To unite in the fight against HIV, to show support for people living with HIV, and to commemorate those who have died from an AIDS-related illness we present SING! Is an inclusive community event where friends and strangers come together to learn a song and SING! You don’t need to be an accomplished singer to participate – you just need to have some fun and participate.

Talented NZ singer, Tina Cross and our fabulous conductor, Jo Kelsey will teach everyone a song and when we have it perfect we do a final performance which is filmed to capture our awesomeness. We are accompanied by the phenomenally talented Linn Lorkin who has performed all over the world and will be sharing her piano and vocal talents.

Project Pūtoetoe
Survivor of an Older Generation Exhibition

Free event

The stories and histories of long-term HIV survivors and those living with or affected by HIV are being forgotten. Especially in the age where HIV agencies are focusing on the eradication of HIV and getting to zero transmissions.

Project Pūtoetoe is an Aotearoa, New Zealand based, PLHIV led project which aims to record, present and preserve these stories because they matter. Recording these stories is an important part of our social history and we hope to empower PLHIV while decreasing shame and stigma.
