Offering youth opportunities

With National Youth Week at the end of the month, Creative Northland has launched the registrations to one of the biggest opportunities to Northland youth to get creative and find their inner voice at the 2017 Northland Youth Summit Arts Festival to be held in Dargaville on Wednesday 6 and Thursday 7 September.

The FREE two-day festival is open to 60 youth from all over the Northland region. The event has a proud history of giving our 12-24 year olds the chance to express what matters to them while giving them a platform, in which they feel comfortable in, to tell their stories.

The festival follows the 2015 summit: a two-day film workshop, where 50 participants created eight films on the subjects that mattered to them. The worthy film crew’s film about bullying was voted the favourite by the youth and mentors. This group of young women from Kaitaia went on to make another film to be entered in the ‘Making a Difference’ film awards in Wellington, where they were nominated for six awards and won two. Which then lead to them being awarded NZ Youth Group of the Year. This is a great example of how this event can be a platform to develop new skills and enable our young people to have the confidence to speak up about the issues that matter to them and their community.

The 2017 event will have the theme of ‘Our Voices, Our Stories’, and will offer a range of workshops run by experts in their fields of music, theatre, film, mural design and 3D digital mapping design. The youth will be a part of one of these creative workshops and will learn new skills which will allow them to express themselves in their chosen genre.

Applications are now open and organisers encourage anyone in the 12-24 year bracket to apply for this once in a lifetime opportunity.

Applications close 11 August.
