Hot on the heels of the unprecedented success of the RISE festival last summer, Oi YOU!, in partnership with the YMCA and Canterbury Museum, will present SPECTRUM, its latest street art extravaganza, from 14 February to 10 May 2015.
With 2 venues, 8 exhibitions, 10 big walls, 17 of the world’s best, 22 Banksy’s and 890 T-shirts, SPECTRUM promises to be even bigger and better than RISE, which attracted 248,000 people.
SPECTRUM will encapsulate every tint and tone of the world’s favourite art form and explore the myriad of ways that street artists get their work seen. It will spread across 2 venues, the YMCA on Hereford Street and Canterbury Museum, as well as the city’s streets – where another series of blank walls will be transformed into stunning works of art.

2014 Charity Golf Tournament
We had a great day at Weedons Country Club on Friday 21 November for the 3rd Annual YMCA Charity Golf Tournament. After a shaky start with the burning BBQ we were lucky to have an amazing day with the warm nor’west and refreshments along the way. A huge thanks to all of our sponsors and players – we hope to see you all again next year.

- YMCA Gift Giving
Do you feel like you are going through the motions buying unappreciated gifts for family and friends? How about making a meaningful gift for a disadvantaged student, a child in need or an adult living with an intellectual disability instead?
By making a donation of $25, $50 or $100 in the name of a friend or family member, you can choose one of four community programmes to support on their behalf, and you will receive a gift card to send to them. The card will tell them a donation has been made on their behalf and there is room inside for you to write your own personal message.
Click here for more information and to purchase online, or pop into the City Y or Bishopdale Recreation Centre to pick one up there. One card per donation.
