Next date: Sunday, 23 June 2024 | 09:00 PM to Monday, 12 May 2025 | 04:00 PM

Magaret-John- a local Sudanese immigrant to Upper Hutt.

Home tells the stories of ten families who have travelled from other countries to make Upper Hutt their home. Here they share their personal journeys, their challenges, and their triumphs, and what it is like to leave one home behind, to create a new one.

Through their stories, hear insights into why they left, how they got here, and what brought them to Upper Hutt, New Zealand. Experience their fear, their joy, their sadness. Share in their struggles and rejoice with them in their successes. Most of all, celebrate the families and cultures that make Upper Hutt the multicultural community it is today.
