Pop Up Youth Art Space opens for SheppARTon festival

Yesterday I was inspired yet again by the youth of Shepparton at the opening party of the Bridge Youth Service Arts Pop Up Space as part of the SheppARTon festival. Thank you yet again to Jamie Lea and co. for doing so much in providing artistic outlets and experiences in our community. At the opening there were proud youth, inspired youth, proud parents and supportive community members. There was great music, great art, and of course great food. For some it is the first time they had performed or shown their work publicly for the first time. They did an amazing job and walked away a little more confident and encouraged to do more. That is exactly what I personally love about things like this.
COME VISIT during the festival (on until Sat March 21st) 10-6pm Monday – Friday & Saturday 10-2pm – it’s in the Tower Arcade, off Maude St Mall, Shepparton.
It’s a warm and cosy little hub where everyone is welcome to visit for a little while or to linger longer or stay and create or learn some new skills or just hang out and chat.
Coming up
Today - dreamcatcher workshop,
Saturday – tie-dying
Tuesday  – a Paper Crane origami workshop with Ruby at 3-5pm .

Keep an eye out on The Bridge Youth Service facebook page to see what is happening.
