Sculp­ture park

Coastal News - - Front Page -

You may have heard that we want to foster a ground swell of sup­port to re­open the sculp­ture park and ar­bore­tum as a freeen­try pub­lic space.

This would en­able many more peo­ple to en­joy it. For that to hap­pen, we need to find long-term cover for the costs of main­tain­ing the park and any health and safety con­cerns.

The month-long cam­paign kicked off Mon­day Jan­uary 22 on the Arts Foun­da­tion’s crowd-fund­ing site Boosted www.boosted.org.nz/projects/share-thes­culp­ture-park to sup­port im­par­tial as­sess­ments of the park’s up­keep and of any safety is­sues.

Crowd-fund­ing and other ini­tia­tives will bring the park back into pub­lic con­scious­ness and reg­is­ter sup­port for its fu­ture use.

If you haven’t been for a while, there are free ‘open days’ An­niver­sary week­end and Wai­tangi Day.

It’s a good time to gather up friends and fam­ily to in­tro­duce them to the park.

We also want to demon­strate the de­gree of sup­port to any po­ten­tial long-term fun­ders by record­ing re­sponses to an on-line sur­vey.

A video of the sculp­ture park can be found on Youtube.
