JOIN THE 2016 NATIONAL YOUTH WEEK PLANNING COMMITTEE!

We need YOU! Enthusiastic volunteers aged 15-25 are being called to action.

As members of the 2016 National Youth Week Planning Committee you will assist in planning and decision-making for your festival – the 2016 KickstART Festival.

National Youth Week 2016 will run from 8 to 17 April and is the largest celebration of young people on the Australian youth calendar.

This is your chance to learn what it takes to build and manage a large-scale community event, we want you to help design the festival that you want to see. It’s a great opportunity to gain hands-on experience in a friendly environment where you can help promote young people’s ideas and experiences to the rest of Western Australia.

Presented by Propel Youth Arts WA in partnership with the Department of Local Government and Communities, the KickstART Festival is a burgeoning annual celebration of young people that delivers free arts workshops, discussion forums, markets, performances, live music, special events and activities, throughout the Perth Cultural Centre each April.
