Christchurch Arts Festival

Call for Expressions of Interest: Brand Development


The Christchurch Arts Festival is taking a dynamic, fresh approach to its presence in the city. We are seeking partners to share in our determination to reflect and affect a unique and distinct face for this new, ever-evolving city. The new festival will provide an experience that is like no other precisely because it grows out of this unique place, presented by our diverse and talented artists and producers in collaboration with national and international innovators and trailblazers – our art, our music, our food. Our Festival has a completely new look. It is not like anything our city has seen before.

Expressions of Interest should include an overview of the creative approach you would take for the brand design across all platforms. Please also detail your ability to deliver, a timeline and an approximate quote.


The intention of the new design package is to signify a refreshed approach and create heightened interest and appeal in attendance and support of the Festival. To show a diversified programme and appeal to a broader audience. To create strong and inviting prospects for local businesses and Christchurch City.


The brand should appeal across all our community groups, we want to instil pride and togetherness in our past and present arts community – and have a vehicle that is strong enough to elicit a sense of longing (to belong) among future audiences.

Local businesses and Christchurch City Residents to recognise this as an opportunity to affect the city’s well-being, as well as the social and economic development of the region.

An opportunity for Local, National and International performers.
