Support LiVS Art Windows as we brighten Ōtautahi's vacant spaces, spotlighting the brilliance of emerging young artists!


In the heart of Ōtautahi, Christchurch, we envision vibrant streets where every window tells a tale, every pane becomes a canvas, where art not only beautifies our surroundings but also empowers the voice of our youth.

Despite the pulsating energy of our young artists, many of their works remain unseen, & a multitude of vacant shop windows in Ōtautahi stand barren & unutilised. These vacancies aren't just empty spaces; they are missed opportunities for our community to be uplifted and inspired.

Enter LiVS Art Windows. Our initiative seeks to bridge this gap by transforming these vacant windows into stages for emerging young artists to showcase their talent. We not only provide a platform for these artists but also rejuvenate & bring life to dormant parts of our city. Imagine walking through Ōtautahi's streets & being greeted by vibrant displays of art, each window telling a unique story, each art piece a testament to the spirit & potential of our youth.

To make this vision a reality, we need your support. Funds raised will go directly to sourcing, curating, & installing these art displays. With your generous donation, you're not just supporting art; you're backing a brighter, more dynamic Ōtautahi & championing the dreams & voices of our young artists. Every contribution, no matter how small, can make a big difference. Help us light up Ōtautahi's vacant windows with the promise & passion of emerging talent.

Donate now, and together, let's create a canvas out of our city!

After careful consideration, we've decided to lower our campaign goal from $10,000 to $2,000. This adjustment allows us to focus on achieving a more realistic target while ensuring that every contribution, no matter the size, has a significant impact.

Your generosity is the driving force behind our campaign, and we believe that this new goal aligns with our shared vision of transforming vacant spaces into vibrant art canvases and supporting emerging artists in Ōtautahi.
