Starting early 2018 have hosted ten “Seeds Impact Lunches: Connecting dots” gathering people doing good things in Ōtautahi Christchurch together every two months or so. Click the link below to register if you would like to attend the next ones in July 2019 – this time a dinner!
The $30 cost will cover the amazing dinner from Pedro’s cafe at XCHC and you get a chance to network and meet others pushing boundaries in their own unique ways across disciplines.

Will be amazing food at Pedro’s café – the menu will include:
- Tasting platters
- Antipasto to start
- Main including arancini, cauli-wings, mini burgers, bruschetta
- Sweet selection
Drinks and wine will be available throughout the evening (order on own account as extra).
Some inspiration for these lunches is this quote from Peter Simpson’s book “Bloomsbury South: The Arts in Christchurch 1933-1953” – what happens if we connect today across disciplines and specialties? “For two decades in Christchurch, New Zealand, a cast of extraordinary men and women remade the arts. Variously between 1933 and 1953, Christchurch was the home of Angus and Bensemann and McCahon, Curnow and Glover and Baxter, the Group, the Caxton Press and the Little Theatre, Landfall and Tomorrow, Ngaio Marsh and Douglas Lilburn. It was a city in which painters lived with writers, writers promoted musicians, in which the arts and artists from different forms were deeply intertwined.”
