The Ashburton Art Gallery and Ashburton
Musem have provided our community with a
centre for arts, culture and heritage from their
present home for close to 25 years.
They provide residents and visitors alike
with interesting and stimulating exhibitions
highlighting our past and challenging our sense
of who we are as a community.
The current building has never been an ideal
home. Ashburton District Council recognised
this and has invested in a purpose-built Art
Gallery and Heritage Centre to be the cultural
heart of our district for decades to come.
With the Centre nearing completion we need to
raise the funds to ensure the exhibition, storage
and work spaces within the Centre combine to
create a facility we are all proud of.
Inside the Box is the fundraising campaign to
do that. It is an opportunity for us all to show
how important it is we tell the stories of our
past, stimulate and challenge our senses and
care for our historic objects and documents.
Inside the Box is a partnership. The Ashburton
Art Gallery, Ashburton Museum and Ashburton
Family History Group are working together to
raise the funds needed, helped and supported
by Ashburton District Council.
