Youth Animal Rights Conference #yARC2018

Youth Animal Rights Conference #yARC2018


The Youth Animal Rights Conference (yARC) is an exciting new opportunity for young people to engage with the issues affecting other species in our society and develop innovative and actionable plans to address them. yARC is open to anyone aged 25 and under and aims to cater for people of all backgrounds, circumstances and abilities.

If you’re the parent of a younger child, don’t worry, we’ve got you covered! yARC offers a play area providing free, all day childcare and fun, animal-focused activities for younger children. Run by qualified, professional child-carers, the play area is available to children of workshop attendees, as well as other children and their parents.

And we haven’t forgotten about food! All workshop attendees will be provided with a fully catered, vegan lunch. If you’re attending the play area only but don’t want to miss out on this delicious meal please purchase a Play area (lunch) ticket. Otherwise, you’re more than welcome to bring your own lunch.

yARC aims to be accessible to all people and we believe that money should never be a barrier to anyone accessing positive opportunities. To help make this event open to everyone, we are offering a tiered ticketing system and we ask everyone to pick the ticket which allows them to attend this event with the least stress and hardship. If our current prices are inaccessible to you at this time, please contact us and we can try and work something out!

We welcome parents and carers to accompany their children to the play area for all part of the day.

Play area (lunch) = $10

This ticket provides parents and children who are only attending the play area access to a fully catered, vegan lunch. If you are purchasing this ticket for yourself and those in your care, please also select accompanying play area tickets so that we can account for numbers.
