Auckland is Awesome newsletter highlights awesome Auckland

From First Up, 5:37 am on 7 December 2023

A proud Aucklander who was sick of hearing people complain about the lack of things to do in the City has put his ideas where his mouth is. Kiran Patel has been publishing the weekly e-Newsletter "Auckland is Awesome" for the past year. It contains a list of things you can go to see that week in Auckland, ranging from Poetry Readings to Vintage Markets, underground gigs to international theatre. Kiran founded Move Space on Dominion Road five years ago, which is a creative hub that acts as a venue, has music, photography and podcasting studios as well as being a shared working space. Leonard Powell went to Move Space to meet Kiran, and find out why he decided to start up the Newsletter.
