Vibe Alive Mildura (November 12-13)

The community of Mildura is preparing to play host to students from all across VIC, when Vibe Alive hits town on November 12 & 13, 2008.

And joining the hundreds of students expected at the event will be former Australian Idol Casey Donovan and star of So You Think You Can Dance? Courtney Walter. The two stars will be on hand to offer aspiring young singers and dancers advice and inspiration.

Vibe Alive is a two day festival for young Australians of all backgrounds that incorporates music, sport, art, education and healthy living in a high-energy, youth-friendly setting. Vibe Alive is an exciting new event series funded by the Australian Government’s Community Festivals for Education Engagement program – a program which supports targeted events that encourage school attendance, retention and healthy lifestyles for all young Australians, in particular Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students.

Vibe Alive offers students the chance to sing, dance, play, create and learn in an environment that allows them to express themselves, share their talents and celebrate Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures.

Participants also have the opportunity to explore healthy living and career options and boost literacy skills.
There are five Vibe Alive festivals scheduled to be held around Australia from August to November, with the communities of Coonamble, Port Augusta, Kalgoorlie, Mildura and Rockhampton playing host to their respective states, with schools all across the country invited to take part.

The Mildura Vibe Alive will be held on November 12 & 13 at The Victorian P0-12 College of Koorie Education, Mildura Campus, Benetook Ave Mildura, behind TAFE.

“The community of Mildura is right behind Vibe Alive, and we’re really excited about bringing our event to this great township,” says Gavin Jones, executive producer of Vibe Alive.
