Join us for a few drinks and nibbles as we launch Freerange Volume 11: Institutional Love. This journal examines the idea that the changes we need to take place in society are best managed through a caring and supportive approach to existing practices and institutions rather than asking for their complete renewal and re-invention.

FESTA this year is really about making do with the things we have available to us - we have the means - and doing it in the most loving, caring, and human way possible. This is precisely what we hope to share with Freerange Volume 11: Institutional Love.

FESTA is a vibrant weekend festival celebrating the unique urban environment of Christchurch and the creative urban regeneration that has emerged from it.

The theme for FESTA 2016 is ‘We Have the Means’, which focuses on citizen-initiated urban regeneration and sustainability through the reuse of waste materials in design. The ‘means’ we are celebrating includes both the people of Christchurch and visitors to the city, who care about the city’s development and flourishing the materials that we are able to repurpose and divert from landfill, which are then used to create functioning, beautiful and interesting objects for Christchurch.

Our headline event, Lean Means – a spectacular temporary city made from ‘waste’ materials, is set to attract thousands and is live for one night only on Saturday 22 October (rain date 23 October).
