Kākano Youth Arts Collective

‘KĀKANO’ – SEED

Ki te mea ka taka te kākano ki te wāhi e tika ana ka tinaku, ā, ka pihi ake he tipu hou.

If a seed falls in the right place it will germinate and a new seedling will sprout.

Kākano Youth Arts Collective is a unique visual arts initiative for young artists aged between 12 and 20 years old, based at Corban Estate Arts Centre in West Auckland.

Kākano developed from a pilot programme in 2013 as a response to recognising the needs of some of the most vulnerable young people in West Auckland. Since then it has grown and to a hugely successful initiative, and has changed the lives of many young people.
