Climate impact statement

The Auckland Performing Arts Centre at Western Springs

Incorporated Society

Activity focus:

Arts and culture

Conflicts of interest:

None identified

Project: Upgrading one of TAPAC’s office computers

Location:

The Auckland Performing Arts Centre at Western Springs, 100 Motions Road, Western Springs

Summary:

A security review recommended that TAPAC urgently upgrade all equipment that is at least seven years old, including our server, internet router, network switch, computer hardware and software. The costs for the project upgrade, including labour (charged at charity rates) is $20, 551. This application is for funding of $2,740, which would enable us to upgrade one of our four office computers to a lap-top. This would allow one of our staff members to work flexibly within TAPAC’S venue (e.g. from the theatre or studios) and more easily at home, when necessitated by Covid.

Dates:

01/12/2021 - 20/12/2021

Community benefits

Identified community outcomes:

 

TAPAC’s community users will benefit from this computer upgrade because it will help to ensure that TAPAC’s classes, programmes and events run smoothly and efficiently in all alert levels. 
 
TAPAC holds a lot of sensitive personal data of our users (e.g. names, addresses, bank account details). Upgrading our systems will better protect the privacy and data of our community users.
 
Switching to laptops will benefit TAPAC’s users by ensuring that staff can work anywhere. This is particularly important in a Covid environment, when TAPAC takes many of our classes online. Ensuring that our classes can continue in all alert levels is vital for the wellbeing of our users, as evidenced by feedback we received:
 
 “It gives me joy and keeps me sane in this insane world.”
 “It has helped sustain me throughout this time.”
 
Security threats aren't just an issue with losing data, they can also be very costly to fix and our IT providers have advised us that we urgently need to upgrade our systems to prevent the system collapsing. Fixing the problem before a system collapse, will ensure that TAPAC can dedicate its limited funds to providing more performing arts programmes and services for the community.

Alignment with local board priorities:

 

·     Provide opportunities to connect communities, through creative and diverse arts, sports, events, and community activities

 

TAPAC exists to provide opportunities for the community to connect through the performing arts.
 
Typically, over 180,000 Aucklanders of all ages, abilities and ethnicities come to TAPAC annually to learn, rehearse, create, perform and watch shows.
 
A multitude of community organisations rely on TAPAC for rehearsal, performance and social spaces, from Prayas Theatre (who stage South East Asian theatre works), to StarJam (who provide performance opportunities for children with disabilities), and groups from many different ethnicities who come to TAPAC to learn African, Middle Eastern, Spanish and Chinese folk dance.
 
We provide work opportunities for over 30 performing arts tutors who run high-quality classes attended by thousands of students. 
 
TAPAC has a small core team who work tirelessly to ensure that all of our programmes and events run smoothly and that our community is supported to engage in the arts.
 
There is a looming issue that threatens to disrupt the professional service that TAPAC’s team offers to the community – our ageing computers and outdated IT systems.
 
A recent security analysis of TAPAC’s IT systems identified a number of serious risks. TAPAC’s computers are all at least seven years old and they are vulnerable to cyber-attacks because they are no longer supported by Microsoft.  Our old computers are so slow they are also hindering the team’s productivity. Some PCs are so sluggish, they are unable to open any images. This is incredibly frustrating for the team, who work so hard to support our many tutors, students and community hirers.  
 
Additionally, TAPAC’s valiant efforts to keep classes and programmes going online throughout Covid-19 lockdowns are being hindered by the fact TAPAC’s computers are PCs and cannot be easily removed from TAPAC. Staff have been forced to use their personal laptops from home during lockdowns. This makes logging into TAPAC’s server remotely a real challenge and a lot of time is 
wasted because the team can’t easily access TAPAC’s vital information. 
 
We are extremely worried that TAPAC’s outdated IT systems pose a significant threat to our operations. They make us vulnerable to cyber-attack and data breaches, our community users’ personal data is potentially at risk, and the network could collapse at any time. 
 
Extensive research indicates that cyber security issues pose a serious threat to the not-for-profit sector because many organisations are working with sub-standard and outdated tools. Internationally, cyber-attacks against charities are growing at an alarming rate as cybercriminals take advantage of the datasets many non-profits have on file. Earlier this year, Oxfam Australia announced it had suffered a data breach after a malicious third party gained unauthorised access to the charity’s database and leaked the personal data of its users. 
 
