Artists band together for Christchurch's 'Stand-Up for Peace' this April

In response to the devastating events in Christchurch last Friday, 15 March, we put a call out to our arts community to let us know about any initiatives to support the community directly impacted by the Christchurch terror attack. Artists have mobilised, and are redirecting funds, organising charity drives, and gifting their time in support.

A top-notch lineup of Kiwi comics are lending their talent to 'Stand Up For Peace'—a special "Stand-Up" fundraiser for those who were affected by the attacks on March 15, 2019. Join Ben Hurley, Dai Henwood, Paul Ego, Josh Thomson, Justine Smith, Jeremy Elwood, Jamaine Ross and more, alongside a brilliant lineup of locals at one of Christchurch's most loved institutions—The Court Theatre—for a night of funny fundraising on Wednesday, 10 April.

Tickets are priced from $30 – $100, in a "choose your own donation" with all proceeds donated to the families and victims via Victim Support.

In the coming weeks, we will be sending regular updates of the events and initiatives led by the arts community to proactively support all those affected.
