SALTBOX Studios, in association with RDU 98.5FM, are proud to present a 2022 programme of activities in the newly refitted rehearsal spaces formerly known as BeatBox – located at the BOXED QUARTER 270 St Asaph St, SALT DISTRICT, central Ōtautahi, Christchurch.
Giving new life to tired spaces, SALTBOX is undergoing a fresh transformation to incorporate recording, performance and hospitality services primarily for musicians, but also the greater industry. And making immediate use of these spaces will be a monthly rotation of music related activities including access subsidy, music workshops and community capability development.
