Are We There Yet?

Media Release:
Auckland Museum continues the Are We There Yet? conversation with a symposium and upcoming 2018 LATE series of talks.

For immediate release
Monday 23 July 2018

Auckland War Memorial Museum continues to explore the ideas and themes sparked by the Are We There Yet?exhibition with a full day symposium on intersectional feminism and LATE 2018 smart talks around #MeToo and a conversation with Helen Clark.

Dina Jezdic, Audience Development and Engagement Specialist at Auckland Museum says “The acknowledgement of the suffrage 125 anniversary gives us a great opportunity to look back and examine the past struggles of gender equality in order to reframe our present. Our world has become globalised and we must acknowledge and celebrate the emergence of complex subjectivities that no longer reside in binary constructs of male and female. We have an opportunity to address larger inequities and reimagine a future that is just as complex, intersectional, and inclusive of all.”

Shi(f)t Happens: Intersectionality in Feminism Symposium, Sunday 12th August, addresses the social impact of intersectional feminism through lectures, panels, workshops, artistic interventions and performances. This symposium will feature academics, activists, creative individuals and collectives whose work amplifies underrepresented voices, engages cross-disciplinary thinking and catalyses its potential within the feminist community of Aotearoa. These individuals and collectives include keynote speaker Ngahuia Te Awekotuku, Saraid Cameron, Jackie Clark, Damaris Jeanne Coulter, Emma Espiner, FAFSWAG Collective, Rosanne Liang, Nisha Madhan, Lexie Matheson, Laura O'Connell, Rosanna Raymond and Amelia Rose Reynolds.

The LATE 2018 #MeToo, Wednesday 15th August, moderated by Noelle McCarthy, continues the conversations around the Are We There Yet? exhibition. This LATE looks at a movement that has inspired countless women, to share their experiences with sexual assault or harassment through the internet. Panellists Donna Awatere, Zoë Lawtonand Kirsty Johnston assess the repercussions and reactions that are redefining the sexual landscape and explain how society might change in the process. Following this discussion is an artist activation by Rosanna Raymond and SaVAge K’lub, and theatre vignettes from Cult Show: The Revitalisation of the New Zealand Women's Archives.

An Evening with Helen Clark, Monday 3rd September, is a conversation with Noelle McCarthy where Helen discusses her life, career and her new book. She continues to be a strong voice for sustainable development, climate action, gender equality and women's leadership, peace and justice, and action on non-communicable diseases and on HIV. A book signing will follow this LATE event.

Noelle McCarthy says “I'm excited to be coming back to LATE for a debate as urgent as the one around #MeToo and I look forward to leading the panel through a conversation that, for all its difficulty, is too important not to be having right now here in New Zealand.

In the midst of celebrating the historic anniversary of women’s suffrage, it's a privilege to spend an evening in conversation with a woman who has done so much to show this generation what leadership looks like, not only at home in Aotearoa, but also on the world stage.”

Join us for contemplation and exchange that brings ideas and people together. Last year’s season of LATE events was a sell-out, with the combination of lively debate, entertainment and food and drinks, attracting large audiences.

Gordon Campbell: On Compensating Afghan Civilian Casualties

Reportedly, there have been nine incidents resulting in 17 civilian deaths and injuries (seven of the dead were children) caused by ordnance left behind on what used to be the firing range of our Provincial Reconstruction Team (PRT) in Bamiyan province.

Given that the NZ Defence Force has needed to be hauled kicking and screaming into belatedly arranging an adequate clean-up of its old firing range… what would it take before New Zealand offers to pay compensation to the families of those who suffered death and injury from what was left behind on our watch?
