Youth get groovy for peace event
“YOUNG groovers” in Warwick have been making the most of their spare time by creating a day for fellow “young groovers” at this year’s Peace Festival.
The POP Day will be in Leslie Park on Saturday, April 30 where there will be workshops, art, crafts, games, food and music.
In the lead-up to the big event, which will run alongside the Aboriginal Showcase at the park, young enthusiasts have been busy planning and preparing.
A keen group gathered at The School of Total Education to use their school holidays to the maximum and take part in a sign painting day.
For Imogen Sloss and Isobel Gordon, it’s been a great opportunity for them to get involved in the Peace Festival while spending time with good friends, old and new.
“One of our friends were part of it two years ago and she suggested we get involved, so we did,” Imogen said.
On Monday, April 18, the crew will get together to make bags for the big event so festival-goers can carry their purchases around.
They will be working from 10am to 5pm at SOTE and they will welcome new members.
There will be lantern making on Tuesday, April 19, from 10am to noon and a community junk orchestra workshop on Thursday, April 28 and Friday 29th.
Over the Labour Day weekend, POP Day is just one part of an action-packed schedule of events organised by the Peace Festival crew.
This year’s theme is “Everybody Counts”.
