Our stories

This collection contains content sourced from community contributors, including via Kete Christchurch and the Discovery Wall.

Content has also been contributed by Christchurch residents, both past and present, and by visitors. The community is invited to contribute further material through the Discovery Wall and its website, and our annual Photo Hunt.

Kete Christchurch was an online resource facilitated by Christchurch City Libraries from 2009. The aim was to bring together stories, photographs, video and audio, both contemporary and historical, relating to Christchurch and the Banks Peninsula area.

The website showcases the content available through the Discovery Wall in Tūranga, which allows exploration of images of the history of Christchurch with images and videos curated from the Christchurch City Libraries heritage collection and material from other collections.