Our IT providers have advised us that, in order to avoid a ‘catastrophe’, we urgently need to upgrade our hardware and software.  We are seeking your support to help us upgrade our IT systems and enable a switch from PCs top laptops to help us better support the community engage with the performing arts in all alert levels.

Project: Kāinga Pukapuka - Home Libraries

Location:

6 schools in the Waitematā area

Summary:

The Kāinga Pukapuka - Home Library project gives children who might not have many books at home, 20 brand new books to grow their own home library. The value of each library is $525. Many of the books are about inspirational Kiwi and Pasifika role models and are provided by Reading Warrior. The purpose of the project is to flood our homes with books.

Community benefits

Identified community outcomes:

 

Whānau and tamariki wellbeing: books bring families together through bedtime reading, sharing of related stories, learning about positive role models from the same cultural background. Parents who read is great role modelling for young people and the books are designed to be appealing to readers of all ages, even reluctant readers. Realising rangatahi potential: young people who read well have greater resilience, empathy and educational achievement. The books in the project feature Māori and Pasifika role models in a range of fields including medicine, science, literature and sport. As well as opening rangatahi and families minds to exciting future options they have, it counters negative stereotyping about young people often encountered in the media. Some of the books are bilingual (Samoan, Niuean, Tuvaluan and Tongan) and these books also feature audio versions so children can listen to the stories being read in those languages. One of the books - Kickin' It with Winston Reid - contains frequent use of te reo Māori. The biographies of Lisa Carrington and Stacey Waaka also feature use of pepeha and other concepts relevant to Māori. This enhances language retention and increases cultural awareness and pride.

Alignment with local board priorities:

 

·     Provide accessible and inclusive opportunities and services that meet the needs of our diverse communities

 

This project will gift books to families in the community. Each family will receive 20 brand new books to start or enhance their own kāinga pukapuka/home library. Children will be enriched and inspired by the positive stories of achievement and success by  
Māori and Pasifika role models and heroic figures in the books. Books connect young people to worlds beyond what they see every day and open their minds to possibilities, especially when they can see people in the books who come from similar backgrounds as them. By having so many books at home reading mileage will increase and literacy levels improve. For many of the young people, and possibly other family members, a new love for reading will develop. Literacy is a vital part of healthy living, not only in order to do well at school but in being able to be active participants in society.

Demographics

Māori outcomes:

Māori involvement in the design/concept, Māori focus - tikanga (practices), mātauranga (knowledge), reo (language), Māori participation - Māori priority group, target group, high representation or Māori staff deliveringDr Valance Smith (Ngāpuhi, Waikato, Ngāti Haina, Ngāti Pākehā) of AUT assisted me with designing the concept and gifted the name "Kāinga Pukapuka". There is some use of te reo Māori and Māori concepts in the biographies of Winston Reid, Lisa Carrington and Stacey Waaka. Because of the subject content of the books it's likely there will be many Māori whānau receiving packs of books. Teachers and Leadership teams in the schools will select the families they believe the books should go to.

Additional information to support the application:

Many children are trailing other children in literacy in Aotearoa. I'm committed to changing this, ensuring all children in Aotearoa have the same opportunities. This program seeks to do that, providing books for all ages, helping communities to share their own stories – often in their home language. Department of Corrections statistics say 60% of prisoners have literacy below NCEA Level One. This shows how important literacy is in a young person's life. Through my work, programs, and engagement with community we are making a real difference and creating genuine and generational change.

Project: Rituals of Destruction

Location:

Auckland Town Hall Concert Chamber

Summary:

Tapping into the unique ability of artists to channel the emotions of current times and express both dark and light, Rituals of Destruction is a powerful new work by award-winning avant-garde performance artist, Alexa Wilson. The premiere of this new work, which explores themes of mass crisis, and the global phenomena of mass protests, collective resistance, and the traumatic effects of a pandemic, premieres on November 27, 2021 in Christchurch, as part of TinyFest Christchurch with an Auckland season, in collaboration with Auckland Live, playing at Auckland Town Hall Concert Chamber on February 9 & 10, 2022.
 
Using dance as a transformative practice, while employing theatrical and installation mediums, this new and exciting work deconstructs a  visual and performance aesthetics.

