Presented in an industrial shed at the Corban Estate Arts Centre in West Auckland FRESH EYES will use light, dark and shadow as a dynamic platform to illuminate, hide and reveal how a group of young people see and share stories that resonate for them. In the words of the participants – ‘How we see it”.
