Youth re­de­fine art

Auckland City Harbour News - - News -

If you want to see the world through a young per­son’s eyes, head to the RE:DE­FINE art ex­hi­bi­tion this month.

Or­gan­ised by Youth­line, the show ex­am­ines how re­la­tion­ships with friends, fam­ily and the com­mu­nity strengthen young peo­ple’s lives in New Zealand.

The art­works were en­tries in Youth­line’s Youth Art com­pe­ti­tions.

Youth­line Auck­land chief ex­ec­u­tive Stephen Bell says the aim of the ex­hi­bi­tion is to help young peo­ple achieve their po­ten­tial.

“The ex­hi­bi­tion gives young peo­ple from all back­grounds a chance to come to­gether to cre­ate art, ex­press what it means to be a young per­son and be ac­knowl­edged for their con­tri­bu­tion,” he says.

Or­gan­iser Nao Guy says the ex­hi­bi­tion gives young peo­ple the chance to ex­press them­selves in a dif­fer­ent way.

“We wanted young peo­ple to tell us about their ex­pe­ri­ence of be­ing young, which is some­times quite dif­fer­ent to what adults or so­ci­ety might think,” he says.

RE:DE­FINE runs un­til May 25 at the Aotea Cen­tre. For more in­for­ma­tion, visit www. youth­
