PAST PROJECTS

We’re proud to say that w'e’ve worked with young artists from all walks of life, as well as established organisations, to create some truly memorable events and projects.

 
 

SILENT DISCO CITYWALK

We regularly put young musicians forward to perform at Silent Disco Citywalk, an initiative led by online storytelling website and events entertainment platform, Papaya Stories.

 

Kaipātiki Sounds Great

Kaipātiki Sounds Great is a musical event on Auckland’s North Shore that generates solidarity between the local highschools through the creation of an annual music festival, as well as other smaller musical events throughout the year. YANZ assists with general implementation of these events, including creative direction, as well as advsing on topics such as youth connection and community sustainability.

 

THE THING ABOUT MUSIC

For 2 years running, we’ve worked with local musicians and crew on Auckland’s North Shore to produce ‘The Thing About Music’ - a night for collaborative interpretation of what music means to us as performers, an audience and a community. With previous special guests including Dave Baxter (Avalanche City) and Jamie McDell, this event is one which the YANZ team will continue to run for years to come.

 

CREATIVE OPEN MIC NIGHTS

Our monthly creative open mic nights, held at creative hub MoveSpace on Dominion Road in Auckland, brings together creatives of all forms to stimulate self-expression and honesty through the arts.

 

Strange Summer Streets

We teamed up with Britomart Group and Play It Strange to produce a weekly summer event, showcasing young musos every Saturday afternoon in Britomart’s Takutai Square.
