Street Chillz Drug Aware Youth Fest
The Shire of Murray Youth Council engaged the street art collective Graphite Crew to run art workshops at their free Youth Festival.
Over 50 young people participated in the event with final artworks showcased in the local library. The project focused on providing youth access to engaging arts activities in an environment free from drugs and alcohol
“(The event) brought people together, young people were exposed to art activities that they wouldn’t usually have in this area. It also allowed for youth to be seen as positive community citizens in the media as there can often be negative media.”
