SPACE | Youthful Exuberance

Harbinger is engaging young people in the design and improvement of public and community spaces for social inclusion.

Commencing in June, John will be working with three young artists from Moreton Bay Regional Council area on the Emerge project to realise public artworks for the North Lakes Youth Space. The young artists were successful in securing RADF funding for three public artworks and John will be a mentor and project manager to realise their projects.

Harbinger is providing some services in kind to support the young people’s engagement with social and public spaces. North Lakes’ community centre is currently being repurposed as a youth space will be launched in August.

Participants in the Vibrant and Creative City Placemaking Workshop involving members of the Lord Mayor’s Youth Advisory Council have enthusiastically presented their ideas and proposals to Brisbane’s Lord Mayor Cr Graham Quirk. The proposals included interventions and improvements for parks, community facilities, and other public spaces in suburban and urban environments to make them more ‘youth friendly’. The Lord Mayor responded warmly and positively to the proposals which will be presented to the local Councillors for further consideration.
