We Speak as One


event Details

We Speak as One is produced by AUT event management students in collaboration with Auckland Art Gallery and Touch Compass.

This exciting debate features speakers who will explore culture, religion and disability to gain a broader understanding of how events can be created to be more accessible and inclusive throughout Aotearoa. Join us as we seek ways to better support accessibility across the vibrant and growing events industry.

The We Speak as One programme consists of a variety of speakers who will address current critical issues and invite participants to incorporate accessibility considerations into the planning of future events – ulimately creating new industry standards.

Speakers include:

  • Mike Moka, Indigenous Growth Ltd
  • Nicola Owen, Audio Described Aotearoa
  • Charlotte Nightingale, Touch Compass.

Following the debate, join AUT Event Production students from 4–6pm at AUT's Vesbar for a carousing pub quiz to challenge the boundaries of accessibility and inclusivity. Enjoy happy hour prices and compete in a challenge featuring eight rounds of compelling questions on topical issues from the visual to the physical, invisible and auditory.

Everybody: Let’s Get Quizzical aims to engage students and the wider community by joining together, having a laugh and considering how our world can be a bit more inclusive. Support AUT's students, explore the edges of diversity and contribute to the vibrant Auckland event community.

All proceeds will go to Touch Compass.
