Adobe Youth Voices in Auckland


It was delightful meeting with the team at High Tech Youth (HTY) in Auckland, New Zealand today who run the NZ Adobe Youth Voices (AYV) program.

As outlined on their website, HTY have four core objectives that align nicely with AYV:

  • To empower young people and communities to become more capable, creative, and confident life long learners.
  • To foster the growth of a learning community, through the sharing of ideas and support.
  • To encourage in young people the development of a positive identity and belief in their potential, through linking cultural knowledge and values with technology.
  • To champion, support, manage, research and implement services and projects that will further the above objectives within New Zealand and the Pacific


Studio 274 is one of a series of studios set up by HTY throughout New Zealand and the Pacific. This studio serves the suburbs of Auckland and is well equipped with editing workstations and even a sound studio.



Have a look at some of the work produced by the creative young people through the HTY programs.
