Join us to celebrate the positive contribution young people make to the Boroondara community during Victorian Youth Week (Friday 5 to Sunday 14 April 2019).
We are calling on young people of all abilities to tell us what it’s like to “walk a mile in their shoes”. The Mile in My Shoes project is an opportunity for young people to participate in a creative, engaging and fun activity that enables them to explore self-expression, share their story and look toward the future.
Those aged 12 to 25 are invited to paint or decorate a canvas shoe, giving the community an insight into young people’s goals, aspirations and dreams for the future. The activity will be facilitated by qualified youth workers and supported by an art therapist.
This free event will be held in the Community Arts Space at the Hawthorn Arts Centre from 11.30am to 3pm, Monday 8 April 2019 (first day of the school holidays).
