Jaack Black

Kia ora everyone my name is Jaack Piki Te Kaha Junior Black and I am 20 years old. I'm so stoked to have been blessed with this opportunity to run this new creative space here in Papakura for young people to come and do their thang. Anyways I’ve pretty much lived here in Papakura all my life so I do consider the K home. I major in dance and acting and do try to sing every now and then - not the best but hey ain't no harm in trying haha. I have seen a lot of things happen here in Papakura but never have we had a space like this for our young creative people to come and express themselves. So yup thats a little about me.

Richard Kennedy-Walker

Yo, What's up fam, My name is Richie and I'm your average boy from the legendary hoods of South Auckland Papakura. I am a real socialite, love getting out and about, going on adventure, doing those unexpected spontaneous trips around the city and being real invested in with all my friends & whānau.
Also I am a very creative person, Absolutely obsessed with Visual Arts, Music & Photography because it's a way that I can express my self creatively and be more expressive with my thoughts and opinions.

So yeah that's a little insight to who I am!

Bonnie Schache   My name is Bonnie Schäche, and I'm 17. (But I wish I was born in the 80s!) I've been homeschooled along with my 6 siblings, and raised my entire life in Papakura by my parents. My absolute passion is the sharing of each of our unique perspectives through creative arts. Personally I love to speak through my photography. Music is also a huge part of life for me. My life is firmly based on my Christian faith, and I am always striving to make His world a better place!  I am so excited to get more involved in our community through this space!
