Rainbow Welcome

Each week we will throw down some photographic challenges for you.  Ones that will help you to stretch your skills.  You can choose to do the challenges or simply give us some images that are of the colour of the week. It is all up to you.

There are weekly Zoom sessions if you want the support of a master photographer and the chance to meet some other rainbows / allies online.



Drop Your Images Here

This workshop series is optional but is available for individuals to take to help them with mindful creative practices.  It is designed to help you find your blocks in your creativity and support general wellbeing while at the same time making art for the exhibition.   It also has creative challenges that may help you to improve your photography and art.

How to turn any cool image on your camera role into a Monochromatic Image

@nzrainbowchallenge As part of the rainbow challenge im going to show you how to take a multicoloured image and turn it monochrome - just one colour. The NZ Rainbow Challenge is a collaborative Art Exhibition made up of monochromatic images created by you and other rainbow youth and allies around NZ. Our inspiration came from a young rainbow person who was concerned that Christchurch didn’t feel as rainbow friendly as Wellington. So we figured if that was the case it may be the case in other parts of New Zealand as well so we had an idea on how we can support Rainbow youth around the country.
