1000 Words Gallery is a creative project featuring up to 20 Rotorua senior high school students from schools in the Rotorua District. All art works on display have been created to the theme of "WHAT IT'S LIKE GROWING UP AS A TEENAGER IN SOCIETY TODAY"
Leading up to this project, discussions around this theme have led to the consideration of other related contemporary issues that affect all our lives (the Syrian refugee crisis, social media, self-esteem etc). This show will be a window into how young people think and what is important to them, or what is part of their world view.
This project will engage the public in fresh ways through our distinctive gallery that is completely different to other surrounding Art gallerys. The Art students are working in cohesion to create pieces of art that relate to us.
This Project is will benefit the broader community and neighborhood, as we are apart of the REVIBE Rotorua Project also, money raised from this student lead project will go towards the fulfill van. We have purposely chosen to support the Fulfill van because it is a not well known charity, this charity contributes greatly within our community, focusing on children from low income families. This is will not only contribute to Fulfill van through much needed funding but also bring greater awareness to this great cause. The Fulfill Van is a Catholic based charity in Rotorua, what they do is go to areas such as the Fordland’s and Pleasant Height, giving out food for children, in which each child is given a sandwich, piece of fruit, milo or soup. They rely on funding via donations from the church and community and are often short of needed funds.
The duriation of this project is two weeks, from the 15th of Januaray to the 31st. We have applied for funds with the local Lakes Council but we will not be able to know if we have been approved intill next year which is a problem as the opening date is 15th of January. If we are unable to recieve funds it will be to late for us to be able to fundraise enough money to kick start the project. If Fundsfrom the council is approved, funds raised through this platform will ALL be donated towards the fulfill Van Charity.
IMPORTANT UPDATE**** Funding has been approved early, all funds from this platform will go towards Fulfill Van
