The NZ Tiny House & Alternative Living Conference is a unique full-day immersion experience to discover, learn, celebrate and shape the growing tiny house and alternative living movement in New Zealand.
The one-day event on October 17th helps people discover, learn about and celebrate NZ’s tiny house and alternative living movement.
Standard housing is increasingly unaffordable in NZ. The tiny house scene is growing as a consequence of this; tiny living appeals to a wide audience. It’s popular with young people trying to start out in their first home, older people who want to escape the rat race or anyone who simply wants to be kinder to the planet.
The national conference is the only event of its kind in NZ and is being held in Auckland for the second time. Previous events have also been held in Christchurch and the Wairarapa, with the latter selling out.
More than 300 people attended the 2019 Auckland conference. We have some interesting speakers, including Lucy Aitken-Read, who lives off-grid in a yurt in a Coromandel forest, tiny house builder Chris Morrison and LandShare founder and NZTHA spokesperson Nathan Orr.
Our conference covers everything from managing a tiny house build to furnishing, design and decor. I want people to come away with ideas and inspiration, and the knowledge that tiny living is a viable, affordable alternative to standard housing.”
