MY SKATE is presented by Griffith Regional Theatre and Griffith City Council and is presented by MYFEST - Murrumbidgee Youth Xtreem Arts Festival committee
MYFEST’s aim is to create high energy, hands-on, street-based arts activities, designed and delivered by young people for young people.
With MY SKATE there will be plenty of opportunities to cut in on the action.
Melbourne hip-hop sensation Joelistics wil headline the street party concert in the park adjoining the skate park as well as leading a songwriting workshop, while Branch Nebula will be “in residence” at the skate park, building up to a spectacular improvised performance, Snake Sessions.
Griffith Regional Theatre manager Raina Savage said it would be another fantastic MY FEST Xtreem arts event.
“There are loads of talented young artists in our community and many more young people interested in exploring the arts – pushing the boundaries of what is usually on offer,” Ms Savage said.
“We are listening to them and supporting them to create the kind of events they want to be part of; to try stuff out, to perform, to take risks and make things happen.”

Griffith City Council events co-ordinator Karly Sivewright, said MY SKATE would be one of council’s most innovative and inclusive events.
“It has been so much fun working on making this happen,” she said.
“It’s fun, it’s free event, it is suitable for anyone of any age - you can go hard or sit back and chill with your friends.
“We hope all young people in Griffith will get down there and celebrate this great new youth precinct.”
