My youngest son has always struggled “fitting in” - we have searched and tried many extra curricular activities from football to basketball to swimming. My sons first day drumming let to the discovery of circus club , I have never seen him so comfortable and happy!
After 1 short lesson Liam met wonderful people and walked proudly on stilts in the Djerriwarrh parade !
Thankyou Dream Big facilitating a space of free expression , a place for my Liam to fit in ♥️❤️♥️

👏 👏 👏Great community event and entertaining day though it was disappointing to hear that it may be that last time the Platypus Festival would be held due to no future funding. It was evident from the large crowd and responses from those there that the Platypus Festival is enjoyed and valued by the community. I hope the Melton Council, the local member etc takes steps to ensure it's continuation as festivals like these are empowering for a community, giving people the opportunity to volunteer, share their skills, knowledge and talents, engage and unite cultures.
Attended the Dream Big on Saturday and considering the fickle freezing weather there was a good crowd and had a great day. Well done to the organisers, think you do the inclusive community event really well. A lot of talent is evident up there in Melton, great artworks, food, music, rappers, stilt walkers and drummers, Great input by the young people. Fun day . ☺️
well done shane top effort
