Youth rejuvenate Medina Sheds with artwork

City of Kwinana and Medina Residents Group gather young people to beautify Medina.

Ten young people met with one artist across three workshops to create 18 vibrant panels for the windows of the Medina Sheds.

The sheds were originally built behind, and separate to, a row of shops on Pace Road in the 1950s to provide storage space for the businesses.

Local residents keen to further beautify the vicinity of the sheds approached the City to engage local youth and an artist.

The City of Kwinana contacted artist Nathan Hoyle who then worked with local young people to enliven the exterior of the sheds by installing colourful panels in the window spaces.

Mayor Carol Adams said two of young people engaged were Medina residents and the workshops were held across February and March at the City’s Zone Youth Space.

“The first workshop was to used to create small design ideas then the participants added their design elements to the window panels,” Mayor Adams said.

“Six bright and joyful tints were used to ensure colour coordination and flow and to complement the existing mural by artist Melski McVee that surrounds the Shed,” she said.
