Sydney teens will show Pyrmont residents ‘the kids are alright’ at next Saturday’s free Party in the Park concert, sausage sizzle and community day, and everyone’s invited to join in the fun and games!
Party in the Park at Pirrama Park, supported by the City of Sydney and local businesses, gives young people the chance to lend a hand and take on event-organising roles.
Manager Youth Services Aliza Denenberg said previous years’ popular events had helped change local opinions and united the community, and this year’s celebration would build on that success.
“Party in the Park is a wonderful opportunity for young people to showcase their talents on stage and hone their event management skills, bringing together the community for a day of dancing, games, face-painting, music and food.
“It’s a fantastic way to build relationships and proves young people have the enthusiasm and drive to give back to the greater community.
“We hope even more residents will join us at beautiful Pirrama Park to see what the local young people have achieved.”
Party in the Park will be held on Saturday 19 January, from noon-3pm.
Live music coordinated by local performer Dazzle (pictured) will include sets from Sydney youngsters such as soul singer Mike Champion, Glebe songstress Lily-anne Vamos, Monique, D-minor and M-mad.
Local businesses have sponsored a free barbecue lunch, and there’ll be prizes and games including ‘bouncy boxing’ and old-school running races.
Youth workers at the City’s Maybanke Youth Centre have helped local teens to organise the show.
The City of Sydney is committed to making sure Sydney’s young people’s needs are met, with six youth programs in operation across the local government area.
Pyrmont Youth Program provides a space for young people aged 12-24 to socialise and mingle and take part in educational and recreational activities, including drop in, internet, outdoor sports, art and crafts, cooking, music and school holiday fun.
The centre also refers clients to crisis counselling services, emergency accommodation and provides employment advice.
