Community Kōrero


Te Wāhi Wāhine o Tāmaki Makaurau is proud to present regular insightful and energising public forums – kōrero and conversations that bring people together. We highlight incredible thought leadership from wāhine and women throughout Tāmaki Makaurau and our expert speakers explore issues important to women’s lives..

We focus on shining a torch on topics that don’t receive much attention.

Our usual practice for forums is to make them as accessible as possible, by providing NZSL interpreters, welcoming all genders and live-streaming the kōrero for those who can’t enjoy the time with us in person.



We are excited to be organising regular fundraising film screenings and events. Bringing you films by emerging women directors and some classics of feminist and lesbian cinema, international feminists, artists and local music. It’s a great night out and a great way to support your Women’s Centre.

Upcoming forum:

Dr Emma Espiner 24 November – Award-winning columnistpodcast presenter, reviewer, twitter star, junior doctor and māmā – we’re excited and delighted that the remarkable Dr Emma Espiner, wearing all her different pōtae, will be sharing her wit and warmth with us, in kōrero with Stacey Morrison.
