Bellambi’s big day out

NATIONAL Youth Week is underway and to celebrate the north will have its own Big Day Out this Tuesday at Bellambi.

Youth Week events in Wollongong range from a six-hour music performance in the Crown Street Mall, to an art competition, skate day and wrap up party. Casey Donovan, 2004 Australian Idol winner, will also perform at Bellambi Neighbourhood Centre’s Big Day Out on Tuesday April 17.

The Bellambi Neighbourhood Centre’s Big Day Out will be held from 11am to 4pm and will feature performances from local bands, acts and various activities. Donovan will also make a guest appearance.

Wollongong Lord Mayor Gordon Bradberry said all the events are linked to this year’s theme for National Youth Week – Imagine, Create, Inspire.

“I’d really encourage young people to get out and about and see what is on offer for them over the next 10 days,” he said.

“Whether it’s live music, skateboarding or putting paint to paper, there’s something on that will inspire them during these school holidays.”

Young people attending the various events are also encouraged to fill out It’s My Future: Youth Survey.

The survey and Youth Week activities program of events can be found on Wollongong City Council’s website.

The survey is a chance to for young people to tell council what they want Wollongong to be like in the future.
