Youth Week Nurtures the Now in 2019The City of Albany comes alive this Youth Week with an array of events involving and celebrating the young people of our city.

Youth Week WA runs from April 13 to April 22 and is an annual state-wide celebration of the positive contributions young people make to our community. This year’s theme is ‘Nurture the Now’, showcasing the importance of looking after ourselves, our communities and our planet with an emphasis on what we are currently conquering.

Multiple workshops, a movie night, games night, disco and a pool party are just some of the events that the City of Albany in partnership with multiple agencies have organised to create a full calendar of activities for the week.

Storm the Beach Festival presented by Act, Belong, Commit is the headline event in 2019 to be held on the Middleton Beach foreshore and includes live musical performances, an obstacle course, oversized novelty inflatables, beach games, stand up paddle boarding, art and youth markets.

Community Engagement Manager, Julie-Ann Gray said young people are involved in every aspect of the festival from concept and planning to delivery and volunteering.

“The youth of Albany have a lot to offer the community from perspective, knowledge, curiosity and passion. This is a celebration of the vibrant and diverse young people that live, work and study within our community,” she said.

These events are inclusive of everyone, all abilities, race, cultural background, religions, sexuality and gender; with most of the activities at no, or low cost.
