Project Pūtoetoe: Survivor of an Older Generation Exhibition

Stacks Image 21796
The stories and histories of long-term HIV survivors and those living with or affected by HIV are being forgotten. Especially in the age where HIV agencies are focusing on the eradication of HIV and getting to zero transmissions.

Project Pūtoetoe is an Aotearoa, New Zealand based, PLHIV led project which aims to record, present and preserve these stories because they matter. Recording these stories is an important part of our social history and we hope to empower PLHIV while decreasing shame and stigma.
Please come along and help keep these histories alive.

Wellington Museum’s Flux space
1-9 Dec, Daily 10am - 4.30pm
Public Preview: Friday 30 Nov, 5.30pm

Further details are available via the Facebook event link HERE

True Colours Cabaret Gala

8pm, Auckland Town Hall
For World AIDS Day and in association with NZAF, Body Positive and Positive Women the Puāwai Festival launches its fresh new True Colours Cabaret Gala!!!!!!!!

This year we invite you to immerse yourself in an evening of stellar entertainment by incredible local talent, raising awareness for a community that has a whakapapa and stories that are uniquely their own!

An evening of dance, aerial performance, spoken word and music featuring performances from The Dust Palace's Jackson Cordery, and dancers Phoebe Heyhoe and Ardon England. Our Puāwai vocalists Amanda Grace Leo, Emma Kahu Walter, Zaverr Doctor, Alexandra McKellar and Paul Fagamalo. And, not forgetting our headline act, NZ icons The Lady Killers!

“…The Lady Killers' sound defies pigeonholing, wilfully crossing genres from pop, R&B, jazz, gospel, country to a whole lot of rock and gleefully name-checking artists such as Queen, The Beatles, Neil Young, Neil Finn and Dolly Parton. These gals sing anything that takes their fancy....” -NZ Herald

This is a night not to be missed!

True Colours Cabaret Gala is the crescendo to a full week of awareness events celebrating our authentic selves, the 30th anniversary of the NZ Aids Memorial Quilts.

Co-presented by Auckland Live and Taurima Vibes.
