Host a Brooch: A Creative Response to the Canterbury Earthquakes

Jeweller Jacqui Chan created the Host a Brooch project together with Caroline Billing of Christchurch gallery The National, in response to the Canterbury earthquakes.

Caroline lost her own gallery in the February 2011 earthquake, so Host a Brooch operated from a shipping container in Hagley Park. Jacqui made a series of brooches from earthquake rubble, which members of the public could borrow and wear on expeditions through the city, recording their experiences as they went.

This video is part of a series of interviews about creative and community responses to the 2010 and 2011 earthquakes in Canterbury, New Zealand.
