Young Members last field trip of the year! Enjoy a visit to Upstairs Gallery in Titirangi for an action-packed afternoon including an exhibition viewing, two artist talks, a short film screening and a drawing workshop.

Visit DOWNTOWN 23, an exhibition featuring four emerging West Auckland artists. With nods to graffiti, the urban landscape and the forever cool street-art-style paintings of Jean-Michel Basquiat, this exhibition challenges stereotypes of how young men navigate their journey into manhood in raw, unique and diverse ways.

After a chat with artists Java Leonard and Fauze Hassen, the group will move to the old film theatre at Lopdell House for a screening and discussion of Fauze’s short film, Photographing Dead Flowers. The event wraps up with an accessible-to-all, free-style drawing workshop by Java. Tickets include a non- alcoholic drink thanks to Almighty, and you can purchase alcoholic beverages as well.   

As a Member, you can purchase up to two tickets to this event, so bring a friend! Young Member events are designed for those under 40, but if you're young at heart, feel free to join.
