What does it mean to be a young person in these uncertain times?
In collaboration with Arts, Design and Music students from NMIT, Whispers in the Streets shares rangatahi voices and reflections on uncertainty and what that means to them here and now, in Whakatū. Watch their visual arts interpretation unfold on bollards and listen to their whispers in unexpected places around town.
With contributions from the Arts, Design and Music students (and their tutors!) from NMIT, the MYNTies (Multicultural Youth Nelson Tasman), rangatahi musicians from Commotionand local sound artist Max McAlpine, the audio whispers are now live in seven locations around our CBD (see map below!), while the visual arts whispers will takeover three Phantom Billboards bollards from Sunday 23 to Sunday 30 October.
The students were supported by NMIT tutors Doug Stenhouse and Klaasz Breukel in developing their concepts and delivering these art works.
