Gap Filler has been set up by a small group of enthusiastic people who have responded in a creative way to the shock and impact of the recent earthquakes on the central city.
They aim to temporarily activate vacant sites within the central city with creative projects, to make for a more interesting, dynamic and vibrant central city.
What a great idea, and plenty of people have been turning out at the site in Colombo Street. Items to decorate the space have come from donations and it all looks so much better than a pile of dust and bricks.
Perhaps ideas from our books and magazines on home and outdoor decorating could also be of use to Gap Filler, (although judging from the site they have done incredibly well on their own!) Or maybe with all this lovely weather you are planning a bit of outdoor living yourself, and realise that the garden area could do with a new lease of life?
