A record number of entries were received for SCAPE Public Art’s 2019 Re:ACTIVATE Aspiring Artists competition, with the winning five to be exhibited in central Christchurch this spring.
The winning students will have their artworks produced and installed for the first time at Hack Circle, on the corner of Cashel and High streets, as part of SCAPE Public Art’s annual Season festival that runs from 5 October to 16 November.
