We all have our dynamic relationships with the city we live in. An unplanned encounter with a friend, or a stranger smiling at you can easily make your day. At the same time the hustle and bustle of the big city life at times can really bring you down. With a population over 1.5million people, Tamaki Makarau has a lot of things to offer and every day we experience all highs and lows in instant.
On 8th March, International Women’s Day, “Women in the City” is a story that we invite you to be a part of.
If you are a woman / non-binary who lives and breathes the air of Tamaki Makarau and is keen to share your story, your favourite places in the city or a simple anecdote, please click the link below to fill in the form.
Anyone can share their story, insights and thoughts. You don’t need to hold a certain job title or achieve anything in life to be a part of the project. All you need to do is to be honest and share your real-life stories about your life in the city. The story can be fun inspiring, thought-provoking and meaningful.
Your story is as short as possible, the size doesn’t matter. What matters is that you open your heart and share what is real for you. Every person who is taking part in the project has the right to remain anonymous.
The narrative of your story can be related but not limited to one of the themes below:
- Finding your path
Your ambitions & the Big City Life. Talk about work-life balance
- Sex and The City
Fashion, shopping, love, dating and having a family in the city of sails

Favourite places, local business or female stories that inspire you

“Women in the City” is a fictional tale told on behalf of women whose legacy is present to this day and everyday women who live, work, love, lose, forgive and find their own path to feel alive in the city. A kaleidoscope of real-life stories, biographies of iconic wahine, everyday anecdotes and uncommon female voices come together in a beautifully curated audio story; so together we can draw a portrait of a modern woman of Tamaki Makarau.
