The Enliven Places Programme (formerly Transitional Cities Programme) transforms underutilised sites into vibrant and welcoming public spaces. We support the community to deliver temporary projects and events that enhance amenity and activity.
The Enliven Places Programme supports and encourages the community to deliver projects and events that enliven and transform Christchurch and leave a lasting legacy. The Programme aims to:
Explore our previous projects and advice to help get started with your own placemaking project.
Enhancing city areas with colour, greenery, sculpture and lighting features.
Pedestrian-friendly projects that support movement and a sense of discovery.
Transforming spaces into vibrant and interactive places for people.
Funding is available to strengthen connections between Christchurch communities and their places and spaces.
Life in Vacant Spaces matches property owners with individuals who have creative ideas for temporary projects.
