As part of the Enliven Places programme, the Council delivers temporary projects that transform empty or underutilised spaces into vibrant and inventive areas in the central city and suburbs.
A variety of artistic, social engagement, greening and wayfinding projects in collaboration with local communities to support activities and entertainment have been completed, and contribute to, Christchurch's unique sense of place.
