<IN.SCRIBE> YOUTH ARTS PROJECT 2014
Supported by Regional Arts Fund, Arts NSW I launched the <in,scribe> Street Art Mentoring Project pilot in Byron Bay. The project had over 60 applicants from across the region and 12 of those lucky young people were selected. Over an 8 weeks program the <in.scribe> project brought together a groups of creative youth including youth at risk to participate in a positive, creative, self development program that provided a creative platform for self expression. The project worked to develop youth's creative language, learn & develop artistic skills, explore creatively personal values and themes through art therapy interventions and arts mentoring. The project produced two public artworks including the now iconic "Brunswick Heads Mermaid" mural. The project was celebrated by the community by a public art launch and a series of four youth art post cards produced featuring the projects artworks.
