It's taken eight years – and some stubborn determination – but a maverick art club in Tonga is winning over its conservative community.
The Se-le-kā Club started in Nuku'alofa back in 2008. It has now become into a safe haven for vulnerable young people and a place for young artists to experiment with techniques and materials. But their work ran into resistance from a number of older Tongans, who worried that traditional artforms were under threat.
Lynn Freeman asks two of the club's members - co-founder Tevita Lātū and publicist Virginie Dourlet - what its first group of young artists wanted to draw.
