RAW 2003 Youth Art on Show

RAW 2003 Youth Art on Show

Auckland’s youth are enjoying the opportunity of trading creative ideas and experiences with leading local artists and cultural workers.

The programme, entitled RAW, is a youth based arts project with a focus on providing a creative outlet for young people in Auckland to express their issues through the arts.

The first phase of the project ran at ignite03 at The Edge, 7 to11 April, with the second phase being held during the April school holidays at Auckland City’s Artstation in Ponsonby.

Tiffany de Castro, project manager and lead artist, says the programme targets youth who are passionate about exploring and celebrating identity through creativity. Tamati Te Nohotu and Reverend Mua Pua are leading the workshop with 15 young people from a variety of backgrounds. They will explore identity issues through theatre, storytelling and visual arts.

The workshop participants will create a visual statement in the form of ten “identity flags.”

Standing six metres high, the flags will be on display in Western Park, Ponsonby Road for two weeks.

There will be a ceremony and performance presentation on 24 April. Auckland City’s recreation and events committee chairperson Scott Milne believes the support of such programmes is integral to the development of the creative talents of Auckland’s youth.
