YOH Screen Fest Live Showcase
YOH Screen Fest 2021What is it?
YOH Fest is an exciting, annual ‘Arts’ festival, that engages students in Health Education through the fun of the Performing and Visual Arts - and it is open to all schools across Western Australia. This year’s Act-Belong-Commit YOH Fest will be run with a different format - promoted as a ‘Screen Fest’; because it will be virtual.
YOH Fest creates a unique opportunity for young people, to explore important health issues that are highly relevant to them - and choose to express their viewpoints through dance, drama, film, song, or visual art.
Now in its twenty third year, YOH Fest has grown to become a trusted vehicle for effective youth health promotion, that sees thousands of students participating every year.
Traditionally, schools presented their creations at one of the live heats held across the state. This year had to be different, however - amidst a global pandemic, and amidst the government responses created to address the ever-present uncertainties, because of it. So because of this - we created a ‘virtual’ platform the festival - as well as a live one!
This has allowed all students to still be involved in the 2021 Act-Belong-Commit YOH Fest - regardless of their location! Students simply stayed where they were, and submitted their entries online.
We are excited to present a selection of entries, showcasing some of the incredible Dance, Drama and Short Film talent submitted into this year’s festival available to view from the 29th October 2021.
Reaching out to Regional WA From isolation we've increased our community engagement
YOH Fest has adapted to all the uncertainty and unpredictability sprung on us in 2020, by the Corona Virus pandemic - and from it, this ‘virtual’ showcase platform was created. This has not only allowed the Festival to continue, it has fortuitously also highlighted the potential and opportunity that exists - for all schools to participate from even the most remote communities across Western Australia. This has been an unexpected and pleasant surprise.
The wonder of our 2020 results speak for themselves. Well Done!
YOH SCREEN FEST IS RETURNING
Register your school for 2021. No-one knows yet, how 2021 will pan out with the pandemic. But at this stage, we presume the traditional ’live’ format will resume in 2021. However, due to the unprecedented success of using the ‘virtual’ platform - it too will be retained! This gives participants the option - of entering through either platform - in 2021. Registrations open 9th November!
