Expressions of Interest open for free youth creative workshops

Are you aged 18 to 25, and want to explore your identity, share your stories or connect with others?  

Expressions of Interest are now open for three creative workshops to be held in October and November. Hosted by the City of Casey, in partnership with Feifei Curiosity, the free workshops will give youth of all genders and cultures the opportunity to explore what respect means to them through dance, photography and poetry.  

The workshops align with Council’s strategic objectives under A Safe and Equal Casey: A Gender Equality and Prevention of Violence Against Women Strategic Plan 2022-2032, and seeks to provide a platform for community led and strengths-based initiatives, enabling people from diverse multicultural and multilingual communities to build positive, equal and respectful relationships.  

Through the workshops, we will be able to capture the voice of Casey’s diverse multicultural and multilingual youth on how they define respect, and help them to build positive, equal and respectful relationships.

Following the workshops, participants will showcase their performances and display their creations at the 16 Days of Activism Respecting Youth Voices event at Bunjil Place on Wednesday 6 December.  

All workshops will be held at Lynbrook Community Centre, 2 Harris Street, Lynbrook.
