Frankston’s Sheldon Headspeath expresses his understanding of the struggles faced by young people. He aims to make a difference working with council youth workers and getting Frankston youth involved in a street art program. The creative art projects help young people develop valuable skills so they can transition through challenging times.

Bullying, homelessness, volatile family environments and instability are realities that many young people face. With the experiences Sheldon has from growing up in Frankston, he was inspired to make a difference. Sheldon sees street art as an effective way to help kids develop life skills, such as teamwork, scheduling, communication and completing a project under instruction. “I would have jumped at the opportunity to be involved in something like this and I feel it plays a huge role in changing (young people’s) direction for the better.”

Recently, Sheldon has finished a project that involved many young people coming together to produce a Frankston mural near the entry ramp to Bayside Shopping Centre. The artwork that now greets commuters as they enter Frankston has been heavily praised by the public. The mural received a lot of positive public feedback while it was still a work in progress, which generated confidence and pride in the young people working on it.  

Using street art, Sheldon aims to evoke self-worth, belonging and purpose in Frankston youth within positive community relations. Sheldon remains to inspire Frankston youth with many projects around the community. He aims to develop as many art spaces as possible, hoping to engage young people in beneficial creative endeavours.
