Brisbane City Council is committed to working with young people, the community and other levels of government to ensure all young people who live, work, play and/or study in Brisbane are engaged, empowered, included and celebrated.

Whether you're looking for free or low-cost rehearsal and meeting spaces, events curated for young people or other facilities and activities targeted at a younger audience, Council has something to offer. Find a skate park, get some help with homework at a library, check out Visible Ink in the Valley, apply for a grant for young artists and creatives or find something to do over the school holidays.
