Get hands on with No8 Wire Week
Kāpiti Coast residents have the opportunity to get hands on over the next couple of weeks, with No8 Wire Week offering a number of local events aimed at encouraging community resilience, DIY resourcefulness and environmental responsibility.
The Council-led initiative runs from 14-23 July, and will include workshops and excursions, repair cafe days, an eco art exhibition, and a community banquet featuring speakers.
“Winter is a great time of year for learning and sharing,” says Sustainable Communities Co-ordinator Vanessa Crowe, “and No8 Wire Week will have something for everyone. There are so many ways we can be more resilient and resourceful, help the environment and connect with other people. This event is a celebration of that, and we hope Kāpiti residents make the most of it.”
No8 Wire Week kicks off on Friday 14 July with ‘Food for Thought’, a community banquet and speaking event. A range of speakers will present their work, experiences and insights on a range of social and environmental issues. Their challenge will be to present in the PechaKucha 20x20 format, which involves speakers showing 20 images for 20 seconds and talking to these images as they advance.
