Dream Seeds® Training and Creswick Workshops – May 2023

You are here:

Everyone has a story, and our young leaders learned how to write about their lived experience in a storytelling workshop delivered by the ABC Heywire team on Tuesday 18th July.

The Youthrive team, alongside a diverse group of young rural and regional leaders, visited the ABC building in Melbourne as part of their ‘Melbourne Mini-Break’ leadership event.

Our group got to tour the ABC building and hear from sound, lighting and on-air technicians about the ‘behind-the-scenes’ aspects of television. Two young Triple J presenters also shared their unique stories that got them to the positions they are in today.

It was a very rewarding experience for many, allowing these young people to look inward and gain a deeper understanding of where they come from, what ‘home’ feels like, and what is important to them.

They were asked to answer questions like:

  • What’s a challenge you’ve overcome?
  • What are you passionate about?
  • What makes you or your town unique?
  • Why do you like living where you do?
  • What recent event has had a big impact on your life?

One of the participants, Ella, really enjoyed the ABC experience. ‘Getting to see behind the scenes of the ABC studio was really interesting and eye opening. I enjoyed seeing the Q&A set!’

Thank you to ABC and the Heywire team for hosting our 30 rural and regional Victorian leaders in an excellent workshop!
