Youth Mosaic Adds Colour To Glenn Innes

19 January 2001

Glen Innes’s Mana Youth Group will transform the look of Mayfair Place next week, when they begin setting out 100 square metres of mosaic tiles - and they need your help!

Everyone is welcome to come along from Monday 22 January, and help set out the mosaic, which will be opened with a formal blessing on Tuesday 30 January.

Mana Youth were formed in June 2000, following the Glenn Innes Youth Forum held earlier in the year, and the aims of its 12 members focus on ‘how we can make things better for the youth of Glenn Innes’.

The mosaic design celebrates the cultural diversity of the Glenn Innes community, covering the ground and walls of the concrete seated area in the middle of Mayfair Place.

Support for the project has come from the Tamaki Community Board who have pledged $5,000 toward the project, and from the Glenn Innes Business Association who have donated a further $2,500.

Auckland City has also provided advice through one of its Community Arts Coordinators, Gail Richards, and some very practical help has come from The Tile Depot in Glen Innes who have supplied a truckload of old and broken tiles to get the design started.
