Youth Art Exhibition 

The City acknowledges the importance of young people within our community, and to celebrate and promote the diversity within the 12 to 25 year old age range, we are excited to announce a Youth Art Exhibition held during Youth Week WA 2018. The aim of the ‘Who are you?’ Youth Art Exhibition is to provide a public exhibition space to showcase young artists, and provide the community with opportunity to access innovative,creative and fresh artwork.

Self Portraiture 'Who are you?'

‘Who are you?’ is an opportunity to produce a self-portrait expressing yourself as the unique, creative and exceptional human you are. We want to exhibit the diversity within our community so abstract, expressionist and surrealist art is encouraged.

Your art piece might represent the person you hope to become, a part of yourself you would like to express more, your past, present and future self, or perhaps how your culture, identity or past experience influences your day-today life.


If you are aged between 12 and 25 and live, work, volunteer, study, access services or visit the City of Vincent we invite you to submit your art.
