Kia ora! We’re Glitterbox Pursuits. Our goal is to bring out the queer, quirky, and creative in Ōtautahi. We've got a great city filled with a whole lot of pretty incredible people - let's get together and do something great!

We are Audrey Baldwin and Jennifer Shields. We've both spent a lot of time working in the arts and events in Ōtautahi, and have a whole heap of experience behind us. We started Glitterbox Pursuits because we both do so many things all over the place, have so many exciting ideas and plans, and it made sense to consolidate them all under one banner. We love and are dedicated to Ōtautahi Christchurch, and have previously spent most of our time doing institutional work - it’s time to start doing our own thing, and to bring our ideas to live as best we can!

We've threw our first event in late May 2019 - an arts themed pub quiz called Culture Vultures - and it was a total hit!  We have a heap of other plans in motion, including some pretty big goals! We want to cater for the artsy queer crowd, young and old, and to fill the gaps we see our communities wanting filled.

While our event work is currently Christchurch-based, we do hope one day to expand - and our art and content can be appreciated from anywhere! We super appreciate any national or international backers.

By backing us on Patreon you’re supporting us in this mahi, and in everything else we do. The goal is to start doing more and more with Glitterbox - and we’ve got some pretty great, pretty big ideas - but that requires time! By backing us here, you’re enabling us to spend less time hustling on other things and more time working on the cool stuff we love!

In return, every patron gets access to exclusive (or sometimes early access) updates from us, about what we’re working on and what we’re up to! Get insight into the reality of living as freelance creatives, hot art gossip, hot takes, sordid stories, and hear what we really think. Other tiers include (usually good) advice, dream interpretations and tarot readings, bits of art in the mail, and free (or occasionally discounted) tickets to our events.
Tiers
Access to all the good stuff
$2 or more per month

Exclusive (or early-access if it’s something that needs to be posted everywhere else) updates from us about what we’re working on and what we’re up to! May or may not include little Lens updates, sordid stories, playlists and dj mixes, early ticket access, and more. Included in all other tiers.

Agony Art
$5 or more per month

Send us a question - about art, your love life, things going on - and we’ll give you (usually good) advice! Just like Agony Aunt! (You can choose if our response is posted to the Patreon feed or not). Includes access to all the good stuff.

Dream interpretations
$10 or more per month

A monthly interpretation of one of your dreams, from Audrey. Includes access to all the good stuff.

Fun small art things
$15 or more per month

A little something in the mail each month from us at Glitterbox. May or may not include badges, lil collages, personalised odes, and more. Includes access to all the good stuff.

Tarot readings
$20 or more per month

A monthly emailed tarot reading at the beginning each month, from Jennifer. Includes access to all the good stuff.

Event access
$25 or more per month

For supporting us at this level, you’ll get a free ticket to most of our events (sometimes we’ll do things that have a bit of a bigger cost to run - in that case you’ll get a good discount). We aim to run an event a month at this point - but heads up, there may be months where there isn’t one (unless we hit our $200 goal!). Includes access to all the good stuff.

Fun bigger art things!
$30 or more per month only 5 left

A bigger, exclusive something in the mail each month from us at Glitterbox! May or may not include exclusive photographic prints, zines filled with stories and recipes, glitter peens and more! Includes access to all the good stuff.

All the things!*

The big bulk tier! Wow! For backing us at this level, you get (nearly) everything:


- access to all the good stuff

- monthly agony art

- monthly dream interpretation

- monthly lil art thing in the mail

- monthly emailed tarot reading

- event access


(this tier doesn't include the big art things because they're a bit more work - but occasionally we'll have big art things as special offers!)

Goals
$142 of $200 per month
$200 a month covers the admin costs for one event - which means one event per month guaranteed! This gives us room to experiment with other cool new events.
