Answering to Arts and Social Enterprise

Please join us Sept 9th from 6:00-8:00pm to meet Candidates for Council and hear from them on their views on the Arts and Social Enterprise.

The evening will be hosted by Jane Gregg. We have shared the following questions in advance with the candidates:

  1. What value do you see the arts having in Christchurch and how will you support the arts?

  2. What value do you see social enterprise having in Christchurch, and how will you support it?

  3. What would the city look like today without the transitional movement post earthquake?

  4. If we excluded any economic measures how would you value the contribution of the arts to our society, our city, our community?

  5. Christchurch is fast becoming the social enterprise centre of New Zealand, reflected in the fact we are hosting the 2017 Social Enterprise World Forum.What seems common practice in UK city councils is for these governance bodies to prioritise social enterprises in all tendering processes to encourage local economies. What are your thoughts around bringing similar policies into CCC?

The first part of the evening will be an opportunity for Council Candidates to share their views on the arts and social enterprise, then we will break into small groups around tables with each of the questions and have a dialogue with the candidates. You will have an opportunity to share your views on the above questions and discuss ways to bring action to the ideas if they are elected to council.

We will post a summary of the event and the Councilor’s responses to the question on our website and share through our newsletter following the event.
