Symposium (11th & 12th September)

Symposium is a community-based and locally driven initiative to nurture a culture of skills and knowledge-sharing for local young people.

If you’re between the ages 18-26, these are the workshops for you!

The festival strives to build a foundation of small business skills, creative skills and life skills through means of live workshops.

Symposium is bringing together a team of people to share their skills with you. From writing and animation, to general life-skills and even how to get involved with local councils.

This is an easy, no-pressure type event. We’ll be hanging out, connecting and learning. Sign up to one, or sign up to them all!Keep an eye out!
