Ōtepoti Youth Space

Funding Stories

The Ōtepoti Youth Space initiative was built from young people's desire to have a safe, accessible space for youth, especially rangatahi at risk, in the central city of Ōtepoti | Dunedin.

The Ōtepoti Youth Space grantee video captures how the Community Gallery in central Dunedin was transformed into a pop-up youth space for two weeks in May - coinciding with Youth Week (7th-15th May).

Otago Community Trust was one of the core funders of this pop-up youth space ensuring a programme of activities and events allowed Ōtepoti youth to connect and express themselves in a supportive youth-led environment.
