Great stories inspire change.

Wakakirri is a National Story-Dance Festival where schools aim to do just that! Established in 1992, Wakakirri is Australia’s largest performing arts event for schools, involving over 20,000 students annually.

Each year hundreds of schools across Australia create Story-Dances for Wakakirri that reflect their students’ thoughts, ideas and aspirations. These stories are performed in professional theatres in front of the official ‘Wakakirri Panel’ who are searching for ‘Story of the Year’. Every year over 1 million people watch Wakakirri performances.

Performing in Wakakirri is an unforgettable experience. Students spend show day rehearsing and meeting other students and that same night walk the red carpet with the Wakakirri Panel and perform on the big stage.
