Abstract: This article uses Ara Toi Ōtepoti – Our Creative Future – Dunedin Arts and Culture Strategy 2015 as a case study of the challenges of participatory governance. As the strategy was co-created by local arts lobby group Transforming Dunedin and the Dunedin City Council, an examination of its development provides an insight into some of the challenges community groups and local councils face when working together in co-design approaches to policy-making. The discussion focuses on key challenges encountered, which centred on differing understandings of what the term “partnership” actually entails. In response, it concludes by suggesting some good practice values and conditions to underpin co-design relationships.
