Some important information about the day

Our Festival theme is Wellbeing Conversations

Please help us create an atmosphere for open, inclusive, safe and welcoming activities and conversation.

Help us role-model wellbeing wisdom on the day. Be kind and generous with each other, show compassion to yourself and others, be brave, think positively and practice gratitude and healthy behaviours.

You can sell items that are related to your wellbeing activity. See more information below.

Some helpful tips

Promote positivity. Instead of asking, ‘How are you?’ Try asking, ‘What is making you feel good?’

Inclusiveness. Gender-neutral language helps everyone feel included. Instead of, ‘Hey Guys’ or ‘Ladies and Gents’. Try, ‘Everyone’ or ‘Folks’.

Have fun. We know it will be a busy day. Enjoy yourself and find time for things that are good for your wellbeing.

Self-Compassion. Remind yourself to feel comfortable in the flow of the day and take some time to pamper yourself during and afterwards.

Be brave. Try something new. Share and be open, be vulnerable - we are all here together sharing a new experience.
