Help us celebrate the launch of Regenerate Magazine


On 1 December, Regenerate Magazine – which will support people struggling with homelessness and poverty - will launch on the streets of Wellington.

Join us at the official launch on 26 November to buy a magazine and meet some of the vendors. You will also hear from the editorial and production team about how the community can contribute to a quality magazine that will provide poverty affected people with an opportunity to earn a legitimate income.

Regenerate Magazine Director Simon Dodd says it’s an initiative that’s been needed in the capital for some time.

“There seem to be increasing numbers of people sleeping rough around Wellington and we wanted to give them an opportunity to earn a living. It’s a pragmatic response to a very complex issue.”

Vendors will purchase copies of the monthly magazine and on-sell them to the public.

“We’re hoping that locals will show their support by buying an issue each month. It’s a great way to support those less fortunate but it will also be a great read.”

The launch party is a family-friendly event and all are welcome. There will be music from Wellington singer/songwriter St. Bartholomew (who's featured in the first issue) and Harris, who will be showcasing some tracks from his forthcoming LP 'Bed Bugs'.

Date: Sunday 26 November 2017

Location: The Grand, 69 Courtenay Place, Wellington

Time: 3-5pm

Family friendly

Free food

Live entertainment

Sam Uffindell’s defenders keep reminding us that he was only 16 at the time of the King’s College incident, and haven’t we all done things in our teens that, as adults, we look back on with shame and embarrassment? True. Let's be honest. Haven’t we all at one time or another, joined a gang and beaten a smaller, younger kid black and blue with wooden clubs? In that respect, Uffindell’s defenders on the streets of Tauranga risk sounding a bit like the psychiatrist Kargol played by Graham Chapman on Monty Python. Some of the media commentary has also noted how the Uffindell saga has taken the shine off National’s good poll results and distracted us all from the unveiling of an important welfare policy at the recent National Patty conference. OK… So let's put the spotlight back on that welfare policy...
