Are you passionate about art? Would you like to learn new skills?

For the first time in Swan Hill Youth Arts Festivals history, we are looking for two Ambassadors!

The YAF Ambassadors are the faces of the festival, are aged between 16 and 25, and help lift the profile of young local artists and performers in the community.

We are looking for two people who are highly motivated, have good time management skills, are flexible and who live locally. The YAF ambassadors will have a strong sense of community and be willing to participate with local partners.

The Swan Hill Youth Arts Festival

The Swan Hill Youth Arts Festival (YAF) celebrates and enriches the talents of young people in our community. There are so many young, passionate and talented people in our community contributing to the arts- but with limited recognition.

YAF gives young people the chance to not only be recognised, but acknowledged, encouraged and affirmed as young people with a passion, talent or interest in the arts.

With the support of Swan Hill Youth Inc and Swan Hill District Health, a collection of young people take on the initiative and organise an event that reflects the change young people want to see in the Swan Hill community.

Expanding on its inaugural inception in 2014, YAF highlights the importance of youth planning and development undertaken by young people themselves. It also captures and celebrates the positive contributions young people make to Swan Hill, Robinvale, Manangatang and everywhere in between!

The festival will feature live performances and open art spaces featuring work by artistic and talented young people.*
Please join us on the day and help celebrate the artistic talents of young people in our communities.
