Gold Coasters aged 18-25 to explore ideas and connect at free Exchange Festival

Gold Coasters aged 18 to 25 will have a chance to meet mentors, chat about their careers, take part in cool workshops and much more at a free event in Southport next week.

Exchange will take over Nerang Street in Southport on September 14, with an array of free workshops, panels, presentations, exhibitions and entertainment on offer for young locals.

The event is a platform for young people to explore ideas – from theoretical concepts to practical everyday ideas – as well as connect with local interest clubs and groups.


Some of the workshops on offer cover topics such as career conversations, networking skills, song writing, the power of branding, hip hop and robotics, just to name a few.

Nerang Street will also be a hub of activity throughout the afternoon with live music, a street expo, food trucks and market stalls.
