The Koorie Youth Summit (Summit) now in its sixth year, is the largest gathering for Victorian Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander young people aged 18-28 years. The Summit is an opportunity to gather from around the state to connect with each other, discuss what is important to us, be proud, learn, share and celebrate our culture.

This year, the Summit theme is; Past, Present, Future

Together, we will look at our past, our present and our future, as we yarn on country and around the camp fire under the stars. The weekend will feature deadly speakers, performers and artists on the beautiful lands of the Wurundjeri and the Wathaurong/Wadda-Wurrung people.

Let’s make this the biggest Summit yet! More info and announcements to come! It’s going to be deadly.
