The Innovating Streets for People projects are community-led. Local design agency ĀKAU has led the projects in both Kaikohe and Moerewa. ĀKAU has engaged tamariki in Moerewa and Kaikohe to help with the design process.
Students from Moerewa School have painted planter boxes that sit outside Moerewa School and Otiria Marae. Local artist, Lorraine King, has developed tamariki ideas into graphics featured in Moerewa.
In Kawakawa, the project has been led by Lau'rell Pratt and Rachel Henare from Kings Theatre Creative and Trish Little from the Kawakawa Business Association. Several local artists have been involved including Lorraine King, Hoana Paul and Tash Nicholas.
