Cahoots Connect- Meet our partners!
If you haven’t heard about Cahoots Connect yet – then read our blog post: Cahoots Connect – promoting inclusion within City of Vincent
Through this project we are very excited to be working with the following City of Vincent businesses to deliver Cahoots Connect to our members.
YMCA HQ – Youth Services
Located in Leederville, YMCA HQ offers a variety of support services to WA youth aged 15-25 years. These include counselling, emergency accommodation, mentoring and advocacy. On top of that this awesome business provide fun creative opportunities and live music events for young people to attend. Through Cahoots Connect, YMCA HQ hope to encourage more young people with disability to access and feel incldued within their services and event.
They have come up with two amazing Cahoots Connect sessions that you cannot miss. In the first, participants will get to have a go planning a live music gig. As a group, participants will get to decide on the singers/band, test the lights, do a sound check, learn how the ticketing system works and have a go serving at the cafe and more. Session 2 provides participants the opportunity to plan and participate in their very own art exhibition! As a group we’ll decide on a theme and the location for the exhibition and then produce a piece of art to go on display.
Both sessions will provide plenty of opportunity to make new friends and interact with others during this session and over lunch (provided).
