Friends Who Are Going
Event description


In just 72 hours, you will experience the highs, lows, love, and pressure that make up the world of business. You will meet the most amazing friends and mentors, along the way building your very own business.

According to the Foundation for Young Australians (FYA) ‘The New Work Order’, 60 percent of students are currently being trained in jobs that will be radically changed by automation.

We invite you to come and join the Fiftysix Family for an exciting three-day workshop in Brisbane where students will have the opportunity to create and innovate using new technologies.

Registrations are open to all kids aged seven to fourteen-years-old. Due to the popularity of school holiday workshops, it is anticipated that all places will be taken very soon after registrations open. Parents should be online when registrations open if they wish to secure a place.

Ticket purchases come bundled with a Fiftysix One Kit worth AU$199.

There will be a professional photographer capturing moments from the workshop and all students will need a parent/ guardian to complete a Talent Release Form on the opening day.

The purchase of one ticket contributes to the education of one child in a disadvantaged community. Fiftysix Creations will also be providing lunch on Day 3. Students will be required to bring a packed lunch on the first two days.

Please email tia@hellofiftysix.com if you have any questions regarding this workshop and registrations.