In Covid-19 the performing arts have suffered the most out of all the arts so presenting live performance projects not only brings the performing arts communities together it offers hope for projects that are successful to survive and to thrive through and beyond this time.
 
We are employing a range of people within the project such as a producer, technicians, publicists, designers, and venue staff. 
 
The resilience required to successfully deliver projects in this climate within performing arts where lockdowns put the industry into chaos whereby postponing, canceling or rescheduling is difficult to do in an uncertain future climate. To present live work, which also offers the chance to reflect and engage in social commentary within the climate gives people the ability to engage in dialogue and discourse within the arts to create connection and discussion.
 
Rituals of Destruction offers to deliver these things by engaging with topical themes and offering space for artists and audiences to connect in an embodied space where movement forward is pathed with hope and discussion and dialogue about the arts possible in such a tumultuous time. The body arts offer a chance for experience which has been deprived during long lockdowns, particularly in Auckland.

Alignment with local board priorities:

 

·     Creative industries are enabled and sustained

 

The live performance project that this application supports, Rituals of Destruction by esteemed choreographer Alexa Wilson, enables the arts during this precarious time in Covid-19 to happen, to thrive and sustain itself during 2022. Performing arts have been the most affected of all the arts during the pandemic and this grant helps to cover the project costs so that the project can be delivered to the public successfully and support the arts during a time of hardship.
 
Alexa Wilson successfully delivered Experimental Dance Week Aotearoa in 2020 as the only live festival in Aotearoa since the pandemic hit with the support of Auckland Live and this year will be presenting her own work, postponed by the 2021 lockdown to early 2021 also with Auckland Live at Auckland Town Hall Concert Chamber. This work is Creative NZ funded but has very high venue costs particularly during the pandemic, and with box office for live performance slightly precarious during the pandemic with alert level changes Auckland Council grant support would ensure the project can be delivered safely.
 
Alexa Wilson has been creating innovative live performances for 20 years and has spent the last decade based in Berlin presenting work internationally within Europe, Asia and North America. This is her first independent live-work back based in Aotearoa which is interdisciplinary and she is known to inspire innovation within the live arts in New Zealand now with international experience. She has created works with Footnote NZ Dance Company and Touch Compass Mixed Ability dance among many other projects over the last years. 
 
Presenting independently in the Covid-19 climate is precarious given the possibility of outbreaks and lockdowns which bring postponement and alert level alterations that affect audience capacities. Meeting a budget based on box office in this climate is also a risk in Covid-19 with these changes, with venue costs high for Auckland venues. 
 
Supporting this project enables live projects which are funded and already created during this unstable time to still flourish and bring audiences to see work that sustains the creative industries. Having delivered Experimental Dance Week Aotearoa 2 years in a row to sold-out and full audiences we expect this work to also have a demand as a gap in the arts market for more innovative work to be filled.
 
With the success of her previous works, some of which have won awards (Weg: A-Way, 4 Auckland Fringe Awards, 2011, Toxic White Elephant Shock, Tup Lang Award, 2009) and also Experimental Dance Week Aotearoa we understand that there is a desire for this more innovative work in Aotearoa during this time and supporting this to be successful helps to sustain the arts and its most inspiring artists.

Financial information

Amount requested:

$3000.00

Requesting grant for:

We are requesting funding for the coverage of the venue Auckland Town Hall Concert Chamber. Its far more expensive to hire than we had projected with a seating block that needs to be installed. Because a CNZ grant requires that you project and meet a predicted box office, it is precarious to rely on a budget already which requires a box office and also during a Covid-19 climate where audiences may fluctuate with alert levels changed. We now have an unforeseen extra cost for a seating configuration for a dance show which has created a problem with meeting our budget.

If part funded, how would you make up the difference:

We would take the amount which is going over our budget for the venue out of the choreographer's fee as there is little other option but to do that, which means they do not get paid the full amount for the work they have done, but we need the venue so are willing to do that given that the Covid wage subsidy has been providing for artists during this time when we cannot work at all.

