Placemaking Aotearoa's Kūmara Awards

Location: Cashel Street, City Centre

Date: 2023

Our Role: LiVS Incubator Project


Placemaking Aotearoa's Kūmara Awards are on a mission to celebrate the fabulous placemaking happening all around us. The Awards are a community-driven showcase of outstanding placemaking and a wonderful opportunity to acknowledge the positive impacts of placemaking in our communities.

This was an opportunity to find out more about Placemaking and how a seed of an idea and projects like these contribute to safer and more connected communities.
