We need your help to cover the costs of printing the report, and travel to Wellington (from Auckland).

We are a group of artists continuing the conversation Metiria Turei started when she was an MP about the social welfare system in Aotearoa.

We asked people who have been on a benefit in Aotearoa/New Zealand to send us 3-5 sentences about:

• Their time on the welfare system, or

• What they wish the welfare system was like, or

• How they’ve been treated as a beneficiary

We've used their stories to create art.

The project has amassed over 5,000 likes on our facebook page, and 1800 followers on twitter.

Now that the new government has formed - with new ministers of Social Development, Housing and Disability - we want to take this opportunity to share our stories with them, to help give them a clear picture of what life is like for beneficiaries, and to offer them key recommendations of how to improve.

For our stories head over to:
