Runner Up Winner of $500: Kayla Pearce
This lovely young lady, hailing from the Hawke's Bay, has had a passion for dance and movement from a young age and wants to share it with the world. Kayla aspires to develop a creative platform for youth - to be able to connect, find courage, move, feel and release through the form of dance and art.
Currently being able to focus on her own creative journey will allow Kayla to be able to open this space when the time is right. We love your dream Kayla! View more of Kayla's inspiring work on Instagram @kayla.sensei.
Share my art with the world. Art speaks truth and inspires younger generations to connect with themselves, for people with a light within to find the courage to fight for it. I want to open a space, a creative space that will be used for more than art, I've wanted this for so long and it seems only possible for people who have money!!. I want a safe space for creatives and closet creatives alike to move, feel, release. A space for dance, art works, freedom, I'm determined to evolve what we think of art and give others a pedestal to achieve their dreams! In doing so I will achieve mine!
