Event description

YACVic's Reshape Our Future youth forums are finally happening and coming to Melbourne and regional Victoria!

The youth forum is a funfree and powerful event for young people aged 12-25 to have your say on what matters to you and make new friends who care about the same things as you.

After lockdowns kept us physically apart, it’s so important now more than ever for a space where young people can come together, learn and take action to Reshape Our Future together. 

When and where?

  • Warrnambool: 3 June, Deakin Uni, Brother Fox
  • Melbourne: 10 June, Melbourne Museum
  • Wangaratta: 14 June, Wangaratta Performing Arts Centre
  • Robinvale: 22 June, Robinvale Leisure Centre
  • Bairnsdale: 24 June, Forge Theatre & Arts Hub

Note: The Reshape Our Future Youth Forum was originally scheduled for May 2021 as an event happening across five different locations at the same time, but due to COVID-19 and feedback from young people, the event was postponed until it could be run in-person at a later date.


  • We are the leaders of today and tomorrow
  • Allyship as a verb: Let’s make real change
  • Pathways to Power: how young people can make a difference
