Here are the latest events, projects and activities imagined, performed and created by our Mixit community.
Alumni Success Stories: Dr Brook Shiferaw
Each month we catch up with one of our Alumni to see what they're up to now and acknowledge their continuing connection to Mixit
A Creative Journey
As a teenager Fardowsa Mohamed followed the footsteps of her older sister and brother through the doors of Mixit and never looked back. Going on to study medicine, Fardowsa now works as a doctor and writes poetry in her spare time. Here we present the first of a series of stories highlighting the creative projects of Mixers past and present.
Mixit in Hamilton
In the July school holidays we took Mixit on the road for a 3 day workshop in Hamilton.
Mixit: It's all of us
Celebrating our phenomenally successful project that has touched the lives of thousands of people, this book tells the Mixit story. Drawing upon the voices of participating rangatahi, their families and artists together with Wendy Preston, the Project Director it explains the context, challenges and triumphs of the programme’s first twelve years.
Mixit Director Wendy Preston in The Generosity Journal
We’re thrilled that Mixit Director Wendy Preston is featured in the current issue of The Generosity Journal created by The One Percent Collective.
Mixit Micro-donor programme
Mixit is a non-profit charitable organisation and relies on donations, big and small, to keep going. As young people we want to encourage our peers to be generous, and help them to see that it is not only the wealthy who can contribute to meaningful social change. Being a Micro Donor means gifting a little bit, but committing to do it regularly.
