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.
Our temporary projects include artistic installations, greening, and wayfinding, each contributing to regeneration and Christchurch's unique sense of place.
Funding is available to contribute to Christchurch’s regeneration with positive and creative temporary projects.
Life in Vacant Spaces matches property owners with individuals who have creative ideas for temporary projects.
