Rekindle at Social Enterprise World Forum

From 27-29th September 2017 the Social Enterprise World Forum (SEWF) is coming to Ōtautahi Christchurch. This will be a wonderful few days.

Rekindle is involved in the Forum in the following ways:

  1. Pecha Kucha: Juliet Arnott, Founder & Director of Rekindle is speaking about resourcefulness and her 'why' at Purpose - Pecha Kucha on Tuesday 26th September 2017 
  2. Kahikatea Taonga: We have been commissioned to carve a taonga from local Kahikatea (we saved this precious wood from becoming wood-chip when it was being cut down in the Canterbury University grounds). This taonga will be gifted to SEWF at the closing ceremony and will travel with the forum to each host country from now on.
  3. Visit Rekindle Resourceful Skills Pop-up Workshop: We are running open sessions from 11.30 to 1.30pm each day from Monday 25th to Friday 29th September 2017 at our Resourceful Skills Pop-up Workshop in the central city at 100 Peterborough Street. This is your chance to drop in and see resourceful crafts being practiced e.g. Hazel being made into clothes pegs, string & rope being made from Tī Kōuka leaves, and greenwood-working. We'll also have some of our wares for sale. 
  4. At the Forum: Juliet Arnott speaking in the Enterprise of Waste Minimisation session at SEWF on Friday 29th September 2017 from 10.30am to 12.00pm 
  5. Open Evening: Visit our workshop at Ferrymead Heritage Park on Saturday 30th September from 4 to 6pm and at 4.30pm hear about our work and see resourceful skills being practiced. Please book your place by sending an email to