Project: Worldwide Knit in Public Day 2022

Location:

MOTAT

Summary:

This participatory community art event at MOTAT celebrating WorldWide Knit in Public Day on 11 June 2022 by decorating a tram (inside and out) and the three tram stops along the route, with 350+m of bunting made prior to the event in 2020 by 150 makers (individuals and groups). 445 people rode the tram this year and we have been asked to run the event again next year. Knitting and crocheting participants (and others) will ride the tram and explore, inspire and innovate within their craft. Knitzone, an area will be set aside inside MOTAT will be the site of workshops run by volunteers and a place for knitters and crocheters to meet, and the public to learn the craft.

Community benefits

Identified community outcomes:

 

The community benefits from this project as it has a strong focus on partnership, inclusion and diversity and contributes to building (bonding and linking) social capital and social cohesion. By including anyone who can, or wants to learn, to knit or crochet, everyone’s work is included, and celebrated. It encourages conversations among strangers and intergenerationally, relationships to be formed, skills shared, and a cherished heritage craft celebrated in a colourful public way. The 2021 event built a sense of community belonging and inclusion in a worldwide event which will be consolidated in 2022. Celebrating knitting in a public way, encourages pride on community connections, in-depth conversations about the craft; colour, technique, yarns and heritage and intercultural exchange. 
There are at least 7 knitting groups in the Waitemata local Board area and at least 11 groups in neighbouring Albert Eden, plus countless individual knitters and crocheters. The project will further build connections between these individuals and groups. 
Through free tram rides and access to MOTAT for those 65+ will increase awareness of MOTAT as an accessible destination, where there’s a place for everyone. Connecting generations; not only children, parents, grandparents, but also second and third wave feminists who share a passion.

Alignment with local board priorities:

 

·     Provide opportunities to connect communities, through creative and diverse arts, sports, events, and community activities

 

WWKIP Day is the largest knitter run event in the world. Each event is unique and celebrates and shares skills. It’s a way to show that people from all parts of society and all generations can create together in a distinct way. This event is free to the public and provides a unique opportunity for crafters to be out in public to celebrate their skills and to learn from others. It is important that children can be inspired by seeing their flags strung on the bunting and be inspired to learn more or learn the crafts. And without older people and all the knitting grannies, we wouldn’t have the wealth of knitting and crocheting knowledge that has fuelled the resurgence of fibre craft that we do.
 
This year 445 people rode the tram and 250 people went through the Knitting Zone throughout the day to participate in demonstrations, and engage with each other. Because the trams are free to ride and entrance to MOTAT is free for Gold Card Holders, this event, which is accessible by public transport, is a great way for women (mainly) to meet and celebrate. We are aware that there is an increasing number of isolated, older women living in the city centre. This will be a way for them to meet others and revive old skills. 
 
Our experience in 2021 showed that the event, and the workshops leading up to it, were attended by a wide and diverse range of participants (in terms of age (3-84), ethnicity and gender identity. People made new friends and connections and willingly taught each other. 
 
The event will be widely promoted on social media and via flyers distributed across the city, including through local yarn businesses and at knitting events. 
 
This event will be aimed at everyone but knitting and crocheting are still largely the domain of women and girls; although not exclusively! We are aware that there is an increasing number of older, isolated women living in the inner city. Connections will be made with Creative Ageing and other inner city organisations to run a series of workshops at an inner city venue (probably the Central Library) for this group of women who will then be able to see their work at an accessible event. The use of public transport will be promoted which will enable them to participate in a free full day celebratory event. 
 
Volunteers will be offered a voucher to run skills workshops in the Knitzone. These will be purchased from yarn stores that are locally owned and run by women entrepreneurs.

-Increased visibility for Live Art as a form allowing growth in audiences and therefore contributing to sustainable careers for artists within Auckland. 
-Community building for the arts community in the wake of an incredibly emotionally and financially traumatic time in which we have not had full access to community support systems
-A chance for audiences to celebrate work that is often left on the fringes. This is for all the weird kids of Auckland!
-This simple aim of this festival  to provide accessible and vibrant arts experiences to Auckland CBD audiences in order to invite the audience back into  participating with the arts and fostering reconnection after the latest lockdown.  
-It allows us to draw people into the CBD to rediscover their city and offer a different perspective on what it means to live through a Global pandemic.  Importantly it allows artists to do what they do best - reinvigorate communities and rebuild narratives in the wake of collective traumatic events.

