Every year Brisbane Youth Service works with over one thousand young people and
their children. Here are some of their stories.
Chris had his first solo exhibition, Out of Paper, at Artrageous during February 2016.
Imagine yourself at the age of 17. You and your five month old son have fled from an unhealthy relationship, you have no social or family support to help you, and are left with no home. This was the start of my journey.
I was kicked out of home and I was homeless for a good four months. I had no money and no food.
Before BYS I was living on friends couches and feeling like a burden on them and their families. I couldn't return home as my mother was emotionally abusive towards me.
