Diversityworks Trust is entering an art and design project, starting in June, called the 100 Days Project. 100 Days was started by designer Emma Rogan, who spoke at TEDx Auckland last year, as a way to promote creativity.
As recently reported we are stoked to have received such overwhelming support of our PledgeMe campaign to print copies of “My Friend is a Superhero”, our kids' book.
At the beginning of March Diversityworks Trust started a PledgeMe campaign to raise $3500 to print 1000 copies of My Friend Is A Superhero. Duffy Books in Homes agreed to distribute 500 of these to lower-decile schools throughout New Zealand.

Diversityworks Trust's Executive Director, ex-comedian Philip Patston has released his debut music video.
The first book, to be launched in San Fancisco on 14 February, is "Why are Faggots So Afraid of Faggots?" The book "challenges not just the violence of straight homophobia but the hypocrisy of mainstream gay norms that say the only way to stay safe is to act straight: get married, join the military, adopt kids! Compiled by trans-activist Mattilda Bernstein Sycamore, it reinvokes the anger, flamboyance, and subversion once thriving in gay subcultures in order to create something dangerous and lovely: an exploration of the perils of assimilation; a call for accountability; a vision for change."
Over 150 people attended the opening of Artstation’s latest exhibition, How Diversity Works, an innovative art event that sparks a complex and intriguing new conversation about diversity, in Auckland last night.
