Te Aroha Tua and Aaron Smith unveil the Take a moment with us exhibition at The New Zealand Steel Gallery in Pukekohe.

Franklin: The Centre in Pukekohe is currently home to a unique art exhibition called Take A Moment With Us.

This free multimedia exhibition introduces viewers to the lives of people with intellectual disabilities.

Using photographs and video, the exhibition showcases the reality of life for people with intellectual disability - the dreams, the loneliness, the talents and the sadness.

Take a Moment With Us was launched at Canterbury Museum in November 2010 and was due to run until March 2011; however, the February 2011 earthquake brought the exhibition to an early end.

The people who feature in the exhibition are from all over New Zealand, with different ages, backgrounds, cultures, interests and abilities.

All have stories to tell about community, inclusion and disability that have been captured in photographs and on video footage.

The exhibition will run till June 20 at the New Zealand Steel Gallery, 12 Massey Ave, Pukekohe.
