There has been a great response to Woden Alive and the variety of events on display is fantastic given this is only Woden Alive’s first year. The majority of the events have been inspired by the Woden Alive concept.

If you are living around the Woden Valley and the wider Canberra region – this is a great chance to come ‘south of the lake’ and experience life in the Woden Valley.

Community events during Woden Alive include the Canberra Collage interschool Festival, an Interfaith seminar, a variety of health and wellbeing workshops, film showings, Warehouse Circus yearly spectacular, a songwriting competition, photographic displays, and even a venetian mask making workshop where participants will make and design masks that will be displayed at the Woden Valley Festival on Saturday November 5!
