We had a very busy day today at the Sports Centre, with NZEI hosting their Teachers Union Meeting, and @sportwellington
unveiling 4 new plaques in dedication to sports legends Stuart Davenport, Kevin Herlihy, Melissa Moon, and Suzie Muirhead. Make sure you stop by and check them out! 🏆 #asbsportscentre #kuataetewā #itstime
Unless you think an extra 30seconds a week is enough to plan, prepare for, assess and support your child, please support teachers as we demand better from the government. #kuataetewā #itstime
Y’all gotta wake up the Father is not playing with y’all! Selling your souls for an industry that wants to kill you anyway won’t get you to the #kingdom #wakeup #itstime
True power leans in, listens well, tears down walls, builds bridges, questions injustice, and sits with the broken. .
True power knows we ALL suffer when ANYONE is intentionally traumatized. .
True power rises up, speaks out, marches, and burns unjust policies and practices to the ground. .

We are embarking on what we consider to be the most important chapter of our Birth Time documentary, examining what is currently happening with maternity services for Indigenous Australian women and exploring the Birthing on Country project.
Three months ago we applied for a nation wide grant through a company called Huddle, to help us get to the Northern Territory.
Out of a field of high quality applications from all across Australia, WE WERE CHOSEN as 1 of 3 to be offered a $5,000 grant from Huddle!!! BUT... Only if we raise $10,000, Huddle community will pledge $5,000 to us ($15,000 in total). This will get us to the Northern Territory so we can film and shed some much-needed light on the issues and challenges faced by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women during their pregnancy and birthing time.
This footage will be included in our Birth Time documentary.
AND we are going to produce a FREE 5-minute short film that will share the experience and a ‘behind the scenes - making of’ from this section of the Birth Time production. It will be made available free on our website.
WE NEED YOUR HELP.
Our crowdfunding for Birthing on Country finishes on 30th June 2018.
We have ONE MONTH to raise $15,000.
There are REWARDS for EVERY SINGLE DONATION.
With your help we can raise the money to get us to the Northern Territory to interview and film this vital nation wide initiative to enable Indigenous women to reclaim their birth rites.

If you don't already know about this you mustn't have subscribed to our email updates or maybe you're living under some kind of large rock. Either way, you might want to sit down right about now.
We have dates. We have a location. AND, we have arranged a killer constellation of speakers including,
Kirsten Lewis Bethmann, Ryan Christopher Jones AND Niki Boon. WHAT????!!!!! We all know for sure that the time is way overdue for documentary family photographers of the world to gather for discovery, friendship, education and just plain old celebration of the work we are doing.
We've found the perfect venue right on the Miami beachfront and just cannot wait to meet every one of you poolside for cocktails. You will hear from six highly esteemed speakers with the opportunity for live onstage critique of your work.
Whether you are just starting out or you've been doing this work for a while and are ready to be pushed a little further into the genre of photojournalism, this conference will cater for everybody.
Rest assured we will be building in plenty of time for socialising on the beach and cannot wait to tell you about the poolside taco party + photography exhibition we have planned as well.
So sit tight and get yourselves ready for a limited number of early bird tickets to go on sale very soon!
The buzz around this event so far has been completely thrilling to say the least and since we don’t have a huge number of tickets to sell, we anticipate it will fill up quickly. The first people to find out will be those on our email list so please sign up through the link in bio and tag the friends you want to see in Miami the comments below.
Love your hosts Rowena + Blimie 🍹🌮☀️🌸🕶🍾
Ppl want me to hate you/not support you bc u were a "bad person who wasn't ever gunna change" sorry but I dont belive that. EVERYONE doesnt shit there not proud of. He was like anyone else a bi polar mess. Yes his music was dark but it was also real feelings about how he felt instead of bitches shaking there ass and shit. Do I support what he did to his ex? No. But from what I can tell he didnt have the best upbring and I do believe that plays a fairly big part in how you grown up and shit. BOTTOM LINE....no matter what he did, he didnt deserve that. But he also knew it was going to happen. I just hope he is finally happy. There is too many ppl suffering from pain and shit not knowing what to do so they result to violence, drugs, you name it. It needs to stop. #maketheworldabetterplace #itstime #ripX
