Watch or listen to Viv Beck, CEO of Heart of the City, Tāmaki Makaurau Auckland’s city centre business association in conversation with ‘Cultured Conversations’ host Auckland Art Gallery Director, Kirsten Paisley, in the latest of this twelve-part digital series.

At the helm of Heart of the City, Viv champions a city centre economy with a vibrant and thriving heart. Viv discusses the impacts of COVID-19 on the CBD, describing the “perfect storm” of a loss of international tourism, the movement to working from home and business closures. She proposes a dynamic arts and culture offering, however, could be the key to recovery for the economic and civic life of the central city.
