'Te Puna Auaha', meaning the spring/pool of creativity/innovation, is a makerspace for Lyttelton providing the community with a place in which people with shared interests can gather to work on projects while sharing ideas, equipment, and knowledge. It is intended to be a community shed (like a Menz Shed) but accessible to/for everyone.
LiVS worked with Te Puna Auaha and helped find their initial site when they were just starting out. As they’ve grown it was clear they would need a bigger space! LiVS then supported negotiations and the arrangement of a licence agreement with Lyttleton Port Company for a space on Norwich Street. Te Puna Auaha expect to move their containers and project HQ onto this site soon!
