After many hours of editing and love its finally here! Click on the video above or the link below to check out our short video from the inaugural Be Awesome Festival Melbourne pilot from earlier this year.

We let our parents and participants have a sneak peak of the video before we made it public and here's what they had to say:

"It is lovely! A great smile bringer on a Friday afternoon!"

"It was a great video, but something is missing.....'Piggy back dabbing'... Haha! Apart from that it was AWESOME!!!!" 

"What an awesome video, we enjoyed it very much! Well done to you and your team :o)"

A huge thank you has to go to Daniel Gallagher (http://www.danielgallagher.com.au) who captured the great footage on the day and to the amazing Jayde Harding (http://www.jaydeharding.com) who did all of the hard work editing and producing the final version. You guys are awesome!

Please share this video far and wide and help spread the Be Awesome message to everyone who needs to hear it!

On Thursday night 8th of June, we held a very special thank you event to honour the people who made the Be Awesome Festival Melbourne pilot possible.
As we prepare to announce our next event soon, we wanted to share the request for help that we ended our thank you event with.

Can you help with?

- A research partnership: we are looking to partner with a university that can work with us to design an evidence and data measurement model
- Business mentoring: Be Awesome founder Christian Duell, is seeking a highly experienced mentor to support him in growing Be Awesome as an organisation and ensuring it's long-term sustainability

If you can help with either of these requests or would like to be involved in the next chapter of Be Awesome, please send us an email to info@beawesome.org.au

A special thank you to Schoolhouse Studios, Pozible and Young Henrys for your generous support of our event.

An awesome opportunity for girls in Years 7 to 12 in Australian secondary schools to immerse in skill-building leadership workshops, hear incredible stories from some wildly inspiring female mentors, and experience first-hand the 21st century skillsets that will define the future workplaces they will inhabit!

The girledworld Leadership Summit is the 2017 flagship event of female-founded startup GIRLEDWORLD and is happening on the 24-25 June at the University of Melbourne. More info below:

We had a great time last Monday night running our ‘Social Change With Purpose’ workshop with supporters of our recent BAF crowdfunding campaign. It’s amazing to see the possibilities for WHAT we can put our energy towards when we know our WHY.

Next up on the Be Awesome calendar is our COMMUNITY CELEBRATION on Thursday night, 8th of June at Schoolhouse Studios in Collingwood. Join us to raise a glass to the people who made our inaugural BAF Melbourne event happen, to see the premiere of the short doco from the event and to hear an exciting announcement about the next Be Awesome Festival partnership!

Thanks to Schoolhouse Studios and Kooks wine for supporting this event. To connect with an amazing community of passion people and to learn more about the Be Awesome Festival, join us on the 8th of June. RSVP here:

What is FIERCE COMPASSION?

https://bafpurposeworkshop.eventbrite.com.au

Fierce compassion is the feeling we experience when we encounter something that we believe is not right in the world that should be. It is a deep-ceded frustration that comes from a place of genuine compassion and care; that things ought to be changed.

For Be Awesome, we feel fierce compassion when we see the individuality and creativity of young people being stifled in their school environment.

Sometimes, as Parker Palmer suggests, our purpose whispers to us, at other times it can be fierce! Learning to pay attention to our fierce compassion when it arises and to cultivate it and direct it toward a meaningful endeavour is one powerful way to live closer to our purpose.

Join us on Monday night (online or in-person) as we explore tools for identifying what ignites fierce compassion in each of us and how we can direct this energy to endeavours that make a difference.

Be Awesome is a non-profit organisation. This workshop is being facilitated voluntarily and all proceeds will go toward building the next Be Awesome Festival in Melbourne.

“Before you tell your life what you intend to do with it, listen for what it intends to do with you. Before you tell your life what truths and values you have decided to live up to, let your life tell you what truths you embody, what values you represent.” - Parker Palmer

There is a myth that each of us have a singular, elusive “purpose” that we must somehow find, then set and forget. Ee don’t need to “find” our purpose, because it was never lost. It has existed since we were little kids and we are already living our purpose today in some shape or form. Our job is to patiently and quietly LISTEN to our life for the clues that lead us to living more of our purpose and to stripping away those things that are not aligned with our purpose.

Join Be Awesome founder Christian Duell next Monday night for this 2.5 hour workshop, where you will explore tools for listening and uncovering more of what ignites your purpose in life.

Limited online and in-person places available here: https://bafpurposeworkshop.eventbrite.com.au/
