Painting the town.
SJ cover image.

by Renata Hopkins

After the earthquakes in Christchurch, many public facilities were suddenly not available. The article, “Painting the Town” describes how artists have provided people with other ways of experiencing the city by using the walls and streets as their “gallery”. In doing this, they have given people experiences that can help them cope with the difficulties of living in a ruined city.
