A living legend collides with the next generation at Soul Food
Media Design School hosted iconic Kiwi artist Dick Frizzell as part of the Soul Food series on August 8, streaming the event live on Facebook for an international audience.
During his presentation, Frizzell shared career highlights and personal anecdotes before answering questions from the audience.
Frizzell is one of New Zealand's most successful and high profile contemporary artists. His work, which includes Four Square Man and Mickey Tu Tiki, has become firmly entrenched in our pop culture.

He was followed by a presentation by Computer Clubhouse 274, a community-based organisation that helps young people develop skills and build confidence through the use of technology.
Media Design School has followed the achievements of Clubhouse, based at Clover Park in South Auckland, since its early days. Based on the passionate concern of community leaders and an influential board the Clubhouse has established a technology hub that allows school students to decide what they want to create, and helps them to achieve it.
The concept of whanau/family group, and the value of tikanga Maori [living by Maori values] has built a strong nurturing organisation, and created young leaders with the confidence to build successful futures.
