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 invite you to venture with us Into the Unknown.

This year Mulkadee will be a variety show format and will also have an added element of audio-visual allowing Townsville Catholic Education to showcase the incredible talent in our diocese. This filmed component of the show not only allows for an exciting new dimension to the Mulkadee format, it also allows students from regional areas or senior students the opportunity to participate in the show, if they are unable to attend the full week of Mulkadee.  

Held from Monday 18 to Friday 22 July 2022, 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 on Friday 22 July.
