Northland Youth Summit Arts Festival

The Northland Youth Summit is an annual event which is held in a different location around Northland each year.

The 2018 NYSAF was the 5th Youth Summit targeted at young people to develop the confidence to speak up about the issues and future aspirations that matter to them and their communities. It is a free event for youth aged 12-24 in Northland with a limited number of places available.

Experts in their field facilitate and mentor youth in various creative workshops over the 3 days. In 2018 there were 7 workshops on offer being music, theatre, dance, film & photography, visual arts (printmaking), sculpture and 3D digital mapping and design.  All youth stay on site for the entirety of the event with the facilitators, mentors and event organisers at a local marae. All youth are catered for over the 3 days and transported to the event from different areas around Northland.

Check out the Film “Commissioners Message” created by the 2018 Film Workshop Group.
