Christchurch Conversations

Christchurch Conversations brings relevant, interesting, internationally renowned civic experts to Christchurch to inspire and challenge us. The expert engages locals communities and professionals in conversation during their visit, alongside a free public lecture. This series seeks to encourage civic awareness and to engage the public and different interest groups to consider different approaches to city-making.

CPD points are available for most events. For upcoming conversations see our facebook page for event details

In 2017 we are running a special series within the Christchurch Conversations programme called ‘Bold Thinking for the Red Zone’.  These six events are a collaboration with Regenerate Christchurch and Christchurch City Council and are focused on the future of the former residential red zone.  You will be inspired and challenged as engaging local and international speakers share their views and ideas about the red zone’s future at this pivotal moment in the city’s regeneration.
