New Creative Pop-Up Store in Christchurch

There is a new kid in town, called Creator Co-Lab (previously Assembly Point) Pop Up…. Well, not completely new, but a new set-up. The pop-up shop is a continuation of what the team of Assembly Point started. It's a new creative pop-up store, in the heart of Christchurch CBD. The work of heaps of local artists & creatives is on display and available for purchase. Various workshops will take place as well.

Creative Minds Behind the Christchurch Pop-Up Shop

The Christchurch creative pop-up shop started out as Assembly Point Pop-up Shop. The brains behind this pop-up shop are Ceci Freire (Creative Clay Studio) and Debbie Porter (Into the Wild NZ). They wanted to create a cosy creative space for the cold winter months in Christchurch.

With the help of Live in Vacant Spaces and the Christchurch City Council, via the Enliven Places Projects Fund, the idea for this amazing temporary project came to life.

From there it evolved into Creator Co-Lab pop-up shop which is set up & run by Chloe Winstanley. She took over the store space in Cathedral Junction when the Assembly Point Pop-up Store journey ended. A new chapter and another creative asset to Otautahi Christchurch.

Pop-up Store Info

The Assembly Point pop-up shop is now called Creator Co-Lab, but it is still located in the Cathedral Junction hub, between the barbershop and the Christchurch Tramway ticket office (see location info). This community space is all about creativity, being a gallery, shop and art room all in one space.

There will also be workspaces available for people who want to do some work. And workshops will be offered for those who want to get creative on these cold winter days.

All events and workshops will be announced on their Facebook page. Make sure to LIKE that page because you don't want to miss out.

Check out the opening hours of the pop-up store and drop by whenever you can.
