The Collectives

We are a group of people living on the shores of Te Whanganui-a-Tara wanting to provide sustainable and welcoming spaces for creative and activist people, groups and projects.

We support the ideal of wanting a society free of coercion and oppression and reject systems of domination and discrimination. We embrace the full dignity of all human beings.

We welcome any write ups of your event to be added to our blog. They can be sent to thecollectivesaotearoa@gmail.com

Kaupapa

19 Tory Street, Level 1 is an open community space The space is run collectively on donations, koha and volunteer effort. The space is free to use and people are asked to nurture the space through exchange.

Honouring Te Tiriti o Waitangi is important to the kaupapa of the space and we do this by acknowledging that we stand on the shores of Te Whanganui-a-Tara land that has been stolen by pākehā, where reparations are ongoing today and injustices in power imbalances occur daily. Relationships are created by listening and reciprocity, we encourage hosts to make manaakitanga central their hosting responsibilities.
