Join Our Community

Community events are a beautiful way to bring us together. These gatherings provide a safe space for people to connect, learn and share how different worldviews and ways of knowing can create compassionate communities in Aotearoa.

Whether it's a neighbourhood block party, a cultural festival, or a charity fundraiser, these events create opportunities for meaningful interactions, fostering a stronger sense of belonging and solidarity within the community. Through shared activities and shared spaces, community events play a vital role in building social cohesion, promoting understanding, and strengthening the bonds that tie us together as a community.
