WORD Christchurch Presents ‘The Lost Art of Letter Writing’


This free, interactive project invites people to send letters to, and receive them from, strangers – encouraging connection and creativity.

You’ll find custom-designed bureaus on the ground floor of Tūranga to address, write, send and/or receive letters. The bureaus will include everything required, from ink to inspiration – a gently guided letter writing experience for both expert writers and anyone with a story to tell.

Letters will be hand delivered by WORD Posties across festival sites – Tūranga, The Piano, The Arts Centre and New Regent St.

The Lost Art of Letter Writing is taking place over the weekend of 26-27 August 11am-5pm.

This will be free to take part in – a unique opportunity for creative connection and correspondence!
