Our People: Youthworker, artist and the new meaning of FTP


At school Silivelio Fasi’s workbooks had very little on the inside. But every inch of the covers were filled with his drawings.

Fast forward a few years on and six children later, Silivelio is a Christchurch youth worker who has put his mark on his childhood suburb.

His artwork of superheroes on Hampshire St, is a story about the people of Aranui.

‘I always felt Aranui was that [superheroes] kinda sense. They are strong people and always overcome anything that comes their way.’
