<IN.SCRIBE> YOUTH ARTS MENTORING PROJECTS 2020
OCEAN ALLEY - BYRON SHIRES LONGEST STREET ART MURAL
Over 2020 a group of 6 talented young people worked collaboratively to complete the final 20 meters of the now longest street art mural in the Byron Shire. The Ocean Alley is located at the Ocean Shores Shopping Center, Ocean Shores, NSW, Australia. The project was delivered in two segments pre-covid lockdowns and post-covid lockdowns, creating an important creative focus for the participants. The young people were selected from previous <In.scribe> Youth Arts Mentoring Projects to participate. Each young person designed and painted their own components of the work.
BYRON YOUTH SERVICES MURAL FESTIVAL
Celebrating reopening its doors Byron Youth Services post Covid lock-downs commissioned six talented young people to be mentored by Karma Barnes and Nickolla Clark to invigorate the entire entrance to the service with murals. The young people designed and installed their artwork along a series of walls stretching across one the entire front of the service. The artworks explore a range of themes including identity, connection to Country, Black Lives Matter and the perils and challenges of 2020, bush-fires and climate change.
