As demolition gangs reduce ruins to rubble, a dynamic group of artists, innovators and entrepreneurs are bringing life back to the streets of post-quake Christchurch, empowering the people and creating a promising future for a dynamic new city. Projects like the 185 Empty Chairs memorial, Dance-O-mat, Pallet Pavilion, and the profusion of street art have become iconic symbols of the grassroots urban movement and provide sharp contrast to central Government's big business, corporate driven approach to the rebuild of the city. The Art of Recovery is a lively and beautifully filmed documentary that tells an uplifting story of resilience and community spirit and informs a greater conversation about how we live together, and how our we build our cities.
