    in ocus: stylin up

    Now in its tenth year, Stylin UPis Australias largest Aboriginaland Torres Strait Islander hip-hop

    and cultural festival, proudlyowned by the Aboriginal andTorres Strait Islander Communityof Inala through the Stylin UPCommunity Crew in partnership

    with Brisbane City Council.

    Dr Chelsea Bond, who has beenattending and involved in the eventsince its inception, is amazed with

    its growth. Not only has it grown,it has matched the changing face ofour community, she explains.

    The award winning program, whichhas been lauded as a successfulcollaboration between thegovernment and the community, ismore than just a festival presentingtop quality acts. Behind the scenesa series of workshops engage

    local children and young people

    throughout the year and seekto give them the condence toperform in front of thousands.These workshops instill the festivalsethos ofPride in Self, Pride inCommunity, Pride in Culture.

    The workshops culminate withyoung people performing as partof Stylin UP at the end of May.

    Young people have grown throughthis process. Ive seen youngparticipants in workshops whoare now working as arts workers,helping the next generation comethrough, which is really exciting tosee that theyve travelled with theprogram over a number of years,Dr Bond explains.

    Community elder Kelvin Lui haswatched the program develop over

    the last decade and is proud ofthe festivals impact on the youngpeople in the South-WesternSuburbs. Ive seen positive thingshappen from Stylin UP for youngpeople, which has always beena priority for the elders in thecommunity, he emphasises.We like to see our young peopledoing positive things, keeping outof trouble its the changing, new

    face of Inala.

    Its a sentiment echoed byDr Bond, who explains thesuccessful collaboration betweenCouncil and the community. Thisis one of the rst events that Iveseen thats actually engaged withour community, with our strengths,and thats really unique. Stylin UPover the last ten years has askedthe community what is good about

    your community that we can usefor this major festival, and thatto me changes the psyche of acommunity.

    The festival now attracts over15,000 people annually from allover Australia, and is recognisedas the largest Aboriginal andTorres Straight Islander youthhip-hop event in Australia. And

    while its roots will always centreon Aboriginal and Torres StraitIslander culture, both Kelvin andChelsea agree that its an event forthe entire community. Inala todayis a multicultural community, saysKelvin, so its for young peopleright across the board.

    Stylin UP 2010 takes place atCJ Greenelds Sports Complex,Inala, on Saturday May 29.
