We Are Beneficiaries

Illustration, type

The #wearebeneficiaries project was begun during the 2017 election campaign, continuing the conversation that Metiria Turei started – demanding a more compassionate social welfare system in NZ.

People who had been on a benefit in NZ were asked to write some sentences about their experience and to draw a picture to go with their words. In some cases, other artists drew pictures to go with someone else’s words. This is what I did.
