FESTA 2013: A city-within-a-city for Labour weekend
FESTA 2013: A city-within-a-city for Labour weekend (25-28 October)
The first and only festival of its kind in the world, the annual Festival of Transitional Architecture is a free, public event that engages with the city of Christchurch by exploring urban regeneration through large scale collaborative projects and interventions.
Following on from the success of LUXCITY, where 20,000 people populated Christchurch's centre to participate in a city made from light for one night, FESTA will present a city-within-the-city over Labour Weekend.
The temporary cityscape located in the heart of the transitional city will be formed through a myriad of interventions, events, projects and public participation that will bring life to the former Red Zone.
In addition to this year's main event - a processional performance of the carnivalesque Canterbury Tales - the festival will include performance, cinema, art, hospitality, talks, public picnics, urban agriculture and architectural installations.
