Internationally acclaimed Australian singer Isaiah Firebrace will hold a free workshop and perform a free concert on Tuesday, July 9, as part of NAIDOC Week 2019.
The Isaiah Live and Beyond Workshop is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for Mount Isa's youth to not only meet with Isaiah, but also be mentored by an inspirational, successful young Indigenous Australian.
To both be held at the Civic Centre, the Beyond workshop - which is recommended for children aged 12 and up - will run from 3.30pm to 5.30pm. Free transport will be provided to participants if required.
The workshop is all about "no shame" and breaking down barriers, and will get kids and parents thinking about achieving their dreams and going beyond challenges.
"The workshop and concert will provide a positive platform to engage with our community's youth, allowing them to feel connected, included and valued," Mayor Joyce McCulloch said.
"Isaiah was wonderful entertainment and very well received when he performed at last year's Isa Street Festival, and we are thrilled to have him back for NAIDOC Week this year.
"From winning The X Factor Australia in 2016 to representing Australia at Eurovision 2017, finishing in the top 10, all at the age of 17, Isaiah is a true inspiration for all Australians.
"All children aged 12 and up are welcome to register for his NAIDOC Week workshop and I warmly encourage them to do so.
"This will be a wonderful opportunity that is sure to inspire our local kids and give them memories that will last a lifetime."
All community members are encouraged to attend the free Isaiah Firebrace concert at the Mount Isa Civic Centre at 6.30pm on Tuesday July 9.
