    OPEN CHRISTCHURCH 2023: Transforming the campus of a te Tiriti based university

    With: Corban Te Aika (Ngāi Tahu)

    Join Corban Te Aika (Ngāi Tahu), Kaiārahi at the University of Canterbury, to learn about how cultural narratives are being realised through design at the Ilam campus. Enjoy a walk around UC to see how these are expressed in new and refurbished buildings. Think about what is involved in the university’s journey towards becoming a te Tiriti based institution and what architecture's role is within this as it  celebrates its 150th year.
