Description

Ari Oyi- 2017 Queensland Transition to Independence Month launch

Our Stories, Our Future

Join us for the official launch of the 2017 Transition to Indpendence Month in the Central Queensland Region.

We warmly invite all young people with an out-of-home care experience to come along. Carers, Child Safety staff, service providers and partners are also all welcome to attend.

Ari Oyi is an interactive, creative event celebrating young people transitioning to independence. You will experience:

  • musical performances

  • Indigenous dance and cultural activities

  • a range of fun workshops run by local artists, musicians, storytellers and acrobats, CQUniversity, yoga practitioners and more

  • digital and on-site displays of creative expressions from young people in care across Queensland

  • Parilla lunch, and

  • use of resort facilities, including pool.

Our hope is to celebrate the achievements, energy and proud futures of young people in care.

“Ari Oyi”

The words Ari Oyi were given by the Woppaburra people of Great Keppel Island. Ari Oyi means “sun corroboree”. Ari, the sun, is the provider of life with each new day and heals the land and all the people. Woppa (Great Keppel Island) is the first land to get the sun in this region and the start of the healing. Oyi- corroboree- is the way we share our stories, dances, thoughts and emotions.

Rosslyn Bay Resort

The Ari Oyi event will be held on the grounds of the Rosslyn Bay Resort, overlooking the beautiful and secluded Kemp Beach.

For any attendees who may wish to arrange accommodation before or after the event, Rosslyn Bay Resort Yeppoon offers self-contained accommodation on the doorstep of Great Keppel Island. Facilities include a swimming pool and BBQ area. Set amidst award-winning landscaped gardens, Rosslyn Bay Resort Yeppoon is just 45 minutes’ drive from Rockhampton Airport. Yeppoon town centre is 10 minutes’ drive away.
