Event description

Description

Youth Voice Canterbury (YVC) is excited to announce our first ever ReDefine Hui! ReDefine aims to redefine what it means to be a young person with a disability and empower these young people to take on a positive identity and see their value not despite disability but with disability.

Day #1 ReDefine Hui: Breaking Barriers | Saturday 31st August

Day 1 is exclusively for young people (aged 12-24) with disabilities to come and share the challenges YOU face to participating in youth-led groups, and workshop ideas on how to mitigate these barriers while connecting with other like-minded youth. The discussions had will be used to create a resource for youth-led groups in our network and beyond to use for the future, and the initial findings will be shared on the second day of the hui!

Come and join us for good discussions, kai and lasting connections from 11.30am-3.30pm 31st August 2019 at Tūranga in Auaha Hīhī/Spark Place. Lunch and afternoon tea provided!

Day #2 ReDefine Hui: Take Notice | Sunday 1st September

Day 2 of the hui is open to all young people (aged 12-24) and organisations who are interested in becoming more accessible and welcoming to youth with disabilities. You will hear from an inspiring speakers panel (keep an eye on our event when we start announcing speakers!). We will also be sharing some of the tips and suggestions young people with disabilities who attended day 1 of the hui have on how youth-led groups can better include and support them.

If you are up for an afternoon of fun and thought-provoking discussions join us from 11.30am-3pm 1st September 2019 at Tūranga in Auaha Hīhī/Spark Place. Lunch and afternoon tea provided!

This is a free event.
