Placemaking Aotearoa's Kūmara Awards


LiVS Incubator, Cashel Street



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.
