Oxfordshire Youth Takeover Day

For this project, I worked with Oxfordshire Youth during thier fundraiser take over day. The aim of the event was to raise awareness for the Oxford-based charity and celebrate the many talents of the young people in our community. There were a range of performances on the stage situated in the centre of town throughout the day including dance, spoken word and musical performances.

 

During all this, I was situated throughout the day beside the stage, creating this live painting which aimed to capture the essence of the days events and talents of these young people. 

This painting was then auctioned off and all the money raised by the bid war was donated to the charity.

The illustration depicts the events of the day and aims to celebrate the various talents of the young people of Oxford. I wanted to create a sense of community and togetherness which emphasizes the great work the charity does in the local area. 

Check out the video linked below to see how I created this piece and to get a little insight into the takeover day:
