🥁 We are soooo excited to announce Out West 2021. We’ll be heading out to our three local areas: Wyndham, St Albans and Footscray for three all-day sessions led by your fave Lead and Support Artists. They'll each be led by different artists so you can come to all three!

​Covid disrupted our flow in 2020 and parts of 2021. So, we wanted to celebrate being back in the room together in the way WEYA does best, with games, food, music, chats and a screening of the 2020 CYT Film – we can’t wait to see you again! 

​🔗 Bookings are free but due to capacity limits you’ll need to book, so head over to the link in our bio for more info and tickets!