Alignment with local board priorities:

 

·     Provide opportunities to connect communities, through creative and diverse arts, sports, events, and community activities

 

This is an application towards the delivery of a new performance festival to take place at Auckland's Basement Theatre in February 2022. Festival of Live Art {F.O.L.A[AKL]} is a festival celebrating live art in Tamaki Makaurau. It provides a desperately needed platform for the many artists in Auckland creating experimental and innovative performance.
Live Art is performance work that sits in between the traditional genres of theatre, dance, visual art etc.It is a deeply innovative and forward looking genre of performance, but one that is often overlooked or dismissed in favor of more conventional performance. Live
Art describes work that doesn’t easily fit into any category (eg. dance, theatre, visual art). This is work at the margin, work at the cutting edge. Live Art offers a haven to artists whose work doesn’t easily fit into the mainstream.
This festival aims of create a platform to celebrate the work of these artists as well as create a space for the theatre, dance, vogue and visual arts communities to connect and interact. Thereby encouraging the continuation of cross art form pollination and collaboration.
F.O.L.A [AKL] features a thrilling program of 25 artists and collectives selected from an overwhelming 80 applications. The works in F.O.L.A [AKL] come from dancers, theatre makers, installation artists, voguers, krumpers, poets, lighting designers, musicians and
comedians. Featuring 10 full length shows as well as a free public program of installations, workshops and one on one
experiences.
The program of artists represent a diverse cross section of the alternative arts community in Auckland and it is part of the kaupapa of the festival to platform and celebrate vital and historically marginalized voices. This includes many artists from the LGBTQIA+ community, Maori and Pacific artists, as well as migrant communities.

Project: Office Flooring Upgrades

Location:

283 Karangahape Road, Auckland Central, Auckland 1010

Summary:

Nightsong is seeking to further serve local arts organisations and the community through the upgrade of its office flooring. Flooring upgrades will include the purchase of a 100% NZ-made sustainable wool carpet to further facilitate the use of Nightsong’s offices as a multi-functional venue for workshops, reads, rehearsals, photoshoots, functions and supporters’ events, both for use by the company and the wider arts community. Currently the floor is bare concrete and has bad sound bleed to the artists’ studios below. Acoustically the space is noisy –which is problematic for video and sound recording. Additionally, carpet would improve insulation. We have chosen to design the use so carpet can be rolled if needed for a specific purpose to retain multi-use versatility.

Nightsong is seeking to fortify our strength and resilience as a sustainable organisation. We are seeking to reduce expenses to ensure we are operating cost-effectively. The proposed flooring upgrades will reduce Nightsong’s costs to rent suitable rehearsal and function spaces as required for the development of work and hosting of key supporter events. Furthermore, upgraded facilities will provide much needed space for other local arts organisations, benefiting the community in real terms. 
 
We have found using our offices as a more flexible space has allowed our creative work to continue in a more resilient fashion over the covid era. It is a space we can have confidence in Health and Safety measures. Our new work ‘A STAB IN THE DARK’ that premieres in March has had all its development workshops, reads and design prototyping occur in the space over the past 18 months. It has also on occasion been ‘rented’ for events by other users as a cost-effective option, whilst providing some revenue to a charitable organisation that has had its revenue adversely effected by Covid. We have and will continue to gift use of the space to creative endeavours that do not have resource.

Alignment with local board priorities:

 

·     Creative industries are enabled and sustained

 

Nightsong is an Auckland theatre company based in the city, providing unique, high-quality, relevant and accessible NZ theatre, benefiting the Waitematā Local Board area by contributing to the local creative industries. We employ actors, arts administrators, arts practitioners and collaborators from diverse art-forms, fostering an innovative and productive creative economy. We present our works predominantly in the CBD, adding to the creative economy and providing knock-on benefits for local restaurants and hospitality institutions (pre and post show activity). Our next production in March is at Q’s theatre’s mainstage – Rangatira.
 
We lead and participate in a range of community and youth outreach and engagement activities, providing Aucklanders of all ages, cultures, genders, ethnicities, socio-economic backgrounds, and locations with access to high-quality NZ theatre, theatrical education and experiences – including an ongoing focus on training and mentoring rangatahi and emerging practitioners. 
 
