The festival has been running annually since 2011 with the first major event of each festival being the KickstART Festival Market which takes place on Festival Launch Day.

Our Involvement

Erin Madeley Consulting has been working with Propel Youth Arts as part of the Festival Market since 2018 with Erin giving a talk to market participants about what to expect being involved in an event such as this. In 2019 we came on board in the capacity of Market Coordinators for the KickstART Festival Market Day.

Our involvement covers stallholder recruitment, coordination, running a stallholder workshop and more.

We are excited to be working with such a great organisation to bring this opportunities to youth in the arts every year - for FREE! That's right, it is FREE for stallholders to be involved with this great event.

The 2021 Festival

The Festival took place this year from April 9th - 16th with the KickstART Festival Market running from 10am - 4pm on April 10th in Forrest Place in the Perth CBD.
