Powerhouse Youth Zone at Godiva Fest – a creative blast

We had a great weekend at the Godiva Festival this year, where the Powerhouse Youth Zone – a joint effort by Media Mania and Imagineer – was an explosion of creativity and brilliant Cov talent.

The PYZ included a wealth of local and upcoming talent, including a great line-up music on the Resonate Stage, the cycle-powered, steampunk carousel and our six-metre-high Lady Godiva. Imagineer’s Transformations programme presented live street art with Grit Arts, and giant puppets with Autin Dance Theatre and Mr Cleaver’s Monsters.

In the creative tent there was feathery denim-recycling-heaven and the ‘Phoenix Rising from the Trashes’. We enjoyed the nifty moves of Elite Dance, GAPA, Rebel ManifestoOpen Theatre and Hoops in Space.

Special signage created by Sam Williams Studios Ltd and Transformations, with professional development and participant support from Extraordinary Us.

Only 363 sleeps until we do it all again!
