building the retro rocket ship and other exciting adventures!

I truly have the best job in the world! I love working with creative young people, and kickstART youth markets project is no exception. I am working with a really talented and inspiring team of young people, and such passionate colleagues. A dedicated micro-site and blog have been set up, workshops are being held, stall holders are getting ready to sell their wares, an art trail is being planned . . . the list goes on, and the flagship event for National Youth Week WA 2011 is going to be extraordinary! Oh, and we are sending out moleskines across WA for a Sketchbook project and pop-up gallery too!

The workshop venues at City Farm & REmida (and their staff) are just delightful and run amazing organisations of their own. Lewis Horne has worked his magic with scrap metal and the ideas of young people. You can see more images of the retro rocket progress here.

I am so totally impressed with the work that is being produced. You can check more out on the Propel Youth Arts WA website too.
