Gap Filler - Creative Responses to The Christchurch Earthquakes
This is a great example of how creativity can be a tool for community engagement and something that should be happening in lots more places and not simply as a response to a major disaster.
It provides opportunities not only for artists but develops dialogue with the community about issues that are effecting them and can provide a forum for input into making changes. Much better than the usual dull information and forms to fill in seeking input that councils rely on, and then complain when they get a tiny response. More information about Gap Filler here.
