Last Friday night was the launch of the National Youth Week photography exhibition entitled 'It starts with us" and the launch of youth week in our region.
It was fanstic. We had a huge turn out - we gave away so many prizes and the youth were so excited to be on a galleries walls for the first time (and win prizes). I was very proud of our youth that night.
It was a mammoth effort to get it all done and coordinated but somehow these thing eventually come together.

The exhibition is now open till the end of youth week at ArtsCape most days from 10-2pm.
On Friday I will be hosting another youth week event where we do a walking art tour of our town. I want to present to the young people the options available to them as artists. I want them to see that you do not need to go anywhere to be an arts worker or an artist (or both). All youth are free to attend but I do ask for RSVPs to the firstname.lastname@example.org address to be placed. Please share with any local youth you know interested.
