Rare Disorders NZ and Paintvine are joining forces at Harbourside in Wellington on August 15 to make impactful change, one paint stroke at a time. Join us in creating your own bespoke piece of art representing the call for Aotearoa to #GlowUpShowUp for rare.

Bring your friends, whānau, team, and partner along for a night of collaboration and conversation to raise money and awareness for the rare disorder community. Unleash your inner creative for a fun, social night out - all while making a difference for the 300,000 New Zealanders living with a rare disorder.

Art supplies and refreshments will be provided as a Paintvine artist takes you through the steps to create your own piece of art to take home. Come as you are - no artistic skill required. 

Be there or be square. #GlowUpShowUp for Rare.  


  • 6:30-9pm, Tuesday, 15 August
  • $65 per ticket
  • Cableroom Harbourside Function Centre - 4 Taranaki Street, Te Aro, Wellington 6011 (Behind Mac’s Brew Bar)
  • R18
  • Dress code: Wear something bright and colourful to #GlowUpShowUp for rare.


Unlike most OECD countries, New Zealand doesn’t have a national strategy for rare disorders.

Living with a rare disorder isn’t rare – the size of the community is similar to that of a big city like Wellington. If you don’t have a rare disorder, then you likely know someone who does. And they need you to Glow Up And Show Up for rare.

It’s time to glow up and show up for the hundreds of thousands of New Zealanders who are being left in the dark.

It’s time to #DoRightByRare.

Registration details available soon.
