Youth Speak Out: Travelling Exhibition

9:30 am – 6:00 pm

Launceston Library, 71 Civic Square, Launceston.

Youth Speak Out is an annual education initiative run by Reconciliation Tasmania since 2018 celebrating the next generation’s views on Aboriginal affairs. Tasmanian students from Year 5–12 enter art, multimedia, speeches, letters, poems, or whole class projects expressing students’ views about reconciliation.

Last year, Reconciliation Tasmania and Libraries Tasmania partnered to showcase selected artworks and poetry from the last six years of Youth Speak Out in a special travelling exhibition.

Youth Speak Out: Travelling Exhibition was featured at Libraries Tasmania in the Allport Library and Museum of Fine Arts, State Library of Tasmania, nipaluna/Hobart from November 2023 until February this year. Around 14 pieces have now travelled north to Launceston Library with the next phase of the exhibition opening there on April 12, remaining until June 8.

Reconciliation Tasmania would like to thank supporters the Hobart Airport and Libraries Tasmania.
