We encourage everyone to attend and support our Youthtown events. Often there’s an opportunity to take part in the event management if you’re interested.
It’s customary to end our Creative Arts Programmes with a performance showing the skills that have been built by attendees such as at Taupo’s music festival, Auckland’s Hip Hop show-case and the annual East West Orchestra/NZ Song Writer’s performance.
Around these events, the Youth Squads are regularly drumming up other events for both Rangatahi and Tamariki to attend.
If Youthtown isn’t the face of a community event, you can be sure we’ll be playing a part in it - look out for us!
We'll keep you posted on what’s coming up next in your location - check your location page on our website.
Example : Annual Zombie Event
The annual Zombie event in Christchurch is led by the Youth Squad who help the younger ones reach a bigger level of scary each year.
Many of our participants have learnt to make particularly disgusting sores.
Example : East Meets West Showcase
Our annual “East Meets West” musical showcase is a fun evening of inspiring performances from our talented young musicians, MCed by Mike Chunn from Split Enz.
It involves the best of eastern and western musical instruments, and songs from NZ’s young Songwriters.
