FORGET Mother’s Day and Father’s Day, next Saturday is all about the kids with a huge Youth Week event in the Jull Street Mall.

The Artbeat Youth Fest is now in its third year and promises a day jam-packed with live music, community street art, food trucks, inflatable photo booth and games for Armadale’s young people to enjoy.

Also among the activities is a robotics demonstration from the Armadale Robotics Club, a performance from the Harrisdale Senior High School choir and a showcase of art created by Armadale Senior High School students.

Armadale SHS creative industries head of learning Cheryl Rose said the specialist visual art students had created artwork inspired by the Artbeat theme.

“The students are very excited about being involved especially as their work will be displayed in the local community,” she said.

Armadale mayor Henry Zelones said the City had worked closely with local schools and organisations such as headspace Armadale, Save the Children, Art Versus Depression and YMCA WA to put together what they hoped would be a fun and memorable day for local young people.

Artbeat Youth Fest is at the Jull Street Mall from 11am to 3pm on April 14.
