Each evening from 6-8pm young people will be present to share their art, and the exhibition will also be open through the day on the 25th. See Te Ora Hou’s post for more information:

I hope you’ve booked it in fam – POLYPHONY is NEXT WEEK! Come along on either NEXT Tuesday or Wednesday evening between 6-8PM to catch young people from our community share their art pieces for the first time. Come and hear their stories – highlighting what’s RAW & REAL in their lives today.
If you can’t make it out on either of the evenings, we got you covered, the doors will be open all Wednesday for you to come and check out the art pieces, the only difference is – the young people won’t be there to korero to their pieces until the evening. Still well worth checking out. THE BIGGEST YOUTH VOICE ARTS EVENT OF THE YEAR – we’ll see you there 😎”
