm really looking forward to seeing what ideas people come up with. Our own work evolves live in discussion with those we meet – so it is always very dynamic and responsive – that’s what makes what we do so fresh and exciting," Struan says.


All Right? Manager Sue Turner says public participation is key to the event.

"The more people who are involved in the creation of the tape art the better it will be. We have a strong group of artists including people from the deaf and disabilities communities and a school group who have signed up to learn this new medium and share their creativity on the wall,” Sue says.

“It will be great to see more people come along, try something new, and feel ownership of the mural.”

Ways to get involved:

• Have a go at tape art: Saturday 8 March, 12pm – 2.30pm

• Watch the mural grow: Saturday 10am – 6pm; Sunday 10am – 4pm

• Community rip down: Sunday 9 March, 4pm – 4.30pm


Location: The south facing wall at Community and Public Health, 310 Manchester Street.
