The Experience

During City of Colour, the heart of the city and Karangahape Road will be bursting with colour from 6th to 22nd May, with over 50 light installations and artworks lighting up streets, trees, laneways, squares, buildings and more. You can expect to see super-sized artworks and illuminated works that glow into the night, and enjoy great deals like over 90 Cheap and Cheerful Eats dining offers available throughout the day and night. City of Colour is a perfect opportunity for Aucklanders to head out, explore and fall back in love with their city centre again while admiring the brilliant works of local artists. “City of Colour marks an important moment in the city centre’s recovery, kick-starting a programme of activities planned over the coming months, to create reasons for people to get back out, return to work and explore the city centre again,” stated Heart of the City. 

The Partnership

As a lifestyle app, OODLZ is dedicated to creating a better connected, more enriched and inclusive Aotearoa. We took this perfect opportunity to assist Heart of the City, encouraging people to re-discover Auckland on a fun day and night out. Heart of the City is impressed with what OODLZ has delivered through this campaign. “OODLZ provided a fun and engaging way of highlighting all the great experiences there are to be had while they are here - whether it be checking out a new opening, discovering a hidden gem, enjoying a delicious Cheap & Cheerful dining offer, and of course exploring all the City of Colour installations.”

OODLZ strives to use digital technology to facilitate a truly immersive walking experience. “We are thrilled to be supporting Heart of the City and helping activate their event, City of Color. The purpose of OODLZ is to add more fun to Kiwis' lives and help communities. So, leveraging OODLZ as a channel for this event is a perfect fit.” said Gina Paladini, Chief of Purpose at OODLZ.
