Seeking Community

He Ngakau Aatea Kitea

Living with a learning disability

This is a collection of life stories by people with a learning disability in Aotearoa/New Zealand.  Eleven people people with a disability and their families took photos of their lives and wrote their stories in 2003.
These were displayed at the launch of the NZ government report
To Have an ‘Ordinary’ Life, and later exhibited at many conferences over the next two years. 
The stories were then published in a book: Seeking Community: He Ngakau Aatea Kitea and made into a DVD where people read their stories. 
The video clips from the DVD are available here.
To order the book and/or DVD contact People First NZ.