Nightsong supports community arts practice, mostly notably through partnerships with Toi Oro mental health project, with Arts Access Aotearoa pilot performing arts programme at Korowai Manaaki (Youth Justice Residential Facility – Wiri), and with Depot Artspace Wayfind Creative programme, which support vulnerable members of the community through creativity, artistic opportunities/projects, classes, and guidance/mentoring/workshops. 
 
We support other arts organisations in the local area that have been impacted by Covid-19 with free use of shared office space, including Brilliant Adventures, Elephant Publicity, and PANNZ.

 

Demographics

Māori outcomes:

Māori participation - Māori priority group, target group, high representation or Māori staff delivering Nightsong's provides opportunities for Auckland rangatahi to see our work, regardless of economic status. Our recent presentation of TE PŌ included a schools matinee performance with 7 Auckland secondary schools attending on a highly subsidised ticket package. 94% of students were drawn from lower decile schools where Māori students comprise a high proportion of the role. 
 
We have applied to the central committee of Creative Communities for funding support towards the presentation of a no cost viewing opportunity for lower decile schools in the central region for our next production A STAB IN THE DARK. These schools often have a higher proportion of Māori on the role than higher decile schools – i.e. Auckland Girls Grammar at 24%.

Our office is located on K Road which is well served by public transport, by the newly upgraded cycle ways, and in due course via the soon to be built train station on the city rail link. Nightsong's office is easily accessible from street level via lift access. Nightsong has developed a radio play of Te Pō with Radio New Zealand which has made the work accessible to more people and has been broadcast nationally. Nightsong works closely with our major partners- Auckland Arts Festival- to provide accessibility options for all presentations. - Our venues in Tāmaki Makaurau in 2021/2022 are accessibility friendly, with a high level of transparency and communication available for patrons with accessibility needs planning their visit.

The installation of 100% NZ-made sustainable wool carpet supports the health and wellbeing of Nightsong staff and other community members using our offices through the use of a natural, biodegradable and renewable product. Wool carpet is 100% sustainable, naturally hypo-allergenic, durable and easy to clean, supporting a healthy environment through its natural air filtering capabilities and sound absorption. Wool contributes to energy savings as less heating is required to maintain a comfortable indoor environment, saving energy and reducing the impact on our planet.
 
While not specifically related to the upgrade of office flooring, we consistently promote these messages as an organisation. We undertake a host of sustainability measures and have a keen focus on staff wellness. We are a low carbon company. Our GM has an MSc in Sustainability and attends Waitematā low carbon network meetings. Our staff are bus/active transport users. We recycle, re-use and compost all food scraps. Our community engagement activities and workshops promote active lifestyles - acting and stunt work are both forms of physical and mental fitness. We operate smoke-free office, rehearsal and production environments. Our upcoming production where we contract over 20 creative practitioners is piloting a contracted ban on single use plastic bottles.

The purchase of 100% NZ-made wool carpet required for the upgrade of Nightsong's office flooring to create a multi-purpose facility. To keep the space flexible, we have designed the implementation to be in two sections that can be rolled back and therefore there is no need for ‘installation’.

If part funded, how would you make up the difference:

We have applied for funding support to purchase all of the carpet required to ensure a fully functional, multi-purpose rehearsal, photographic studio and function space. If only part of our request is funded, we would seek further funding from other sources. We would be extremely grateful to the Waitematā Local Board for full support, as our funding requests with other trusts and foundations are for support towards other key elements of our high-quality productions, such as venue hire, access initiatives and other production costs. Additionally, many Auckland gaming trusts are currently ‘closed’ due to lack of revenue in level 4/3.

Project: Gratis Christmas Response

Location:

63 Great North Road, Grey Lynn, and delivered to whānau on streets of Auckland CBD

Summary:

Historically on our final Gratis evening of the year we throw a Christmas party for the street whānau, though for this year we are planning a response that can be activated safely and legally under all Covid 19 lockdown levels. (We have essential worker status for operation in Level 4). Quite simply we want to finish what has been another turbulent year for the street whānau by giving out Christmas care packs that are generous (including some Christmas goodies) as well as practical (including essentials).

