Supporting creative projects in Dunedin, New Zealand.
Collaborative conversations for
inclusive, creative city
Creative Dunedin is a citizen-initiated effort to use blogging, social media, and strategic hashtags to encourage Dunedin citizens to share their views and ideas with others about specific topics of interest to our city. We are collaborating with, but are independent of, the Dunedin City Council and Charcoalblue.
Currently, we are focussing on two projects, each with an associated hashtag.
#GeorgeStDunedin: the redevelopment of George Street, Dunedin.
#DunedinPerformingArts: the future of the Performing Arts in Dunedin.
#CreativeDunedin: the overall hashtag.
