Hearing Young Voices

Aboriginal Power Cup 2015

About 400 young people in Years 10, 11 and 12 attended the 2015 Aboriginal Power Cup (APC) carnival from 4-6 June 2015.

Students from 37 teams participated in a team painting competition which encouraged them to express their right to culture and the APC theme ‘be the change you want to see’ in an artwork. Better World Arts artists and staff assisted with advice and encouragement.

The winning artwork, painted by the Port Lincoln High School girls, will be presented to the Minister for Education and Child Development with a certificate of authenticity, to be held in trust for South Australia’s first Commissioner for Children and Young People.
