Massey High School's graffiti art project

From Afternoons with Jesse Mulligan, 1:25 pm on 13 May 2016

It all started when a 15 year old student, Lennox, got in trouble for tagging. Massey High School's Youth Support worker Sarah Candler realised the best way to get kids like him engaged again was to work with the skills and interests they already had, so she enlisted the help of the TMD crew – a group of graffiti artists

With the help of the TMD crew, students embarked on a massive art project – painting graffiti art on the large water storage tank at the back of the school. 

Jesse Mulligan talks with Sarah Candler and two of the students involved, 15 year old Phoenix and 14 year old Karauria.
