No8 Wire Week
No8 Wire Week is an annual mid-winter programme of free/affordable events to encourage community resilience, DIY resourcefulness and environmental responsibility through fun, hands-on events and workshops. It's a great way to celebrate local talent, inspire sustainability and learn practical ways to reduce environmental impacts.
Held from 27 June to 29 July, the 2020 series includes a diverse range of practical workshops and community-led events including: kai and kōrero; plastic free, regenerative agriculture and digital workshops; a repair cafe; crafts and much more.
Conversations on climate change, community assessment panels, emergency management and resilience also provide a forum to listen to the community and look at what we can do together.
Events are aimed at increasing resilience, skills and building community.
Many events are also suitable for children and young adults and most are free to attend, with a small charge to cover materials on a couple events.
You can download the programme, or hard copies are available from Council libraries and service centres.
You can book through our No8 Wire Week events and you can call the council 0800 486 486 if you need assistance with this. We encourage people to book now as spaces for many of the workshops will be limited.
