HIV And Stigma Art Exhibition Opening

HIV And Stigma Art Exhibition Opening

Positive Women Inc. presents “POSITIVE. Storied Lives: Meaning Making through Narrative and Art Processes”.

“POSITIVE” is a Masters project by Helen Robertson in collaboration with Positive Women Inc. This installation digitally documents the stories of seven participants that are affected by or living with HIV/AIDS in New Zealand. Each story has been captured in a ten minute clip, each of which will play at the same time. The viewer is invited to go around and take in the clips one by one.

Helen Robertson says of her project, “The idea for the exhibition was driven by a desire to create meaning through narrative and art processes and how this can contribute to a process of empowerment for the participant and simultaneously create an enhanced understanding for the viewer”.

Jane Bruning, National Coordinator of Positive Women Inc. says “We are proud to be supporting this exhibition because we want to raise the voice of HIV related stigma and discrimination through the voices of people affected by HIV”.

The participants are from diverse multicultural backgrounds, all of whom have unique perspectives on how living with HIV affects their lives.

The opening of the exhibition is from 5 pm on Tuesday 13th of August at the No. 4 Gallery off Karangahape Rd in Newton and will be open until Friday 16th of August
