It’s with great excitement that we announce the Festival of Youth Development happening in Christchurch between the 16th – 18th September 2019.

The festival has four key aims:

  • To support and catalyse people and agencies to work together better,
  • To foster and enable genuine connections in our community,
  • Celebrating young people and the youth development sector,
  • Adding value to, or addressing a need of the youth sector.

This three-day series of events will focus on how, as a wider sector and community we can continue to do things together, but better. This action focused festival is a chance for us as a wider community to showcase examples of connection and collaboration, and how to take it to the next level. The festival has two main aspects;

  • Open sessions – where you can choose from a range of events, performances or workshops that are being run by a diverse range of people under the festivals umbrella, all linking to our key aims and theme. There are four open sessions over the course of the three-day event.
  • Festival events – are those that are for all attendees of the event. These events are the opening and closing ceremony, the daily Key Note lunch session and the evening celebration event.
