The series of earthquakes that began on 4 September 2010 altered the Canterbury landscape and had a huge impact on the people. Now it’s time to create a place to remember.
The Canterbury Earthquake Memorial will honour the lives of those who died in Canterbury’s earthquakes and provide a place for individuals and groups to pay respect. It will acknowledge the shared trauma experienced by the people of Canterbury.
It will also give recognition to the people who participated in the rescue and recovery operation, and provide a special place for holding events, such as the annual memorial gathering on 22 February. Design ideas must be submitted by 12 noon (New Zealand Standard Time) on 22 August 2014.
