School Holidays

Council is committed to providing children and families in Liverpool with things to see and do that promote creativity, learning and play.

Many of our school holiday activities allow children and teenagers to get creative through arts and crafts, music, dance, coding, story writing and more. Other activities, such as basketball and skateboarding workshops, promote the importance of keeping young people healthy and active.

There'll be a number of events and workshops, many of which are free, held at Casula Powerhouse Arts Centre, all Liverpool City Library branches and our great outdoor spaces.

10 – 14 July
Casula Powerhouse Arts Centre & Liverpool City Library branches

The 2019 Way Out West (WOW) Festival for Young People is a five-day event held in one of Australia’s most unique cultural facilities, the Casula Powerhouse Arts Centre, with a number of satellite events held at all six Liverpool City Library branches.

The Way Out West Festival is Sydney’s premier interactive festival celebrating young people’s curiosity and imagination, in partnership with some of Australia’s leading artists - creating work with, by and for young people. The festival is a place where you can scream, shout, talk, laugh or quietly daydream. Come along and join us.

Dive into a packed program of theatre, interactive installations, dance, music, literature, food, yoga, workshops and FREE family events guaranteed to inspire joy, creativity and curiosity.

NAIDOC Week celebrations are held across Australia each July to celebrate the history, culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.

Council is proud to support NAIDOC week with two free community events to be held on Tuesday 9 and Wednesday 10 July.

As a city that reflects harmony and peace, NAIDOC week is a great opportunity for all members of our community to come together and participate in a range of activities to show our support for the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community.

Fun, FREE outdoor activities that will get children and teens up and moving during the school holidays.
