Supporting organisations and events in the arts, culture and heritage sector is one way we seek to contribute to the enrichment of our communities both locally and nationwide.
Murray & Co presents an annual exhibition of artworks by emergent Canterbury and Auckland artists featuring students from Ilam School of Fine Arts (The University of Canterbury) and Elam School of Fine Arts (The University of Auckland). In 2023, we held two '"Artists in Conversation" events, showcasing the works and practice of five exceptionally talented recent graduates. We also worked with an emerging creator again this year.
The Milne and Murray families have supported the CSO in various ways over the years; Chris Milne is the Chair of the Board of Trustees of the Christchurch Symphony Foundation which works to support the orchestra.
