Youth Voice – Youth Place – Youth Space… all happening here in Albany!
There’s more to Albany than you think!
The Upper Harbour Youth Caucus are working together with the Albany Community Coordinator to make life great for youth in Albany. They are helping to create youth space, ensure youth have a voice andthey’re heard, and have a great time making things they want to see happen!
On October 17 2015 from 6-11pm, the Upper Harbour Youth Caucus ran Off-Beats Youth Music Festival at Vanguard Military School. The evening was the climax of months of discussion, meetings and planning to pull-off the event. Artists include X-Factors Stuss, Bric-A-Brac, Tusk and Torn and Jin and the Lims, a DJ to finish the night with a rave, among others. The theme for this year’s event was NEON-NIGHT. The night was alight with UV lights illuminating all things white, glow-sticks, fairy lights and other glow-in-the-dark materials such as balloons, string, spray paint and tape.
The students of the Off-Beats team did a fantastic job in leading the event. Even through challenges, we are very pleased with the event and believe wholeheartedly that it reached the objectives set from the beginning: growing leaders, developing talent, and building community.
