East x East
East x East is a major piece of Red Zone land that LiVS has on a licence from Land Information New Zealand.
After a year-long pilot project in the same area, LiVS and Land Information New Zealand (LINZ) signed a new contract to continue their partnership to create a space that provides some amenity and acts as a gathering space for the community.
The aim is to fill the area with temporary art projects, local clubs and other events and activities. It’s meant as a temporary space to utilise the land and encourage community involvement whilst plans and preparation for future development are completed.
The exciting community space has been named East x East, to reflect its location in the eastern suburb of Burwood at the eastern end of New Brighton Road.
There are some small pots of seed-funding available to support project ideas and enable various types of activity. Those interested in developing a project for the space should get in contact with LiVS via the link below.
