Take a moment with us is an inspirational exhibition that showcases the everyday lives of people from all over New Zealand. It might make you think what people’s lives could be like if we focused more on their abilities, rather than their disabilities.

Review from New York 2012 Sprout Film Festival
“The film clearly demonstrated the international scope of the challenge of accepting people with disabilities. It not only enhanced the discussions following the screenings but also raised the enjoyment level of the festival. We were honored to present the film and realised how it clearly succeeded in accomplishing the festival’s motto – making the invisible visible.”
“It was a wonderful addition to the programme and to the festival.” Sprout Film Festival executive director Anthony Di Salvo, Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York where a short film from Take a moment with us featured in April.
Sprout is a New-York based organisation offering programmes for people in the United States with intellectual and developmental disabilities. It presents annual international film festivals featuring people with disabilities as subjects and performers.
