Nau mai ~ Welcome to the 2019 Weaving House Public Lecture SeriesScreen Shot 2019-03-09 at 5.11.50 pm

~  Her Voice is being held in Wānaka on the 12-13th April 2019 ~

A series of public lectures with New Zealand Women leaders and thinkers discussing the varied issues we have at major crossroads.

The focus is on Gender Equality and Human Rights issues, interwoven with topics and areas of life these women specialise.

The speakers come from a range of expertise with backgrounds and knowledge in politics, our environment, law, science, urban design, human rights, reproductive rights and health, economics, media, sporting, family and sexual violence, business and social development.

Each of our Weaving House 2019 speakers encompass women who nurture, hold and fortify more than one role in our communities. They are brave ~ they are a learned force.

Speakers are bringing their experiences, knowledge and critical thinking for todays challenges to help move us forward with haste ~ They will be describing essential ideas to outline where we need to be and how to get there ~ why we need to rapidly transform our way of viewing the world and how to support those efforts.

Speakers will be presenting those ‘dangerous ideas’ to provide simple and clear steps towards a collective future as a peaceful, equitable, sustainable nation and global community.

Words from the Mayor;

‘ Tēnā koutou and welcome to beautiful Wanaka. You have certainly chosen an inspirational setting for this marvellous meeting of minds. I congratulate the organisers for their offering of a such diverse range of speakers, I am sure everyone will find something to challenge their conceptions of the contemporary New Zealand woman. While you are here, be sure to step outside, take in our breathtaking views and meet some of our fabulous locals. Wanaka embraces guardianship and  collaboration like few other small communities I’ve come across. We take pride in the sharing our paradise and hope that your conference can contribute to our goal of soaring creativity here in the Upper Clutha.

Nga mihi,

Jim Boult ONZM

Mayor of Queenstown Lakes District’
