Festival for career opportunities

EXPLORING career opportunities through cultural engagement is the rationale behind the Deadly Days Dreaming My Future Festival.

The festival is designed for young Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and provides practical activities to help them explore education, training and employment options.

North Coast TAFE will host the festival at the Coffs Harbour Education Campus from September 20-22.

Director of community development and Aboriginal engagement, Heather McGregor, said they are expecting more than 2000 students, from 42 high schools from Tweed to Taree to attend.

The three-day program includes entertainment, workshops and cultural activities.

Ms McGregor encourages young Aboriginal people and their families to come to the festival and get involved.
