I Hear You – Creative Challenge 2017

The 2017 theme I Hear You is about celebrating and hearing the voices of young people and encouraging them to listen to others around them.

This theme is centered around creating and building empathy in children, helping them work

together, and responding to one another with consideration.

Through this theme, Creative Challenge aims to cultivate the act of listening to others and present the sharing of ideas, opinions and concerns through art. These ideas have a wide field of reference, enabling and encouraging children to explore a variety of places and/or ideas that are central to their wellbeing and particularly the wellbeing of those around them. The interpretation can be literal listening to one another or metaphorical listening through empathy and compassion.

In 2017 Creative Challenge will visit 19 communities Port Hedland, Newman, Rockingham, Leonora, Kalgoorlie, Wiluna and Onslow supported by our Principal Partner, BHP Billiton, and Coolgardie, Bunbury, Gascoyne Junction, Kalbarri, Mt Magnet, South Hedland, and Punmu/Kunawarritji Presented by Go for 2&5
