Presenters & Performers

The ACYF highlights top Australian Catholic presenters and performers supported by international speakers and artists. Announcement of the 2019 presenters and performers will be made in early 2019.

Previous presenters and performers have included many of the Australian Bishops, Fr Rob Galea, Sr Hilda Scott, Genevieve Bryant, Steve Angrisano, Emily Wilson, Matt Maher, Emmanuel Worship Band, Orange Sky, Gary & Natasha Pinto and many more.

Expo

The ACYF hosts a diverse and engaging Expo area.

The Expo aims to provide an interactive space for participants to encounter the breadth of the Catholic Church of Australia in new and unexpected ways. It will be a hive of activity which young people will return to again and again, from stalls to music and activities.

The Expo aims to offer young people a variety of the churches missions. Consequently, It lays down a challenge to creatively re-imagine how stallholders engage with participants, beyond flyers on a table. The Expo will be characterized by engagement, connection, relationship and fun.

The Expo is joined with the ACYF Food Hall presenting an unique opportunity to connect with young people.

The Expo prospectus will be released in early 2019.
