A photo exhibition exploring young people and local issues will be in focus at Campsie Library from Tuesday 31 January to Friday 17 February and Bankstown Library and Knowledge Centre from Tuesday 21 February to Friday 3 March.

The My Face in Our Space project, which began in June last year, called on young people, aged 12-24 years, to document their stories through the use of multimedia. The project, which consisted of four workshops, delved into identity and sense of self through short film development and photography sessions.

With the project now coming to fruition, one of the mentors and subjects, Paniora Nukunuku, 22, said he was eager to see how the public will view his life story.

“I captured the stories of these young people and myself on video, and used the sound off the footage to overlay onto the pictures that were taken of us,” he said.

“It was very self-exposing doing something like this. I started my own story by telling how my dad moved our whole family over from New Zealand to Australia and then go on to tell how my Mum introduced me to the Belmore Youth Resource Centre (BYRC) when I was 12.”

For the past 10 years, Mr Paniora said BYRC was always one of the places he felt most safe, and offered a plethora of opportunities.

“They always used to support me when I was a kid - whether it was allowing me to take part in their holiday programs, going on camps to the snow, giving me help with homework, feeding me if I needed food or letting me hang out if I just needed a break,” he said.

“I would say one thing this project personally made me realise or remember is that the BYRC really makes young people feel like they belong in the community.

Having been a part of BYRC here for so long, Mr Paniora said he now feels the next generation needed the exact same guidance.

“This youth project is just one of the ways that I’ve been able to connect with young people who are considered to be ‘at risk’ of anti-social behaviour and it has given me the ability to connect them with the appropriate services and supports, in a fun and engaging way.”

An opening night will be held on Tuesday 31 January at Campsie Library from 5.30pm.
