Art Speaks is an annual art symposium focusing on inspiring younger artists to build sustainability into their long-term practice, whilst also retaining a focus on social justice and global issues in their expression.

The event boasts some of New Zealand’s most established social justice and cultural artists including Mike Weston (of Weston Frizzell fame), Rosanna Raymond (Pacific Sisters), and Jos Wheeler (photographer documenting the Tuhoe raids amongst other events).

We are also extremely happy to welcome two international artists who are leaders within their own communities to the event – Robert Young, a Aboriginal artist from Melbourne who focuses on celebrating the identity, heritage and culture of Australian First Nations People; and Korean hip-hop legend and social commentator (now lecturer) MC Meta – who will also play the concert at Q Theatre later that same evening.

Our mission is to support new and aspiring artists on their journey by providing discussion and inspiration from successful diverse mentors across art forms both from New Zealand and internationally. We want to be a catalyst for youth arts empowerment and advocate the importance of soulful art in every community.
