The Gender Centre @128

The Gender Centre is in the old Revolting Books Library room at 128, and is now open 10am – 3pm weekdays. They have a lot of different information and services for transgender and intersex people, as well as free IPL facial hair removal club, a free lawyer, and other things (on different days and times). Raw Sugar queer and rainbow social is also held monthly. Check for current times on their website here.

New Op Shop at 128

Aunty Dana’s Op Shop has opened at 128!

There are lots of lovely volunteers as well as heaps of customers and curious community members, it’s really nice to have such a buzz at the moment.

The 128 Collective has some summer plans to clear out old clutter and make 128 super functional – send us in your ideas!

We hope to run some community workshops soon too, so keep an eye on our front windows and chalk board for updates, or pop in and check out the community notce board.

Feburary Working Bee

Come to 128 for a working bee this month – Saturday the 21st from 11am

We’re gonna be getting rid of yard junk, chucking out some pretty cool stuff that people could take home, and getting it all ready for the downstairs switch around and becoming totally kid safe and inclusive to whanau.
Exciting stuff!!!

You are welcome to bring food to share – the kitchen is vegetarian but you can bring pre-prepared non-veg food for eating elsewhere in the house.

Come and meet the 128 Collective members, members of groups who use 128, and other lovely people from associated communities 🙂

See you there!


Sunday May 5th Working Bee

Sunday May 5th at 11.30am come to 128 for a working bee! Theres lots to be done, including sanding, priming and painting the windows out the front on the ground floor, fixing the planter boxes and planting flowers, and building a table and bench seats in the back yard to seat 20 people! Its gonna be heaps fun!! Theres also lots of paints and art supplies to sort through, shelving needs moving around, dress ups need to go downstairs to the free box, and the pantry needs an autumn clear out. There are also heaps of board games with mixed up pieces to sort through, the new wheelchair ramp needs finishing, and someone needs to take the worm farm home, because the worms could do with some love (and a steady stream of food scraps).

We’re expecting a really good turn out, most of the groups who are based at 128 and many of the groups who regularly book 128 are keen to help out, so if you feel like doing some cool stuff at 128 or getting to know people a bit better come along!
There will be a big list of jobs and all the gear needed to get them done!
We really look forward to seeing you there, and hope you’ll stick around after for a big feed around the freshly built outdoor community dinner table.

Love and Solidarity
– The 128 Collective
