Youth Speak Out: Travelling Exhibition 

The next generation’s voice on reconciliation

Youth Speak Out is an annual education initiative run by Reconciliation Tasmania since 2018 celebrating the next generation’s views on Aboriginal affairs

For the first time, Youth Speak Out entries are touring across Lutruwita/Tasmania! This inaugural exhibition showcases student artwork from students in years 5 to 12 including multimedia, speeches, letters, poems, or whole class projects expressing students’ views about reconciliation.

In partnership with Libraries Tasmania the exhibition will tour various libraries around Lutruwita/Tasmania. The exhibition starts with a three-month stint at the Allport Library and Museum of Fine Arts, 91 Murray Street, Hobart

National Reconciliation Week (NRW) 2023: Be a Voice for Generations

Every year, Youth Speak Out entrants respond to the NRW theme.

This year’s theme encourages all Australians to be a voice for reconciliation in tangible ways in our everyday lives – where we live, work and socialise.
