Brittany got in touch with Kiersten of the Casula Powerhouse to find out why they are all Smiles this week.

In honor of Youth Week, Operation Smiley Face will be encouraging local young people to express themselves from 1:00 pm on Saturday, April 13.

Director, Kiersten Fishburn said the day will feature a petting zoo, a bushwalk and a ‘good fortune’ teller.

“ There will only be good fortunes being told at Operation Smiley,” she said.
“ The day has been organised by the Casula Powerhouse Arts Centre Youth Committee.”

Being involved with the local youth is of the utmost importance to the Casula Powerhouse, who have dedicated their famous water tanks to graffiti art.

Ms Fisburn said the Casula Powerhouse hope to encourage artistic expression in young people.

“ It’s absolutely critical we work with young people,” she said.
“ As an arts centre it is our role to provide the opportunity for everyone to have a voice.”

The Casula Powerhouse Youth Centre Youth Committee aim to bridge the age gap at Casula Powerhouse learning from the staff and teaching them about the younger generation.

“That’s where we found the Youth Committee has been really helpful,” Ms Fishburn said.
“They speak the language!”
