Situated in the historic buildings of the original Canterbury University, the Arts Centre is one of Christchurch's most significant cultural attractions. It offers more than 40 craft studios, galleries and shops, numerous theatres, cinemas, cafes, restaurants and bars and a weekend craft market, organic produce market and International Food Fair. The Arts Centre also runs regular evening and lunchtime concerts and a range of vibrant festivals and events throughout the year. The Arts Centre is home to Te Toi Mana Gallery, a co-operative of Maori and Pacific artists, headed by Riki Manuel. This is the site where Ernest Rutherford studied and conducted early experiments. Rutherford's Den preserves that heritage in the exact location where Rutherford worked.
