Young people in Nannup engaged Fremantle artists Leah Vlatko and Emma Stokes to lead skills workshops in flower pressing and lantern making.

With support from their local community organisation, Nannup Garden Village, the three young people coordinated a series of workshops over the school holidays, as well as a workshop area at the 2019 Nannup Flower and Garden Festival.

“It brang [sic] people together. It gave fun activities to the kids. Over the festival, it gave kids somewhere fun to be. I remember being at festivals when I was younger and there wasn’t much to do, and I wanted to go home. The busy bee creative corner stopped that. Festivals should be a time for all age groups to celebrate, including young people and I think this project allowed that.”
