This activity is an initiative from the Linx Youth Space.
For local youth, the place to be on the weekend was the fourth annual Youth Injected festival.
Up to 1000 people attended the festival held at Lota Skate Park.
The event was broken into two days, Saturday, the festival and Sunday the Battle of the Bands competition.
First time organizers of the event Emina Ajanovic and Rita Berak from Babi Youth and Family Support were pleased with the turn out.
“Through the funding for the Youth Injected Festival this year, Brisbane City Council has provided more resources than ever before,” said Emina.
This year’s event proved slightly different to previous years as there were loads more stalls and free activities such as a mobile rock climbing wall, jumping castle and necklace, badge and candle making.
“Is this really free?” was heard numerous times by youth waiting in line.
“Young people usually have to pay for these sorts of things, this gives the youth opportunity to try out their skills and have fun”, said Rita Berak, youth arts worker for Linx youth space.
“That’s what we wanted, to provide things that they [the youth] would not normally do.”
The popular skate and bike competitions have always been a successful crowd puller for the festival.
Regular judge Mark Brimson from Skate Australia and local judge Stuart Howe from Wynnum Cycles were amazed with the level of competition and the extraordinary skills of the young competitors.
Even though slow to start, the graffiti comp organized by YACCA (Youth and Community Combined Action) located at Babi, was a huge success. Click "Read More" for more pictures!
