URBAN DREAM BROKERAGE WELLINGTON

 

MAKING space for new ideas - enlivening city CENTRES through public participation

“We did aeroplane victory laps when we got the news…. You can’t really set a community hypothetically so now we can turn outward and give access to all of these people.” Co-Liberate

We are calling for proposals for the use of vacant retail space from artists, designers, businesses, community groups and social entrepreneurs, and interest from property owners in supporting them. Got an idea? Anyone with an innovative idea that needs a space within which to interact with the public can apply. Check out how it works here. What it's all about? Listen to this interview with RNZ's Wallace Chapman. Are you a property owner? Go here. View images and information on all projects below.
