AWESOME Festival


The AWESOME Festival is a multi-disciplined arts event aiming to inspire creativity and celebrate the place of young people in society.

As CEO/Creative Director Gary Chard determined local pride through international recognition as a key factor in the festivals long-term success and set about positioning the event on a number of levels to achieve this goal. In just seven years CHARD drove the early development of this West Australian event from its inception to become a world leader for young people.