Community benefits

Identified community outcomes:

 

There are three benefits from this project:
- Firstly, we would meet some practical needs for street whānau as they head into the Christmas break that sees many community meals take a break. In the packs, we would include; toiletries, non-perishable food, multi-vitamins, socks (#1 request from homeless people), list of what community meals are operating during the Christmas holidays.
- Secondly, the community would benefit from the special Christmas items added that go beyond the bare necessity practical support they usually receive. It is a small way of spreading Christmas cheer that lets them know they are seen and cared for. So, in the packs, we would also include; a Christmas-styled dinner and dessert, Christmas chocolates, handwritten cards and a small gift.
- Thirdly, we have approximately 40 Gratis volunteers from our church of approximately 400. We will be inviting the whole church to get involved with the care packs by writing Christmas cards, wrapping gifts, assembling the packs, cooking the meal etc. Their involvement is an opportunity to expose them to Gratis, which could result in more volunteers for the future and increased financial support from the congregation which would lessen our need for external funding.

Alignment with local board priorities:

 

·     Support sustainable solutions to end homelessness

 

Our three communities initiatives (Gratis, Celebrate Recovery, and the Women's Connect Group) are all in support of the homeless whānau. Between these initiatives, we engage with over 130 unique individuals per week and in a range of ways: for some the food we provide on a Monday and Wednesday is a necessity to alleviate hunger, for some women the Tuesday connect group is the only place they can relax and let their guard down feeling warm, secure and listened to, and for our whānau struggling with addictions Celebrate Recovery is a community of recovering addicts they can be a part of on their journey towards sobriety.
As a church placed in Waitemata this is the community we call our 'neighbours' and we are always open to new ideas and initiatives that will respond to other needs that arise. For example, currently, we are thinking about employment options for a number of street whānau who we have particularly good relationships with and who have been faithful volunteers for Gratis for this past year.

Demographics

Māori outcomes:

Māori focus - tikanga (practices), mātauranga (knowledge), reo (language), Māori participation - Māori priority group, target group, high representation or Māori staff delivering Māori are represented both in our volunteer team and in those we serve. 
In terms of tikanga, mātauranga and reo we are on a journey as a whole church. At Gratis we encourage te reo, often asking someone from the community to 'open' with a karakia (blessing) before the meal begins. We have knowledge of appropriate greetings in te reo and our tikanga in our facility (Community hall) is acknowledgment of the whenua we are on and tangata who have come before us.

Accessible to people with disabilities

Yes Two ways: the first is that the primary place we will hand these out is on the street side, which is accessible for most to access. We are also in touch with some people with limited mobility and often go to them. We would do this on this occasion too. - Two ways: the first is that the primary place we will hand these out is on the street side, which is accessible for most to access.

Summary:

In support of the disadvantaged 760 year 13 secondary school students in lower decile schools across the Waitemata Local Board area, Blue Light wishes to produce and distribute its 2022 Street Smart Handbook.  This hard copy printed resource covers material designed to enable informed, positive choices by this group of students who are in a unique transitionary environment, with COVID lockdowns leaving them feeling unsafe, unconnected, and their learning disproportionately impacted.
Street Smart includes contact details for key government and service agencies in students’ communities and how to access essential COVID-19 resources with links to Maori and Pasifika support services.

Community benefits

Identified community outcomes:

 

The benefits of the hard copy Street Smart Handbook to these 760 students and their families/whanau are:
• Access to key accurate life skills information not contained in the NZ Curriculum, such as mental health illnesses, exposure to smoking, vaping, alcohol and drugs.
• A printed resource, which they, and members of their extended family can readily access, as opposed to information only accessible on the internet.
• Contacts and referral details for key government and service agencies to support them both now in this time of COVID and into the uncertain future.
• Accurate information on COVID and where to obtain COVID resources in their community.
• Career planning information at a time where their attendance at school may be intermittent and support that they may have gained from a teacher/school staff is not possible available to them.

Alignment with local board priorities:

 

·     Provide accessible and inclusive opportunities and services that meet the needs of our diverse communities

 

Many Year 13 secondary school students, at a key transitional time, have had inequities exacerbated due to lockdowns - whether through lack of a suitable device for learning, poor or no connectivity, or a lack of a suitable space or person to support their learning. Blue Light, in this application wishes to apply for the production and printing of the Street Smart Handbook for 760 secondary school students from lower decile schools in the Waitemata Local Board area.
 
This hand book is specifically for Senior students studying for NCEA qualifications, Māori and Pacific learners, and students in low-decile schools, These students report their wellbeing and health and safety being most effected by each subsequent lockdown with nearly a third reported feeling less positive about their futures and anxiety around their health and safety increasing.
 
