Beach Sleepers-Youth Arts Project
Throughout May and June Beach Sleepers has been offering supported youth arts workshops exploring the issue of homelessness in the Byron Shire.
So far, workshops have been run with a group of artists at Byron Bay High School who are creating multi-media artworks using collage, portraiture, video and sound.
On Thursday 13th June the boys from the BYS Links2Learning program hosted Musician, Rapper and Activist- L-Fresh the Lion. Some interesting raps were written.
Beach Sleepers is an opportunity for young people to build technical skills, understand individual strengths and creativity and build confidence as artists within the community.
Artwork created in the workshops will be curated into a group exhibition celebrating the achievements of participants while raising dialogue around homelessness.
Stay tuned for some more workshop announcements and exhibition dates.
