FESTA
FESTA
The Festival of Transitional Architecture is a free, biennial public event that engages with the city of Christchurch by exploring urban regeneration through large scale collaborative projects and urban interventions. It is the first and only festival of its kind in the world. Over the course of Labour Weekend, events, performances and projects happen across empty sites and in vacant buildings within the city’s four avenues, reintroducing life and urban activity to the centre. This rediscovery of the inner city invites a variety of collective investigations into the nature of civic life and opens it up to the community’s desire to participate in the remaking of their city. This collection holds photographs, videos and site documentation of the first three FESTA events (2012 - 2014).
