On Wednesday night, 19 October 2016, we launched the Be Awesome Festival in Melbourne with an info night at Schoolhouse Studios in Collingwood. Check out the video from the launch below.

There is growing evidence to suggest that today’s children are becoming less optimistic about their future, and that problems in adulthood are deeply connected to experiences in childhood.

Be Awesome believes that each child is born as a complete and unique being with vast potential, but that the current generation is experiencing an overwhelming amount of external information and influence that can limit and conceal this core identity and potential.

We have a dream to empower a generation of children to embody the awareness of their inner power, through a transformational festival program called the Be Awesome Festival.

Based on the success of our Brisbane pilot in 2015, we are currently planning the first pilot festival to take place in Melbourne in late January 2017.

If you share our vision for a generation of empowered young people we invite you to nominate as volunteer for the Be Awesome Festival Melbourne pilot!

This is an opportunity for you to be a part of the creative process for this event, to develop powerful leadership skills in a fun and dynamic team environment and to make a positive impact on the lives of a group of young people.

Please read the following information and complete the application form below. If you have any further questions please don’t hesitate to contact us at

The Be Awesome Festival Melbourne Pilot

The Be Awesome Festival is a day of full-on energy, excitement and play where children explore a network of physical challenges. Challenges are designed in a way to allow each child to experience a powerful life lesson that they can embody through physical experience for the rest of their life.

The Be Awesome Festival Melbourne pilot is a scaled version of the ultimate festival model and will feature challenges based on responses from people in Melbourne to the following question:

If you could give an 8-10 year old the gift of one powerful life lesson that would support them for the rest of their life, what would it be?

As a volunteer in the Dream Team, you are invited to participate in weekly meet ups (November 2016- January 2017) as well as participating on the day of the festival which is currently scheduled for Saturday 28 January 2017, from 8am-4pm.
