On the 20th of November cohealth Arts Generator and Brimbank Youth Services presented the Movement Makers Youth Arts Forum with partners Brimbank Youth Services, Wyndham City, Maribyrnong Youth Services, Arts Centre Melbourne and Footscray Community Arts Centre.
Movement Makers is a youth led-arts forum for young people, students, artists, educators and community workers that explores the rich experiences of young arts practitioners working across diverse community settings.
Featuring a platform for young arts practitioners working with communities to explore the power and impact of their work, it gives an opportunity for organisations to exchange and hear from the next wave of active, creative humans.
It was a day filled with interactive icebreakers, presentations, storytelling, performances, panel discussions and plenty of time to network with peers as well as sector representatives.
Movement Makers attendees were a combination of arts practitioners, young and established artists, local government representatives, arts organisations, friends and family.
We were blown away by all the hard work of the young people who were the drivers of the entire event as well as everyone else who made the space as powerful as it did. Let’s keep making a move!
Check out some of the movement made from the day!
