Online Games

Bored at home? No need to be bored anymore. Between 3pm to 4pm every Friday, Boroondara Youth will be interacting with young people through online games. Games will rotate between Draw Something (Classic), Words with Friends (Classic) and Chess. Anyone who is interested can jump on Boroondara Youth’s Facebook page for details at 12 noon each week.

The Social Imagination project

Interested in the creative arts? Then why not get your creative juices flowing and get involved in the Social Imagination project hosted in partnership with the Gallery of Young Art (GoYA)?

Through Facebook, the project aims to bring together young artistic people (aged 16 to 25) from a diverse range of creative practices to be the inventive hearts and minds behind the next GoYA exhibition. 

The exhibition will take a multidisciplinary approach, showcasing visual art, music, dance, creative writing and performance, which has been created by project members in isolation.

There are also weekly reviews from our friends at Boroondara Youth on Arts, Culture and Entertainment at 12noon, Wednesdays. Head to our Facebook page to find out more.
