'OUR SPACE’ ART PROGRAM
‘Our Space’ Art Program was designed to create a space of belonging, creating the feeling of being part of the community and a way to express who young people are by painting something that represents themselves.
It was interesting watching young people get involved in various stages of the program such as sketching, canvas painting and painting on records. The program surprisingly meant so much more to some, using art as a way of coping while others simply enjoyed creating art in a supportive environment. One highlight was using spray cans to create art on records.
The young people had an awesome time during their celebration day where they celebrated and shared their achievements with each other.
