Kia ora! Welcome to Glitterbox Pursuits!
We are Audrey Baldwin and Jennifer Shields. We've both spent a lot of time working in the arts and events in Ōtautahi. Audrey curated and produced First Thursdays, and has been co-director of Doctor Sketchy's Anti-Art School for 9 years this year. Jennifer spent the last two years managing and curating at Toi Moroki Centre of Contemporary Art and spent 2018 curating RDU 98.5FM's alt/indie playlist.
We started Glitterbox Pursuits because we both do so many things all over the place, have so many exciting ideas and plans, and it made sense to consolidate them all under one banner. We love and are dedicated to Ōtautahi Christchurch, and have previously spent most of our time doing institutional work. We're currently both freelancing/under-employed and figured it'd be a good time to start doing our own thing!
Our goal with Glitterbox Pursuits is to bring out the queer, quirky, and creative in Ōtautahi. We've got a great city filled with a whole lot of pretty incredible people - let's get together and do something great!
We've got a heap of our own ideas, and a lot on the way - but if there's any event you ever wanted to see happen in Ōtautahi, hit us up.
