The Mulkadee Youth Arts Festival is the only event of its kind in Australia, offering a week-long program of artistic workshops led by professional instructors in the areas of choir, dance, drama, band, guitar and strings. 

More than 1,000 students (Years 4-12) and teachers from Catholic schools throughout the Townsville Diocese participated in workshops, culminating in a concert at the Townsville Entertainment and Convention Centre.  Children from rural and remote based schools travelled to Townsville for this week-long event. Students were exposed to professional training, over and above the school curriculum.

Mulkadee is back this year and We are delighted to announce that in 2023 the Mulkadee program will bring back the narrative driven format as it explores the thrilling tale of ℜ𝔬𝔟𝔦𝔫 ℌ𝔬𝔬𝔡. 

The Mulkadee Program will run on an alternating schedule from this point forward, with every second year being either the narrative driven or variety structure. This alternating format gives students the opportunity to extend and develop their skills while gaining an understanding of the interdisciplinary dynamic prevalent within most forms of arts based collaborations.

Held from Monday 17 to Friday 21 July 2023, Mulkadee provides a unique experience for students to learn from industry experts and culminates in a performance to a sell-out crowd of family and friends at the Townsville Entertainment and Convention Centre.
