Promoted as the 'Colour Your Life Youth Expo', the community-based
event will run from 10am to 2pm. It will feature an interactive
graffiti workshop by local graffiti artists The Hype Twins who will be
auctioning off a signed piece of their work with the proceeds going to
Taree's local youth refuge. The band SOAR will be providing music
throughout the festivities, with support from soloist Jake Davey.
There will also be a tug-of-war competition and a game of touch football.
But the highlight of the day will take place on the colour attack
field, where enthusiastic participants will be sprayed with large
clouds of brightly coloured dust. TAFE students have been organising
this activity with help from Greater Taree City Council youth
engagement officer, Russell Ingram, and it's certainly shaping up as
the most popular (and messiest) event of the day. For maximum
effectiveness, participants are encouraged to wear white clothing.
The event is open to anyone in the community who wishes to attend and
entry is by gold coin donation.
