Cultural Property and Natural Disaster

Hamish Keith, worried about Christchurch art in the wake of the earthquake,
has set up a website to identify items which may be at risk.

After the Christchurch earthquake many artists studios, galleries and private homes with art collections were damaged or isolated. This site allows artists and owners to make a record of what is at risk and where it is. That record is secure to the owner or artist and will only be passed on to earthquake recovery authorities.

If you have works of art, antiques or other cultural valuables at risk in Christchurch you can record them here.
