We Say/You Say: Street Art

Thomas Campbell Reporter from Kāpiti Observer

Kia ora Kāpiti,

What's your opinion on street art? Are there any spots in your community that could do with a mural?

Construction sites and other disused structures around Wellington are getting facelifts, with local artists putting their touch on areas in a state of flux.

Wellington based artists Xoë Hall, Miriama Grace-Smith and Gina Kiel make up part of the Love Local: City Artwork initiative, with their work set to add vibrancy to revamps around the city.

The collaboration between Wellington City Council and WellingtonNZ has $60,000 which covers printing, installation and commission.

Library Restrictions Inequitable

Marie from Waikanae

I was surprised to be asked for my vaccine pass at the local library this weekend. I would have thought public libraries were exempt, along with supermarkets pharmacies etc. They are public spaces afterall, which ratepayers, vaccinated or not, contribute to.
While I appreciate the wishes of Council to keep staff safe, in reality the risk posed by a library visit is low. With over 92% vaccinated in the region, measures such as a limit on numbers, masks, screens and distancing will serve to reduce risk. Im curious what the rationale was for this decision. (Though no doubt if I ask, it will be treated as an OIR request and I'll have to wait until next year for a response). It seems like a step too far to me. What do others think?
