Welcoming Communities Ashburton Mural Project

Ashburton District Welcoming Communities is planning for a mural to be painted in the Ashburton CBD. The project is designed to help newcomers feel more accepted in their new home and encourage connections between locals and newcomers.​​​

Submit your idea

Residents are being asked to submit what a visual representation of 'welcoming' would look like to them. The best ideas will be made into a brief for local artists to create a design that would be painted on a wall in the Ashburton CBD (yet to be determined).

The brief will be made by a panel comprising of Tiipene Phillips (Hakatere Marae), Deputy Mayor Liz McMillan, John Magyaya (Ashburton Youth Council), Brian Davidson (CBD building owners) and Shirin Khosraviani (Ashburton Art Gallery).

​Ideas need to be submitted here by Thursday 3 December.
