Youth Fest 2023 kicks off: celebrating all young Victorians

The annual month-long celebration, dedicated to the creativity and accomplishments of all young Victorians, is set to be a vibrant showcase of talent, collaboration, and community spirit.
31 August 2023

Young Victorians have been hard at work collaborating with their peers, local councils, schools, and community organizations to co-design a roster of over 110 unique events and activities taking place all over the state.

Tara Kinsey, Youth Development Officer at Mitchell Shire Council, shared her thoughts on the importance of the program to the Seymour Skate Comp event, stating that:

 “it allows us to celebrate young people and skate culture which is often perceived in a negative light.” 

Mahira Sobral, Community Education Manager at Bridge Darebin, continues this sentiment, agreeing that:

"Youth Fest has been a remarkable platform that recognizes the talents, ideas, and valuable contributions of young people to the cultural fabric of our communities."

With Youth Fest 2023 now underway, Victorians can anticipate a month filled with creativity, energy, and the collective celebration of our young cohort.
