Kāpiti Youth Council Update - Spring 2019
Otaihanga mural project
The Kāpiti Coast Youth Council worked with artist Theo Arraj and four students from Paraparaumu College, to spark the concepts for the project at Otaihanga Domain that are now a reality. Kāpiti Coast Youth Council member and ZEAL volunteer, Hannah Neal, has really enjoyed being apart of the process, from ideas on a whiteboard to the actual painting in the last few weekends of June, “Being at the painting days was special because it just goes to show how hard work can pay off and the connections you can make along the way are worthwhile. It gives a real sense of we can achieve anything we put our minds to.” The young people from the Kāpiti Coast Youth Council, ZEAL Kāpiti and Paraparaumu College are extremely proud of their work with Theo Arraj and are glad that both pieces will be completed for the Kāpiti Coast community, and their friends and whānau to enjoy in the Domain’s peak season, summer.
Festival for the Future 2019
In late July the Kāpiti Coast Youth Council attended Festival for the Future 2019 and were inspired by the array of incredible people doing incredible things. Panel discussions, workshops and entertainment filled the weekend programme and left participants inspired to be part of shaping our future.
The Kāpiti Coast Youth Council and ZEAL also held a hui recently to plan for the upcoming event, Youthoween, and do some planning for other projects in the works.
