About us

We are a creative project and event studio for social change.

Eventer was founded in 2017 by Sarah Colcord. She kicked off her event management journey when she was 17 years old by planning and delivering a 5,000 attendee, one-day festival in South Auckland. She went on to deliver another three young leadership conferences and several other community activations.

At the age of 20, she was elected to Local Government, and ever since then she’s been on a relentless pursuit to solve some of the biggest social challenges within her communities, leveraging her knowledge, skills and relationships she’s gained over the last 8 years in the youth development, event management and Local Government sector. Not to mention, she uses Eventer to give young people as young as the age of 17 paid work experience. We think that’s pretty cool.

We work with our clients to create innovative solutions that meet the needs of the community.
