Freemasons Fill a Gap
Audio tours are a great way to learn about a city, to experience it visually while listening to your own personal guide. With an ever changing landscape and the desire to provide visitors and locals alike with an intimate tour of the Christchurch CBD, Gap Filler created The Transitional City Audio Tour.
The project brought together people involved in the fine arts and creative arts disciplines, geography/planning, architecture, and landscape architecture from CPIT, Lincoln University and the University of Canterbury. and The Freemasons.
Ryan Reynolds, co-founder of Gap Filler, discussed the project with Dai Eveleigh and Gerald Robertson, local Freemasons, and described the need for audio players to enable delivery of the Tour. Assisted by The Freemasons Charity, 20 MP3 players and 20 headphones were gladly donated. “When The Freemasons were approached by Gap Filler, we could see their passion and desire to support the community – exactly the core values of Freemasons. “Yes” was an easy answer,.” Mr Eveleigh said.
The free tour of approximately 1 hour 40 minutes takes participants from the Pallet Pavilion around the streets, paths, vacant sites and new landmarks before returning to the Pallet Pavilion. The audio player and headsets can be borrowed free of charge with proof of ID, collected from and returned to Café Woohoo in the Pallet Pavilion, corner of Kilmore and Durham Streets.
Gap Filler is the Charity behind many of the interesting projects in Christchurch, including The Pallet Pavillion, Central City Wide Mini Golf, and The Dance –O-Mat with the aim to create a more interesting, dynamic and vibrant city. www.gapfiller.org.nz
