Christchurch

 

“George Shaw and Shannon Webster’s Oi YOU! have developed and delivered a groundbreaking project, in partnership with Canterbury Museum,  called RISE, which drew a quarter of a million visitors and won NZ Museum Show of the Year in the process. As a result of the event - and subsequent Oi YOU! projects in the city - more than 40 murals have since been produced, and street art has become a vital part of the energy of the rejuvenated city.”
