Event co-ordinator Blake Armstrong said the show provided a welcome opportunity for Dunedin’s young artists and performers to flex their creative muscles.
The exhibition began on Wednesday and finishes today and features art by young local people as well as evening events showcasing artists, dancers, performers and musicians.
The event had been organised to coincide with school holidays to ‘‘cap off the year’’ before exams, Mr Armstrong said.
While organisers had predicted there would be interest, ticket sales had exceeded expectations and the opening event on Wednesday sold out in under six hours.
‘‘It’s been a tough year for the creative industry, but there’s such an appetite for this creative outlet for young people.’’
With ongoing uncertainty around Covid-19, it was important to provide space for young people, many of whom had not had the chance to play music, dance or perform for an audience all year, Mr Armstrong said.
