FAIRGROUND July 14-15 2016
YACWA’s Fairground conference takes place every two years as an opportunity for the youth sector to network, share ideas and common experiences whilst focusing on statewide issues of importance to young people and the sector.
This year will be the fifth Fairground conference and follows similar events in 2008, 2010, 2012 and 2014. The conference vision is for a youth sector event that is the most topical, relevant, results-orientated youth conference ever held in Western Australia.
The conference theme is ‘Fairground’, which reflects an opportunity to encourage social inclusion through the continued development of an even playing field for young people across Western Australia.
The focus will be on dialogue and discussion, and will include engaging and interesting presentations, workshops and activities, in addition to valuable information and tools for those who work for – and with – young people.
Highlights will include national and international keynote speakers, the highly-anticipated young people’s panel discussion, and an issue-based sector summit.
The Fairground conference is expected to attract around 350 delegates, made up of primarily youth sector professionals from across the state. More than 350 delegates attended the event in 2014.
