Description

Restoring the Gulf Between Us

The city and region of Tāmaki Makaurau is unique in the world, graced by two harbours and the waters of the Hauraki Gulf, Tikapa Moana.

Wherever we live and work, we have multiple connections to the Gulf, and yet many are unaware of how it sustains us and the challenges it faces.

The precious waters surrounding Tāmaki Makaurau are struggling.

How can we sustain her as she sustains us?

How can we spread the net wide in this moment to create a sea change?






We're searching for 100 Aucklanders who love the Hauraki Gulf to join us in this WATERSHED moment.

Working together, we’ll create a project of scale, substance and impact to awaken more Aucklanders to opportunities to care for and treasure the Hauraki Gulf.

Join us at a fun and energising workshop on Saturday 27 October where you will co-create and mock-up concept ideas, then work together to identify several stand-out concepts that will go into development in 2019.




Project Background
In 2016 Foundation North launched a fund called G.I.F.T (Gulf Innovation Fund Together) to ignite innovative projects and initiatives that have the potential to revive the mauri or life-force of the Hauraki Gulf.

Inspired by this challenge, our project is led by a collective of students and staff from the University of Auckland and practical creative thinkers. Together we are co-creating a movement to source ideas to capture the hearts and minds of everyone who lives and works in Tāmaki Makaurau.

This project received funding from Gulf Innovation Fund Together (G.I.F.T) - a Foundation North initiative, in partnership with the University of Auckland: Faculty of Creative Arts & Industries.
