Ka Pai Creative Forest!
Whether you are a corporate team, student innovator or community group, Creative Forest provides a unique and motivational open source framework to dream big and get cool projects organised and delivered. Now Creative Forest is teaming up with Ka Pai Carterton, supported by the New Zealand government Department of Internal Affairs, to run a community consultation process for the people of Carterton.
Carterton district, in central Wairarapa, is home to over 9,300 inhabitants, more than half of whom reside within the township. The area hosts numerous community groups reflecting a diverse range of interests from the residents who predominantly comprise farmers, younger families and retired folk. So there is a wonderful opportunity to explore a wide canvas of viewpoints about what the community thinks is working, what needs improving and what new things would enhance the town and region.
Ka Pai Carterton is beginning by preparing a plan to foster the community led development of projects and services that will increase connectedness and resilience across the district. This is a chance to gather support for your brilliant idea and receive practical help getting going, using the Creative Forest framework.
Civic artworks? River clean-up? Walking tracks? Weta hotel? Food trucks? VR Centre?
