Local Information

Sitting just outside of the central city, XCHC is a 500m² warehouse with a venue, studios, cafe/bar downstairs and an apartment upstairs. Christchurch is the biggest city in the South Island of New Zealand. With outdoor activities ranging from bouldering, snowboarding, surfing, and mountain biking in the back yard, the city is also an early 21st-century city; showcasing new buildings mixed with old beautiful herritage throughout. The city is flat and perfect for biking, and you can easily get from one side of the city to the other in under 10 minutes via public electric scooters, car, or bike. With 400,000 people and growing, Christchurch is becoming one of the most interesting cities to live in because of its opportunities for new business and ideas; particularly around Social Enterprise and Sustainability.
