Te Takeretanga o Kura-hau-pō is proud to present Our Voices Horowhenua – Twenty Women’s Stories, by Shepherdess Magazine.

Our Voices set out to uncover the personal voice of women living in the Horowhenua. In these stories, women share what is important to them, the trials they have been through, and where they have found hope and fulfilment. Each story is unique, but they are all connected by a common thread – finding a sense of belonging in the Horowhenua.

Shepherdess held several writing workshops in 2020, bringing women from across the district together for an evening of camaraderie and exploration of the written word.

Shepherdess writer, Carly Thomas, worked with each of the women over a few months to put their experiences on paper and give some insight into what has led them to where they are today. Photographer, Helen Lea Wall, then captured each woman in a place that was meaningful to them and their story.

The result is an exhibition full of power and narrative, sharing the voices of Horowhenua women.
