Beach Sleepers-Youth Arts Project

Throughout May, June and July Byron Youth Service will be running a supported youth arts workshop exploring the issue of homelessness in the Byron Shire.

The Beach Sleepers project offers young artists and change makers an opportunity to participate in a free 6 x week production workshop, gain access to equipment/resources and access an experienced artist as a mentor.

This 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 workshop will be curated into a group exhibition celebrating the achievements of participants while raising dialogue around homelessness.

We are looking for artists and non-artists alike who have something to say about key social issues.

Workshops will be held on Wednesday afternoons/evenings commencing 15th May at B.Y.S and will run for 6 x weeks.

Transport is available if required.
