Submissions Open For The 2021 East Auckland Youth Visual Arts Showcase

The Howick Youth Council’s East Auckland Visual Arts Showcase is seeking artwork submissions from young artists living in East Auckland.

Our Youth Visual Arts Showcase is accepting all mediums of visual art whether it be painting, sculpture, animation, photography, or mixed media.

With 45 exhibited pieces of art last year, the showcase is an incredible opportunity for young artists to get a taste of what it’s like to show off their art in a real live gallery. The showcase will continue to have expert judging as in previous years, but both casual and professional submissions are welcome. 

2021’s showcase will happen over June in the Malcolm Smith Gallery at UXBRIDGE Arts & Culture in Howick Village.

This project is supported by the Auckland Creative Communities Scheme, UXBRIDGE Arts & Culture, Arts Out East and Te Tuhi. The Howick Youth Council (HYC) is proudly supported by the Howick Local Board to empower young people through projects and events.

This exhibition will be free to view and is open to submissions from youth aged between 12 and 24 who live in the area covered by the Howick Local Board. Submissions do not have to be specifically created for the showcase.

“It’s a heartening experience for our team to provide a platform where young artists in our community can gain insight into the art world. In its fourth year, we’re truly excited to see what will come forth in the showcase,” says HYC team lead Elaine Huang, whose volunteer youth council team is in charge of the project.

Gordon Campbell: On National Spreading Panic About The Economy

It is a political strategy as old as time. Scare the public with tales of disaster and stampede them into supporting your ideological agenda because they believe There Is No Alternative. Yet, if the NZ economy truly is as “fragile” as PM Christopher Luxon says it is... Then how come New Zealand has enjoyed a double AA+ credit rating from the international rating agencies for so long? If we have truly been in the thrall of incompetent tax, spend and borrow extremists for the past six years, how come our net government debt burden is only in the middling average of OECD countries, and how come our government debt-to-GDP ratio – however you measure it – is less than half the average for the Asia-Pacific region?..
