The aim of Carter Group Heritage Week is to create an annual celebration of our heritage buildings and places by involving the people of Christchurch in a series of social, cultural and educational events, which focus on the value of the Citys built heritage.
"More than Bricks and Mortar"
This year saw a record 280 events run by 90 groups and organisations. There was the introduction of the Gargoyle Competition and the production of a Commemorative Programme to mark the last 10 years of Heritage within the city.
10th Anniversary Carter Group Heritage Week was again a great success. Thank you to all the groups and individuals who contributed their time, resources and expertise to run fantastic events.
The culture of a community is what makes it unique. It comprises a continuation of the natural physical elements and constructed landmarks, of personal memories and histories, of community attitudes and values. The elements which we choose to take into the future dictate our cultural landscapes.
Heritage Week is core funded by the Christchurch City Council with additional sponsorship from naming sponsor, the Carter Group, The Community Trust and Resene.
