First ever Graffiti Free Week

30 Oct 2013

Did you know that beautiful murals such as this are a good way to deter graffiti? Keep New Zealand Beautiful, Rotary, Resene and Conservation Volunteers NZ are collaborating in the first nation-wide Keep New Zealand Beautiful Graffiti Free Week, which runs from November 4-11.

Many Kiwis will get involved with the inaugural Graffiti Free Week – when individuals, businesses, schools and groups get out into their communities and help to remove graffiti from their patch. Groups and individuals can join an organised event in their area, or they can set up their own event and publicise it on the Keep New Zealand Beautiful website.
