Teen Gala


Event Status

Bookings for this digital event can be made now. In-person tickets may become available, subject to state government health advice and restrictions on public events.

Join us to celebrate the young people who led us through the year that was, and look towards the future to come. This gala event brings together Victoria’s brightest and most inspiring young voices to share powerful stories, speeches, and performances from 2021, and will feature the winners of the 2021 OutLoud poetry slam, the 2021 Plain English Speaking Awards and the 2021 Kill Your Darlings School Writing Prize.

At the end of another challenging year, particularly for students and educators, we’ll reflect on the extraordinary creativity and passion displayed by the teens coming of age in a world standing still. We’ll also provide a sneak peek at the Wheeler Education events we’re most looking forward to in 2022.

Let’s toast to hope, resilience and the power of teens to change the world. Bring on the new year! Hosted by Tierney Khan.
