The most exciting youth performing and visual arts experience in the State YOH Fest

Act-Belong-Commit YOH Fest (Youth On Health Festival) is a performing and visual arts event for West Australian school students which combines the fun of the arts with health education to create a unique, exciting and valuable experience for young people.

2020 was a tough year but the increase in participants was Amazing!

2020 was a unique year that saw us enter a new paradigm of social dynamic and practice. Never before had it been so important to give voice to those who are marginalised and isolated. Support for the mental and social health of young people has never been more paramount than right now - and these figures show it!

With all the restrictions that came into place during 2020; we came up with an alternative platform for YOH FEST in the form of an on-line digital showcase : The Act-Belong-Commit YOH ‘Screen’ Fest

YOH Fest uses the arts platform for primary and high school students to explore important health issues and to harness their creativity and enthusiasm to convey these health messages to their peers; by researching, constructing and presenting their creations around the annual health theme in the form of drama, dance, song, film or visual arts.
