Tell the world about it! Opal Success Stories

All around Aotearoa, New Zealand and the world, Opal people & their children are busy learning new skills and finding success.  

Many Opal people have lived a life well beyond the looking glass. For any person who’s passionate about making a difference in the areas of Corrections, Justice, Policing, Mental Health  and Social Welfare I hope that you’ll enjoy listening to the voices of our Opal people, for this reason;

To have an honest desire to help a person – you need to understand to the very cellular make-up of yourself that we are all one & there is no such thing as ‘them & us.’

In New Zealand a well used Maori proverb is:

He aha te mea nui o te ao
What is the most important thing in the world?
He tangata, he tangata, he tangata
It is the people, it is the people, it is the people

Below are eight videos of Opal artists. These people are all performing work that they had written as part of the series that aired on the New Zealand television program series called Songs from the Inside. I’ve also added in a video link to an interview with the author Anne Perry.
