  • The Ashburton Art
    Gallery & Heritage Centre

    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.

    The Art Gallery & Heritage Centre will provide
    for a range of interests and features:
    • Museum display,
      storage and conservation facilities
    • Gallery display, storage and
      conservation facilities
    • Ashburton Family History Group
      research facility
    • Community archive holding important
      documents of our past
    • Education space for schools and
      interest groups to learn and enjoy
    • Dedicated education and meeting space
  • You can be involved

    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.

    This is your chance to really make a difference
    - to provide a legacy for our current and future

    We are asking for your support.
