We would like your help to keep Christchurch clean and graffiti-free.

Anyone can get involved and there’s lots of ways you can help. Graffiti volunteers play an important role in keeping our communities clean, safe and free of graffiti.

There’s something for everyone – from spotting and reporting graffiti around your neighbourhood to getting involved in cleaning it up. You can even use your artistic flair to create beautiful murals or support the community as they complete murals around Christchurch.

Join the team at the Graffiti Programme and you’ll have a great time and meet new people.

Help us keep Christchurch beautiful.

Tag spotting

We need help to spot and report graffiti in all areas of Christchurch. Quick removal of graffiti is the best way to stop tagging, so the sooner we know about it, the faster we can get it cleaned up. If you have seen graffiti, please report it online(external link)contact us(external link) or use our smartphone app Snap, Send, Solve(external link). Reporting only takes a few minutes.

Tag removing

Can you spare a few hours on a casual basis? We need help to remove graffiti in various areas across Christchurch. All paint and materials provided.

Artists and mentors

Are you creative? Do you enjoy supporting others? As an artist, you can help businesses and other groups to create murals on their properties to help them stop getting tagged with unsightly graffiti.

As an art mentor, you will share your artistic flair with the community as they complete mural projects around Christchurch.


Have fun while learning. Get your class together and help clean up your community. Our programme gives students a chance to help clean up their neighbourhood and keep everyone feeling safe.


Give back (and get fresh air). Get your team together, get out of the office and give back to your community. Volunteer with your workmates for teambuilding, clean up some graffiti and make the place look great.
