About this event

This is a LIVE EVENT ONLY

During Conscious Cities Festival 2020, a group of students from Youth Inc. took part in a podcast recording in the historic Imprints Bookstore.

These young people set out to explore what it meant to work, play, study or live in the infamous west end of Adelaide's CBD. They spent nearly 2hours unpacking benefits and limitations such as transport, influences on identity and cultural offerings followed by an incredible reimagining of Adelaide with all of its potential! Through this process, they discovered that what was really missing was a safe space for diverse young people to feel safe and experience a sense of belonging.

The conversation was turned into an incredible zine style artwork by local artist George Rex and was presented to the Hon Lord Mayor, Sandy Verschoor. During the presentation, the students pitched an idea for a youth hub.

In this session, these young people will take you on the journey from ideation to creation! Discover where they are now on their journey and what they are doing to best represent the interests of young people in the City of Adelaide.
