This event is a prelude to an annual callout for young people to join the Neo Teen Ambassadors. Neo Teen Ambassadors are involved in planning events in collaboration with a committee and assist with the programming and delivery of each of the events. At the heart of Neo is teen engagement eg youth-led activities for youth. AGSA is looking for young people aged 13-17 with big ideas and who want to be involved and join the Neo Advisory Committee in 2020, Those interested are encouraged to get in touch.
Teens are invited to this introductory event to delve deeper into Tarnanthi, and the world of contemporary Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander art. Take the opportunity to connect with artworks and each other through live music, artist-led workshops, sketch tours and youth-led activities in a parent-free zone alongside emerging South Australian artists.
