The future’s looking boldly bright and glistening with talent.

Grab your crew, roll out your picnic blanket and join us for a youth-powered gig by the sea featuring the region’s best young ocean-inspired creatives. Presenting the work of up-and-coming filmmakers and photographers on the big screen, paired with curated sets and live scores by the region’s best young musicians. Supported by Community Bank Tugun, this free, family-friendly event will feature:

Non stop rolling sets from the GC’s best up-and-coming musicians from leading regional programs including Youth Music Venture and PBC High Arts Excellence playing surf-inspired sounds

Catch finalists from the youth divisions of our Homegrown film and photo competitions, alongside selected short films. Meanwhile, photographer Luke Henery will run you through the art of portraits with a large format camera, then develop images onsite with his desktop darkroom. Wizardry!


Food trucks and maker’s market stalls will also be onsite, as well as forums for creatives at Flotsam’s free Media + Makers showcase event.

Don’t miss this FREE youth showcase stage on May 11 at Kirra Hill Cultural & Community Cenre from 2PM

Proudly presented by Community Bank Tugun- Bendigo Bank
