Four ways to get involved in Christchurch’s biggest street party, Lean Means – live on Saturday 22 October.
- Calling all musicians, dancers and backyard cricketers! Bring your sweet dance moves, street games and tunes! We are calling out for dancers, musos, performers and sporting clubs to get involved – this is a great chance to show off your skills to thousands. We have a performance pitch and great spots for games and solos buskers. Get in contact with firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Countless studies have shown that volunteers are 39% sexier than general festival goers, 58% happier and are 100% more smug at family dinners having given two hours to a good cause. If you would like to be this sexy, happy and smug please get involved in the spectacular temporary city of Lean Means and email our wonderful volunteer coordinator email@example.com.
- You can join in Christchurch’s biggest street party by participating in the night market at Lean Means. Calling on all upcyclers, second-hand goods traders and recycled material repurposers to come along and sell your wares! Contact – you guessed it – firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Or make a pledge via our crowdfunding campaign for this spectacular temporary city, set to attract thousands of Cantabrians and visitors alike. There are some sweet rewards up for grabs – from hand crafted jewellery made from repurposed jewellery to VIP toilet access at the event.
What are you throwing out? We need your waste! We are seeking waste materials from local businesses that can be repurposed through design and can be listed on the Harvest Map (a catalogue of reusable materials) for Christchurch. For more information on what waste is needed, and how we can help you divert it from landfill, please contact email@example.com
