Feedback from previous forums:

“The forum was loving, challenging, honest, heartfelt and relational. Perfect and left me feeling positive about change and possibilities and hope in lessening the harm that happens for wahine Māori”

“Excellent session in every way. The kōrero was smart, powerful and totally accessible; it was filled with wisdom and warmth in equal measure. Ka pai and ngā mihi nui”

“This really was a wonderful event, with inspirational wāhine toa and packed full of real life experience insights and wisdom. Ka mau te wehi! Many thanks to all involved”


Which ticket price should I select?

We try to keep our events affordable for all. We use a sliding scale to take into account different levels of financial well-being, so that people on a low income can still afford to attend. As a gauge, we expect that people in full time employment would pay the full amount and people in part-time employment pay somewhere closer to the mid-range. It would be appropriate for students and beneficiaries to pay closer to the base end of the scale.
