Being Human is a sculpture to challenge notions of beauty, while honouring diversity and inclusion. This free and fully accessible event celebrates the diversity of humanity in society today. Through show-stopping installation, the hope is to challenge the viewer and start conversations.
Viewers are encouraged to walk or travel through this human exhibit, and to immerse themselves in this art installation, appreciate diversity and consider how we can all be more inclusive.
A collaborative human artwork, On Display was originally created by Heidi Latsky Dance NY, and is presented by Touch Compass in collaboration with AUT Event Production.
2pm - 4pm
Auckland Art Gallery
We Speak as One is produced by AUT event management students in collaboration with Auckland Art Gallery and Touch Compass. This exciting debate features speakers who will explore culture, religion and disability to gain a broader understanding of how events can be created to be more accessible and inclusive throughout Aotearoa.
Join us as we seek ways to better support accessibility across the vibrant and growing events industry. The We Speak as One programme consists of a variety of speakers who will address current issues and invite participants to incorporate accessibility considerations into the planning of future events – ultimately creating new industry standards.
4pm - 6pm
