Shift Hui is an annual gathering for young people of minority sexualities, genders, and sex characteristics. Shift Hui is run by InsideOUT Kōaro. InsideOUT works to give rainbow young people in Aotearoa New Zealand a sense of safety and belonging in their schools and communities.
Shift Hui happens every April school holidays at the beautiful Horouta Ki Poneke Marae (Ngati Porou) in Porirua.
Over four days and three nights, young people at the hui will experience a rich variety of workshops and panels, addressing issues of rainbow life in Aotearoa.
Activities such as crafting, writing workshops, movie night, and the final night talent show further enrich the atmosphere and experience of Shift Hui.
Rainbow young people aged 15-20 are encouraged to attend, and we have volunteer programmes especially designed for young people aged 18-24 to provide experience in the coordination of a big event like Shift Hui.
