The Enliven Places Projects Fund was for temporary projects to enliven vacant spaces.
The Enliven Places Projects Fund has now closed permanently. The fund enabled individuals, community groups and businesses to contribute to Christchurch’s regeneration with productive, positive and creative temporary projects that enliven vacant spaces.
Diverse, innovative, experimental and amenity-enriching projects create buzz, improve wellbeing, offer a much-needed point of difference and builds on Christchurch’s reputation as a place for people, as well as a place in which businesses establish more easily.
This small grant fund provides support to those seeking to temporarily turn vacant spaces – for example land awaiting development, buildings awaiting tenants, walls, hoardings and windows – into spaces that are vibrant, enlivened, greened or otherwise publicly activated. These activations are for public good and will take place while longer-term uses or tenancies are being determined, or works are yet to commence.
Projects will be considered that are well-planned and have partnerships in place.
To be eligible for this fund, proposed projects must demonstrate how they meet the below criteria:
