"WE BELIEVE THAT EVERY WOMAN IS IMMEASURABLY VALUABLE, AND THAT OUR STORIES HAVE THE ABILITY TO ENCOURAGE, EMPOWER, AND HEAL. WE WORK TO CREATE A SAFE SPACE FOR THESE STORIES TO BE SHARED AND HELD"
GATHER IS AN AUCKLAND BASED SEASONAL EVENT. A CHANCE FOR WOMEN FROM ALL WALKS OF LIFE TO STEP INTO A REFRESHING SPACE AND HEAR OTHER WOMEN SHARE HONESTLY FROM THEIR LIVES AND EXPERIENCES THROUGH NARRATIVE, PANEL DISCUSSION, AND CREATIVE EXPRESSION.
THE HEART OF IT
Gather was born out of the question,
'Where do the women go to receive nurture?'
The journey in exploring this curiosity has lead to taking a vulnerable yet worthwhile risk by working towards creating a beautiful, safe and sacred space, for any women who would like to come together and connect with one another. A space where women can engage in topics that many of us face or are interested in hearing about. Topics that are at times gritty, at times untidy yet held in honesty and carried in hope. It is a time to share and hear stories not solely through testimony but various other creative expressions such as music, film poetry, and dance. All the while having a few treats and no doubt a laugh! It is our hope that those who come along to Gather, wherever they may find themselves placed in this wild and wonderful world, will feel welcome, nourished, and encouraged.
