Shout out to Young Carers_ National Carers Week Celebration

October 18, 2019 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm AEDT

Carers ACT invites all Young Carers (12 to 25 years old) to a street party (all included) to acknowledge the work they do and celebrate with music, food and much more!

Come to Civic Square (just outside the Canberra Theatre) on Friday the 18th of October from 2 to 5 pm. (For those of you in high school and college, we are liaising with your schools so you can be there at 2PM. Make sure you talk to your youth worker, pastoral officer or student services) or call us on 6296 9908.

On the stage

Liv Li, who once was a finalist on The Voice, has agreed to at least one hour concert and Haylee Karmer has taken time out from Mr Woof to DJ for us

Food and drinks

We have three food Vans for you: Gorilla Dogs, Yiannos Kebabs & Pure Gelato

Photo Booth

Take as many pictures by yourself and with your friends as you like! and once that’s done, use the special pictures to help us create a mural with the faces of Young Carers!


Our grafitti artist Anthoni G will be there to teach you how to spray paint and then will create a collaborative grafitti art piece with your help.

Adults Jumping Castle

Do you remember how it feels to jump until you are out of breath? We have hired an adult jumping castle for you to jump yourself happy!

Giant Games

Just for fun we thought to hire a giant Jenga and a giant Connect-4 for those who prefer something quieter

Please register upon arrival to receive a wristband that will entitle you to access all the above activities

Also,if at any time you need a bit of a quiet space; the Library on the square has set aside a quiet area exclusively for Young Carers.
