Present Projects

Below are some of the projects we have or are still focusing on for this year.

Matariki Rhythmz

Matariki Rhythmz is a new and exciting youth music and dance event happening during Matariki Rising (June – July). It is a high school music and dance comp but also a great way to express culture, identity, belonging in Aotearoa. Check out our Matariki Rhythmz website for more at www.matarikirhtyhmz.co.nz


Youth Arts Space

This is one of our new initiatives similar to our previous ‘PUNA’ (Performing Urban Nesian Arts) programme but running as shorter collab format workshops. These workshops offer space for artists from a range of backgrounds – music, dance, theatre, visual arts to come together to create in a free and open environment. Check out our first Youth Arts Space workshop for 2015, the Rheumatic Fever Creative Hub run during the April school holidays. Check back for more workshops and look out for our revamped PUNA programme coming soon.

YPT Afterschool Workshops

YPT runs a number of after school workshops for youth 8 – 13 yrs in Mt Albert.  This is an exciting series of programmes where youth have the opportunity to learn computer coding, media skills such as filming and editing, and theatre/acting skills.
