With COVID-19 classified as a pandemic, there has never been a more important time to be Neighbourly. To ensure everyone in our communities feels safe and supported, spread facts not fear. Regularly consult government sources and encourage others to do the same.
During this uncertain time, it’s fine to feel a little overwhelmed. To keep up to date with the latest developments and how you can do your bit, visit https://covid19.govt.nz/.
Michelle of Colour Our Story and Brian of Conscious Action are coming together for a Purposeful and Joyful Sunday afternoon filled with global connection, mindfulness and creativity.
Colour Our Story facilitates the creation of colouring-in books by children for children across the World. These books are designed to empower, inspire and create a real sense of connection and global citizenship through the magical and therapeutic powers of storytelling and creativity.
Conscious Action facilitates spaces to raise awareness and inspire meaningful action on topics that range from sustainability to wellbeing and everything related to conscious living.
Once again Colour Our Story has a beautiful collection of drawings and stories, this time collected from children in Bali and Aotearoa. And you will get to view them first before they go into our special colouring in books with stories.
In addition you will get to enjoy the creative therapy of tracing the children's drawings, which is part of our creative bookmaking process, while soaking in some mindfulness moments with Brian as well as some delicious nibbles, mulled wine, non alcoholic drinks, relaxing music and of course the beautiful company of each other as you get to know the children through their artworks.
In response to the severe water shortages, we are encouraging Aucklanders to install rainwater tanks at home by scrapping resource consent fees.
