Seeking Christchurch's Creative Children

Seeking Christchurch's Creative Children

McConnell Dowell, in conjunction with the Christchurch Arts Festival has launched a competition to find out how creative Christchurch children can be.

The competition is in celebration of Christchurch Arts Festival 2015 and the arrival of the stunning luminarium EXXOPOLIS in the city.

McConnell Dowell wants Christchurch children to design their own luminarium and be in to win a personal tour of the Architects of Air luminarium EXXOPOLIS for their entire class.

McConnell Dowell is a cornerstone partner of Christchurch Arts Festival and their support means the Festival has been able to keep prices for entry to EXXOPOLIS to just $5 per person.

“Without the support of McConnell Dowell, we really couldn’t bring this special visual arts experience to Christchurch,” Festival Director Craig Cooper said. “And now McConnell Dowell is encouraging Christchurch children to get creative and be inspired by EXXOPOLIS to design their own luminarium.”

The competition is open to primary and intermediate schools in the Canterbury region. Entries can be submitted by individuals or groups. Students need to submit three hand-drawn illustrations of their design including three different views (top, front and left/right).

The competition will be judged by Architects of Air and the most original and creative entry will win a private tour of EXXOPOLIS for their class on Friday 4 September at 2.30pm.

The prize includes transport for children and accompanying teachers.

The competition is open now and closes on Monday 17 August at 5pm.

To submit entries or to ask for more information please email artcompetition@mcdgroup.com

It keeps saying it wants tax levels to either stay the same or be increased, so that public services can be maintained, or even (perish the thought) improved.
