Youth Engagement for One Last Apocalypse

Youth Engagement at The Edge
The Edge worked with Albert Park Flexi school to tailor an ongoing engagement. It began at the Flexi school with a game and then moved onsite to The Edge with a range of inter-generational inductions. The group then used these skills to help make the physical design of cardboard kaiju as well as the sound design. The group changed each week with two young people being consistent throughout the program. Some of these programs were then deployed with the Deception Bay Flexischool.
