The Cube Youth Engagement Group

 

File No.: CP2015/05658

 

  

Purpose

1.       To receive a presentation about The Cube and its Youth Engagement Group.

Executive Summary

2.       The Cube is a New Zealand collective impact agency that works with young people and disability service providers to ensure that the people who access services are included in the decision making process. The Cube works with young people with disabilities who live, work, study or play in Auckland. The Youth Engagement Group is part of the governance of The Cube.

3.       Young people from The Cube will present to the Youth Advisory Panel an initiative that the Youth Engagement Group is working on for Youth Week 2015.

4.       The Youth Engagement Group has been disenchanted with the disability sector and the way in which branding and marketing of who they are and their interests are put forward in the public eye. They have a key aim in 2015 to change the branding of the sector and to create a more accessible sector for young people who experience disabilities.

5.       The youth week project is focused on recognising that young people in the sector have a future and that they can have a legacy just as big as any rock star.

6.       The project will represent young people with disabilities in the style of iconic album covers, movie posters, inspirational people, works of art and photography. Its aim is to build young people’s confidence and know that they too have a voice in Auckland communities: just because they are young and have disabilities doesn't mean they can't be rock stars.

7.       The project has everything it needs for the event, through the generous donations of time, expertise and in-kind promotion and gifting of resources such as Silo 6. 

8.       The project aims to:

·    exhibit 12 pieces within the Silo

·    photograph individuals 23 March - 3 April 2015

·    create a 2016 calendar of the exhibiting images which can be sold during Youth Week and all proceeds go to the Cube Youth Engagement Group for them to use on other youth focused projects

·    take the exhibition on a nationwide tour.

9.       There are three key delivery phases to the project:

·    between 18 – 23 May, the lead up to youth week, the exhibition will show re-mastered album covers and invite the community to connect with young people at the Silo 6 exhibition space. On 24 May the Youth Engagement Group will host the start of Youth Week

·    sending photos across New Zealand and asking New Zealand icons to participate in a “photos in spaces with famous faces” campaign: though them having their photos taken with the group’s album covers and uploading them to The Cube facebook page

·    taking the exhibition into other spaces around NZ and giving New Zealanders a chance to see why the group thinks our young people are rock stars. The group has been offered the waterfront/Wynyard quarter containers for the week 25 – 31 May 2015.

 

 

Recommendation/s

That the Youth Advisory Panel:

a)      thank the young people from The Cube for their presentation about The Cube and its Youth Engagement Group.
