Canterbury Time Capsule 2010
The Canterbury Time Capsule is a collection of letters, drawings, and poems recording Cantabrians' experiences of the 4 September 2010 earthquake, and their hopes for the future. Originally, the time capsule was to be placed in the Canterbury Museum for 50 years before being made available to the public. Due to the widespread destruction and damage caused by the 6.3 magnitude aftershock on 22 February 2011, the nature of the project changed and it was decided the time capsule would become a digital collection held UC QuakeStudies.
Contributions from community leaders can be accessed, but otherwise the time capsule contents will not be published until 4 September 2060, the fiftieth anniversary of the 2010 Canterbury earthquake.