Street Smart is a unique hard copy resource covers material designed to support informed, positive choices by this group who are in a unique transitionary environment, with COVID lockdowns leaving them feeling unsafe, unconnected, and their learning disproportionately impacted. The handbook has intergenerational benefits as its format, and content is designed for use either in schools or at home allowing family and whanau to benefit also from the information contained within it.
 
Street Smart covers information not contained within the NZ Curriculum, and focuses on important life skills, tertiary training and upskilling opportunities, career services, and contact details for key government and service agencies in their community. COVID-19 resources are also featured, with links to Maori, and Pasifika support services

Demographics

Māori outcomes:

Māori participation - Māori priority group, target group, high representation or Māori staff delivering Maori are one of the target audiences for the Street Smart Handbook due to the low percentage who have either internet connectivity or a device that is not a phone for learning and gaining information. This is evident where over 50% of Maori families experienced barriers to their youth accessing education, and gaining accurate information on the virus. Blue Light's Street Smart is a printed resource, removing the technology barriers and supplying information on a range of issues affecting both Maori youth and their whanau/families.

Accessible to people with disabilities

Yes Blue Light through providing the Street Smart Handbook online, as well as in a printed format, enables youth experiencing disability choice and flexibility in how they prefer to access the information provided. Blue Light's online version will be formatted so that text to speech applications can be utilised by and for youth who prefer to have the material spoken to them. - Blue Light through providing the Street Smart Handbook online, as well as in a printed format, enables youth experiencing disability choice and flexibility in how they prefer to access the information provided.

Conflicts of interest:

None identified

Project: Garden shed, equipment and noticeboard project

Location:

92 Surrey Cres, Grey Lynn

Summary:

1) Purchasing a garden shed will provide secure storage for our gardening equipment. The lawnmower and two wheelbarrows will enable us to manage our own garden maintenance more economically and to enable community participation in gardening and maintenance, providing food for our own community lunches, seniors' group, our cooking classes (starting Feb 2022), and for distribution to the disadvantaged in our wider community. 
2) Purchasing a noticeboard will allow us to keep our visitors informed about activities and support on our site, and provide advertising space as well as a central place for sign-ups for our weekly cooking classes.

Community benefits

Identified community outcomes:

 

1) The garden shed and equipment will contribute to growing the fresh produce in Te Maara (our community garden) for the benefit of those attending our community lunches, cooking classes. The produce will also be distributed amongst those in need in the wider community (e.g. local accommodation lodges, families whose breadwinners have lost their jobs).
There will be learning for disadvantaged members of our community about gardening and cooking  - preparation, planting, tending, harvesting and preparing for cooking, plus recycling and composting using our existing systems.  
Our site will be well maintained which will enhance the experience of the frequent visitors to our gardens and labyrinth.
The new equipment will facilitate harvesting, maintenance and gardening, much of which is done by the local community coming together to help while enjoying the companionship of fellow gardeners.
2) Members of the community who visit our site will be informed by our noticeboard providing information about activities, Covid restrictions, advertising, etc.

Alignment with local board priorities:

 

·     Empower our communities to become resilient

 

1) Our purchase of a garden shed will enable us to securely store the equipment used to maintain our site, and to enable gardening work involving members of our wider community whanau who value the opportunity to contribute to St Columba. Having our own lawnmower will enable us to save costs by not engaging an external mowing company; the wheelbarrows are necessary for our community gardening, and for maintenance of the garden such as annual mulching of gardens, tree planting, debris removal, etc, which are done in 'working bee' style involving many people from the wider community.
We are also preparing for a February 2022 start-up of a cooking class for disadvantaged people in the community. This will include sessions in the community garden to familiarise them with basic planting, harvesting and preparation of everyday produce and herbs for cooking. These classes will empower members of our community to provide for themselves and their families, and give them skills to grow basic plants for consumption or flowers for enjoyment. This will provide companionship, physical exercise and learning about gardening, and increase their self-esteem, self-confidence and resilience in the face of the grinding poverty they experience. Having the right storage and equipment will support this initiative.
2) Purchasing the noticeboard will allow St Columba to post information clearly to inform those who use or visit our community centre, about onsite activities and support that are available.
