The Northland Youth Summit Arts Festival is an annual event which is held in a different location around Northland each year. It is a free event for youth aged 12-24 in Northland with a limited number of places available.

Experts in their field facilitate and mentor youth in various creative workshops over 3 days. The workshops include Music, Film, Painting, Carving & Weaving, Dance, Wearable Arts, Theatre and Creative Technologies.

All youth stay on site for the entirety of the event with the facilitators, mentors and event organisers at a local marae. All youth are catered for over the 3 days and transported to the event from different areas around Northland.
