Be Seen Be Heard during Youth Week 2017

30/03/2017

Georges River Council Administrator John Rayner is encouraging young people from across the local area to get involved and celebrate Be Seen, Be Heard National Youth Week 2017.
 
Council has teamed up with Headspace, 3Bridges Community, Shopfront Arts Co-op and the Salvation Army Oasis Youth Support Network to present a really interesting and exciting range of activities to get involved in.
 
There’s ‘Live and Acoustic’ for solo musicians, ‘Beats, Rhymes and Strokes’ for rap enthusiasts, the ScribbleInk Youth Literature Awards launch, a youth film festival and a team race around the Georges River area.
 
“The vitality injected into the Georges River community by its young people is invaluable – they’re incredibly creative, adaptable and diverse,” he said.
 
“Youth Week is a wonderful way for young people to celebrate who they are, and share their ideas, talents and contributions with their peers.
 
There are many good reasons to get involved, so get your friends organised and help celebrate,” he said.
 
Some events have a limited guest capacity, so Mr Rayner encourages people to get in early to ensure they don’t miss out.
 
Council will also be launching a Youth Consultation Survey in conjunction with Youth Week, which provides young people with the opportunity to have their say about what is good and what could work better in the Georges River Area.
 
The survey will be online from Thursday 30 March – Friday 30 June 2017.
