Place, People, Pizza, uses a network of wood fired ovens across the city to engage with nearby local communities to support and introduce the aims of the Place Partnership Fund. This will be achieved through the delivery of a day of creative activities combined with the making and sharing of pizzas and provide a place for people to connect and actively participate in exploring their space. By providing the opportunity to learn how to use the ovens, make pizzas from scratch, connect with local people, and to participate in creative activities, will put in place the foundations for future involvement and engagement of the local community in their space. The project is funded through Christchurch City Council's Place Partnership Fund which aims to:
Strengthen connections between communities and their places and spaces, to foster inclusion, local identity, shared experience and stewardship.
Build community capacity and active participation in civic life.
Create vibrant and welcoming places and spaces through place-based approaches to public installations or social activity.
Connect people through active collaboration and partnership.
Evolve with the city to address current and future needs.
Act as a testing ground for creative, experimental and innovative ideas.
