Matariki Rhythmz is an exciting youth performance event happening in Auckland during the month of Matariki Rising (June – July). This is a chance for youth between the ages of 13 and 19 to show their stuff on stage; mixing Polynesian cultural flavours with original compositions, spoken word, music and dance.

Youth Arts Space is an initiative we’re excited about. YAS is a youth multi-arts workshop incorporating various mediums, such as music, dance and visual arts to develop positive youth identity and skills. Our first ‘Art Space’ workshop looked at improving Rheumatic Fever awareness in our communities and was held during the School holidays at MIT (Manukau Institute of Technology, Faculty of Performing Arts). It was a great opportunity for young artists to be involved. Click the image to find out more.
YAS has also been part of our #MatarikiRhythmz programme as an aid to developing participants strengths in the arts towards performing at the big show.
If you would like to book in a YAS programme at your centre or school, please get in touch through our ‘contact us’ page.
