Christchurch Photo Booth News
I feel very privileged to be returning to my hometown of Christchurch after fifteen years away and am super excited to bring Photo Booth Fun with me. There is such a sense of optimism in the region for 2012 and the city is showing its impressive resilient spirit and creativity with new innovations and developments everywhere – From the pop-up mall, to bars, cafes and even a new venue for the wonderful Court Theatre – Not to mention the incredible and dynamic creations from the Gap Filler team: where anyone with an idea and initiative can enlist their help to transform vacant sites into temporary, creative projects for the benefit of the community : www.gapfiller.org.nz So cool!
We’ve had a great welcome in Christchurch with the region’s universities making sure they started their year off with some photobooth lovin. From a Lincoln Staff Garden Party to a 1600 strong toga party at Canterbury University. And of course, along with our teammates in the other centres around NZ, we joined ECPAT to help spread their important message during O week.
And the fun’s not over for our uni mates, we’re looking forward to joining Canterbury graduates at the annual UCSA Grad Ball on April 27th. So, if you’ve graduated and want a chance to not only dress up and celebrate your time at uni but to jump in our booth and get snapped in your finery, we hope to see you there!
I’m off now to prepare for what I think is a birthday party record for the Photo Booth Fun team – A 90th celebration – And since the party is my very own Granddad’s, I know there won’t be a crocheted afghan or pair of slippers in sight – Just lots of fun celebrating and getting snapped in the booth!
