The tour was tailored to meet the needs of each of these communities and was put together through a patchwork of relationships with local presenters/venues, schools, community groups, and councils.
I had an excellent, memory-making, wonderful, awesome time. Thanks!

We have been unable to keep up with the demand and community members wanting to see more workshops. (And) received overwhelming positive feedback from the community.
ATYP has been closely following the community engagement and workshop model used by Flipside to deliver programs in regional Queensland and forge ongoing relationships with regional towns and centres. This program reflects best practice nationally and is something that many leading professional companies are scrambling to replicate.
