Based on the internationally acclaimed book, Auckland Live presents 200 Women, the exhibition, a curated collection of portraits and film of extraordinary women by NZ photographer Kieran E. Scott.
An exhibition that upholds stories of Pacific female resilience. In this way they empower women, bringing stories to the forefront that are often left out of mainstream history.
From the loudest of roars to the gentlest of whispers the exhibition highlights the tools and tactics women have used to fight their causes and support their communities.
In celebration of Suffrage 125, we’ve invited artists to contribute works inspired by this milestone, by people involved in the suffrage movement, or how they see it in a 21st century context.
Join us to hear how this powerful wahine has taken action for social change throughout her colourful career. Our Heritage team will also run Wāhine Take Action exhibition tours from 5.30pm.
Four semi‐permanent public art works are being developed for Tāmaki Makaurau to commemorate Suffrage 125. The works are to be located at Pukekohe, Howick, Onehunga and Takapuna, each with ties to the suffrage movement.
To commemorate Suffrage 125, artist Peata Larkin (Tūhourangi, Ngāti Whakaue and Tūwharetoa) has been commissioned by Auckland Council to create a lighting programme for Te Ara I Whiti - The Lightpath.
We’re celebrating another New Zealand woman of influence in September. This mini-exhibition celebrates Kate Sheppard, pioneer of the suffrage movement in New Zealand, through her own treasured items.
Multi-talented women creatives take the stage to share with us their mana, stories and ideas. Come along and celebrate women artists!
The Suffrage 125 celebration is being led by the Ministry for Women, New Zealand Minitatanga mō ngā Wahine in partnership with Manatū Taonga Ministry for Culture and Heritage.
