Gap Filler workshops to help people to revitalise urban spaces will be held in Invercargill for the first time in late March.
The workshops are run by a Christchurch company which started initiatives in empty shops and spaces following the Christchurch earthquakes.
Council’s Community Development Manager, Mary Napper, said during the free introductory workshops participants would explore local ideas for utilising empty buildings and unloved spaces in and around cities and towns.
“Gap Filler will share their Christchurch examples and explain how to begin the planning of your project. The afternoon workshop is for members of the public who have a definite idea, or a space they wish to utilise. Participants will receive assistance to develop their ideas and begin project plans,” she said.
Mary Napper discusses the Gap Filler workshops on Radio Southland’s City Focus programme. Listen to the Radio Southland podcast.
