Avonside Girls High School has its annual Arts Week coming up soon, which is a showcase of excellence in drama/dance/music/visual arts.

However, the school hall was damaged in the earthquake so the girls have to perform the evening concert off site and have limited space for their daily performances/visual art displays etc. 

The cost of hiring a freight container that opens at the side (see the above image), as a temporary option for this year's Arts Week, is $600.  (The cost to purchase is around $8000, so a one month hire for $600 (discounted) has been deemed more realistic).

It would make a huge difference to the success of the Arts Week having a designated space we can build an Arts programme around.  The students are very excited at the prospect of having a portable stage on the school grounds and are already planning ways to best utilise it.

Potential additional funding would be used towards materials (industrial adhesive, paint, wood, solar powered lights) for a Gap Filler project that will be intalled in a public space in Christchurch. 

Avonside Arts Week is open to the public.

Any support for this project will be greatly appreciated.
