Erika & CoCo Flash are bringing their Rainbow Storytime and Living Library sessions to Nelson! Rainbow Storytime is a chance to hear books about acceptance, diversity, inclusion and being kind, play some fun games and meet some fabulous drag queens with plenty of colours and glitter! Open to children of all ages. Living Library is designed around learning about how the duo became Erika & Coco, how they identify and is a chance to ask any questions you have about the LGBTQIA+ community.
Applications are open now for the Volunteer Nelson Young Leaders Programme. Participants work towards a 45 Credit Level 3 Certificate in Youth Work. The structure of the programme is that you do a week of intensive training in late January (24th-28th) covering off topics like Māori operating principles, ethics, youth culture, project planning etc. and then you have 6 months to complete practical assignments, a project and mentoring a young person.
The programme has had great success in recent years with participants being part of and coordinating a huge variety of projects. Despite Covid this year participants have managed to pivot projects to things they can do online, such as an online art exhibition, a website for school leavers, instagram campaigns and more.
