Celebrating the way women change the world
Women 20-18 - Bright Star

There are no ordinary women. Young and old, rich and poor, famous and unknown, each of us has unique challenges, motivations and dreams.

Auckland Live presents a season of visual art, music, theatre and talks that shines a spotlight on the un-ordinary women of New Zealand’s arts industries, and celebrates the voices of all women here and around the world.

Here are the incredible events that you can enjoy as part of inspiring and educational season.

200 Women
15 August - 23 September, Aotea Centre

Based on the internationally acclaimed book 200 Women: who will change the way you see the world, this curated exhibition weaves together 15 stunning photographic portraits by Kieran E. Scott of women from New Zealand and around the world, with exclusive video interviews exploring themes of diversity, equality and authenticity.  

Bright Star
4 - 16 September, Herald Theatre

Inspired by the life of trail-blazing New Zealand astronomer Beatrice Hill Tinsley, Bright Star is the story of an extraordinary woman fighting for recognition in an era where the fairer sex were best kept at home, looking after the kids and getting dinner ready.

Speak Up!
8 September, Aotea Centre

Wāhine in the arts gather to talk, debate and dig deep into some of the issues facing us in contemporary Aotearoa. Be inspired and stimulated by panels made up of fearless, feisty and opinionated voices discussing diverse and sometimes difficult subjects with humour, humility and aroha for all.

Sunrise Celebration
19 September, 7am

Join female politicians, the next generation of women leaders, and musical guests as they honour the fight for gender equality in Aotearoa.  

$2 per hour to a max of $12 on weekends and a $12 flat rate for weekday evenings at The Civic car park. Find out more
