Digi Van – Unleashing Youth Voices on the Central Coast

The Skill Engineer Ltd is proud to announce the upcoming launch of Digi Van, an innovative initiative aimed at empowering young people to create digital content that reflects their voices and community narratives. The official launch event will take place on the 26th of July at The Skillion in Terrigal, starting at 1:00 PM.

The Digi Van project, funded by the NSW Government Regional Youth Investment Program, will guide participants towards creative digital pathways and future employment opportunities.

The Digi Van will visit various locations such as youth centers, community centers, and high schools. Its aim is to connect directly with the youth, engaging them in the world of multimedia.

As these young creators share their unique perspectives and stories, their podcasts and multimedia productions will be aired through The Skill Engineer Ltd.’s expansive platforms, reaching a wide audience and showcasing the diverse voices and talents of Central Coast youth.

Maggie MacFie, Chief Executive Officer of Skill Engineer Ltd., emphasized the pivotal role played by multimedia in shaping youth’s self-perception and their engagement within the broader community.

“It allows them to interpret the world, its values, and ideas, fostering a greater sense of understanding and active participation. Media is an essential component of modern culture, entertainment, and societal transformation.”

The Digi Van, ahead of its official launch, made a special appearance at the 2023 Central Coast Community NAIDOC Celebrations. Teens utilised the van and worked with The Skill Engineer Ltd.’s MobPod team to capture the wisdom and stories of elders for the ‘For Our Elders’ initiative.

In close collaboration with the community, the Digi Van endeavors to not only showcase exceptional local talent but also foster resilience, champion meaningful change, and, above all, serve as a dynamic and vibrant outlet for joy and creativity.
