The Government last week announced a new $37.5 million support package aimed at reviving economic, social and cultural activities in Auckland over summer.
Under the Reactivating Tāmaki Makaurau package, 100,000 vouchers will be distributed to families and individuals allowing them to visit Auckland attractions, facilities and cultural venues.
In addition, funding will be available through an Arts and Cultural Events Support Scheme – designed to give event organisers, artists and crew the confidence to proceed with their events.
There is also a Local Activation Programme designed to fund community organisations and businesses to organise events that are free for the public.
The idea is to bring neighbourhoods and town centres back to life. The package also includes extra money for foodbanks. Info: aucklandunlimited.com
