Art is just such an ambiguous word. Mabe it is the “death of Wellington” and all that implys is what the golden age of art illustrates. Personally, I am enjoying quiet of an economic downturn.
Depends on where the boundary is drawn. There's peace & quiet, and then there's sleepy & boring.
a small typo, but it’s all fixed now…
see: New Zealand’s Tory project,
that’s what they meant, and why it’s funded…
Makes ya wonder what we’ve been telling people up till now…
Or for extra doubleplusgood: Project for a New Aotearoan Century.
More than half of NZ's population has lived in cities for over a century now, despite the rural myth we continue with.
Downshifting to Hamilton, or sprawling to Hamilton? Draw your own conclusion.

The whole thing is part of the wider issue of Auckland being dragged kicking & screaming from overgrown country town to proper globalised city.
It defies logic for a city to be bursting at the seams while the rest of the country seemingly empties out. Unless of course, you're setting up a business that supposedly needs to be on the next flight to LAX/LHR/NRT at a moment's notice.
