A feature from our NinjaArt exhibition was a large and spectacular mural of a pair of angel wings that comprised of hundreds of paper feathers individually designed and decorated by young people.
Connor, who is a former participant of the NinjaArt program and now a co-facilitator, said taking part in the program gave him the opportunity to express himself artistically and gave him space that allowed him to build his confidence and interpersonal skills.
“Everyone was so welcoming of me and encouraging of each other. The whole session was beautiful, it has felt like a safe haven to me and a home away from home,” Connor said.
