Express Yourself Youth Week

This Youth Week, the theme is "Giving Back is Giving Forward", and the young people at Toi Ora are gifting us a glimpse into their creative worlds, with a multi-layered, interactive arts exhibition at Toi Ora Gallery. 

The exhibition features work by two Toi Ora artists, Joshua Rainbow and Jessica Varalee. There will also be works from a number of young artists in the Express Yourself visual arts group, as well as photography from our 'Humans of Hendo' project with youth in alternative education in West Auckland.

Exhibition Opening

The opening night will feature live performance from young people and tutors involved in Toi Ora and Circability groups, and will include singer-songwriters, circus performers, 'world' music, break dance and more!

A 'mass participation' artwork on the theme of 'Giving' will be on display and there will be opportunities to create and add your own piece of artwork to the installation.

Food and drink will be provided. Free and open to all. Please share this event and come along with your family and friends!
