Mural Masterpieces - Alpha Support Centre

Alpha Support Centre, 376 Ferry Road, Christchurch.

Created by Jim Field with assistance from Ben, Trevor and associated clients.

Accessible to public:

Mural theme:
New Zealand Fish and Wildlife.

Background to mural creation:
New Zealand fish and wildlife dominate the sightlines of the Alpha Support Centre Trust in Christchurch. A bright and coloured atmosphere for disabled clients has been created with a scene showing sea, land and fauna. Measuring 12 metres x 5.5 metres, the mural is the pride and joy of the Alpha Trust who are committed to providing vocational and recreational services to people with an intellectual disability. The entire work took about 33 days to complete (260 hours). Jim counts himself lucky to have had a helping hand from two clients (Ben and Trevor) who did a lot of the basic work with rollers and brushes. Jim had only an extension ladder to reach the highest parts of the mural and since working on this mural has lost his fear of heights!

Jim is employed primarily as a community support worker/caregiver but also officially as Alpha's resident artist.
