What is the Wyndham Learning Festival?
The annual Wyndham Learning Festival is a whole of community event that provides opportunities for FREE learning activities across the City of Wyndham ran for eight days annually. The festival has activities for all ages and interests, promoting lifelong learning for all and welcoming new events, sponsors and participants to reflect this diverse and dynamic learning community.
Previous Learning Festival activities have included cooking, pyrography, craft, hip hop dance, bowling, gardening, painting, cooking, lego construction, African drumming, creative writing, knitting, Spanish, ceramics, drawing, gaming, music therapy and Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM).
Participants have also joined in the Wyndham Park Party in the Precinct and Pop Up School, talked to the animals at Rhyme Time at the Zoo, heard inspirational stories of refugee survival and learnt about local Aboriginal culture. Our stand-out signature event in 2019 was WynTalk #1 Craig Reucassell bringing his War on Waste to Wyndham – over 400 people were inspired and entertained with recycling, upcycling and sustainability ideas in this timely and enjoyable event. Another stand out event was Congress, a citizens’ assembly that provided a platform for Wyndham community citizens to have their say and be heard for the first time.
The Festival encourages the community to get out and try new things in both formal and informal learning settings. This event is jointly run through a partnership between Wyndham Community & Education Centre and Wyndham City.
