Creating space for movement makers
to flourish in Ōtautahi Christchurch

Welcome to the MAP studio

MAP Studio is located at 76 Hawdon Street on the outskirts of central Ōtautahi Christchurch in Sydenham. We boast some great neighbours with some of the best local art galleries and dealers, op-shops, The Colombo, and Grizzly Bakery only a short walk away.

Primarily dedicated to contemporary dance and performance classes, workshops, and events, the MAP Studio is wheelchair accessible, versatile and fit for purpose for a wide range of applications, and is available for hire by negotiation.

The studio is 10 x 10m, with a sprung Marley dance floor, toilet and kitchen facilities, as well as office space, an excellent PA soundsystem, and roller door access to bring in larger items to the space.

MAP runs Community Classes, an In-House Artist Programme, the Research Exchange Artist Residencies, an annual Community Choreographic Project, The MAP Sessions, as well as various events, happenings, and gatherings at the studio.

MAP upholds our Safer Space Policy which we ask all users of the space to adhere to and is visible on entry to the space.
