Youth on Health
Youth on Health Festival is one of Australia’s biggest health themed youth performing and visual arts events that gives school students throughout Western Australia and the Northern Territories, the opportunity to take part in an innovative and revolutionary approach to health education. This annual festival requires school students to get together to construct and perform their own dance sequence, drama play or art piece based on a relevant youth health theme.
The festival is unique, being the only one of its kind in Australia. It’s organised, managed and run predominately by the young and young at heart with invaluable assistance of youth leaders amongst us within the community. This gives the festival a feeling of vibrancy and fun that can only be experienced at YOH Fest. The experiences that participants encounter are amazing and life changing.
Thousands of young people participate in YOH Fest events held across Western Australia and the Northern Territories, performing their productions in some of the best regional venues around to hundreds of audience members.
The festival is recognised by Healthway in Western Australia, as a leading forum for youth health education through the arts. The key objective of YOH Fest is to educate and empower young people throughout Australia to enable them to make positive and healthy life choices. Participating students gain a sense of energy and liveliness, leadership skills, self-confidence and respect for each other, as well as an understanding of relevant youth issues.
