A not-for-profit corporation the Vision of Renew Northern Wellington Arts & Business Association is to work with communities, property owners, artists, cultural projects, businesses and community groups with the specific focus of activating empty spaces for creative projects. Our Program takes otherwise empty shops, offices, and commercial buildings and makes them available to incubate short term use and encourage long-term leases. They can be used by artists, entrepreneurs, community initiatives, etc. until they become commercially viable or are redeveloped. It is not set up to manage long term uses, own properties or permanently develop sites but to generate activity in buildings until future long term activity happens.
