Resilience Festival 2018

Firstly thank you for taking the time to look at this page.

We are a group of friends wanting to organize a registered charity festival in October 2018 in the regional town of Lithgow two hours west of Sydney in NSW.

Why Lithgow?

In the month of February we lost two great young men to suicide four days apart and at this time in the region there are minimal services available for people and quite frankly we believe that it's not good enough.

What's our vision?

What we invision is a festival that can provide information for mental illness and suicide prevention, along with preventative maintenance for mental health involving all local clubs and hobbies showing what is available in the local area and also have live music showcasing Australian talent of many genres.

We want to give back to our community as well as bring it closer together through this time and help push services to become available in the area.
The idea of this page is just to cover costs, any additional money raised will all be donated to a charity which will be confirmed closer to the date.

The price breakdown is as follows
