They might be black and white in the wild but a waddle of colourful penguins will be coming to Christchurch this summer – and you can help choose the final line-up.

The Pop Up Penguin project will see 115 specially designed sculptures located across the city from November.

The Wild in Art trail will include penguins painted by 50 established and up and coming artists and they will be in place for nine weeks, giving locals and visitors the chance to see them all.

Among the artists taking part is Indonesian artist Zulfirman Syah who survived the March 15 mosque attacks.

Stuff is inviting you to help commission one of the sculptures by voting for your favourite from five design finalists. Voting can be done here from midday on Monday until midday on Sunday, September 27.

What has your experience with Christchurch City Council been like?

In a bid to overturn a scathing approval rating, Christchurch City Council is making moves to create a new residents’ forum.

The council says it wants people to feel they are being listened to and their views are respected. It also wants more people to trust the council’s decision-making process.

In May, the council released its annual residents’ survey, showing just half of the city’s residents were satisfied with the services it provided – down from 62 per cent last year.

Some 23 per cent of respondents were dissatisfied with council's performance and 27 per cent were neutral. It is the lowest result since 2007, when the question was first asked as part of the survey.

How do you feel about the council's performance? And will a new forum help? Give us your thoughts below.
