What is Vibe Alive?
Vibe Alive is a two day festival for young Australians of all backgrounds that promotes Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures and encourages tolerance and teamwork. Vibe Alive will be held in five locations in 2009, with the community of Port Augusta chosen as the only SA location for the festival’s 2009 program.
Vibe Alive incorporates music, sport, dance and art in a high-energy, youth-friendly setting with a carnival feel. Participants also have the opportunity to meet inspiring role models, learn about healthy living and career options and boost literacy and numeracy skills.
