Trustees of Diversityworks Trust celebrated eight years of promoting diversity, creativity and social change at its Annual General Meeting last night. The Trust, founded in 2005 by Philip Patston, aims to advance social and community welfare, culture and heritage through the establishment of community based projects promoting community development to enhance social and economic participation, with an emphasis on artistic and creative processes.
Radio NZ National recently profiled “My Friend is a Superhero” on One In Five.
This morning Diversityworks Trust's Executive Director Philip Patston saw the visual representation of DPSN's "100 Days of Diversity" project safely installed in the Nathan Room in Britomart Auckland. Part of Emma Rogan's "100 Day's Project", 100 Days of Diversity asked 100 people for a photo and a statement about what makes them unique.
When we raised enough money to print 1500 copies of “My Friend is a Superhero” through our PledgeMe campaign, we received an incredible amount of generous feedback.
The More Diversity on Screen campaign set out to begin a new conversation with the public and media industry in New Zealand about disability and diversity on screen.
A project to preserve historic film footage of the early use and development of New Zealand Sign Language (NZSL) and NZ Deaf culture has been supported by a grant of $16,000 from InternetNZ.
As recently reported we are stoked to have received such overwhelming support of our PledgeMe campaign to print copies of “My Friend is a Superhero”, our kids' book.
