What our artists are saying

“After my brain injury, Toi Ora helped me change my attitude and my outlook on life. From my first visit, my attitude literally changed overnight because the programmes at Toi Ora have helped me to look at my new life from a whole new perspective!”
– Keith, Grey Lynn

“Through Toi Ora I was able to connect with people who were kind and respectful. I could also reconnect with my creativity and feel the joy and satisfaction this can bring. Gradually, through friends, family and Toi Ora I have been able to feel safer in the world. I have found trust and have been able to enjoy my daily activities again.”
– Juliet, Mt. Roskill
