Christchurch

Thanks for Jamming with Kiwijam Christchurch 💚
2022's theme was
TOGETHER

The Yoobee Colleges Christchurch Campus is jam-packed with computer labs and spaces for creative jamming! The site is positioned very close to South City Mall, with plenty of cafes and eateries nearby, plus drinks and snacks provided. We have a kitchen and bathrooms onsite, and plenty of space for relaxing over the weekend. During late hours access passes may be required for entry, these will be provided subject to Yoobees Security Policy

You’re welcome to stay for as much or as little as you’d like (no need to arrive or leave when we open &  close), but we recommend sticking around for the show & tell if you can. You will need to make your own arrangements for transport home on Friday and Saturday nights, as we’re unable to provide a supervised space to sleep overnight, and will be closing up the Kiwijam space when the CGDA event hosts & volunteers are finished for the day.

Where to go

The Yoobee College Campus is located near on Colombo Street, near the South City Mall in the Christchurch CBD. You will be able to enter through the main entrances at the Yoobee building, and there will be signs/people inside to point you in the right direction! The site is located very close to the Central Bus Exchange, and there is on-street parking all around the area.

Available Tools & Technology:

There will be computers available on-site in Yoobee’s designated Kiwijam rooms. Unreal Engine, Unity, Blender, Maya, plus a smattering of other tools will be available, but please keep in mind you will be unable to install anything new on the Yoobee computers.
