YOUNG people looking for something to do on Friday night can help others their age who are doing it tough.
Whether it's hip hop, graphic art, urban dance or poetry you're into, YouthSpace will have something for everyone at the Mount Druitt Hub.
Aimed at ages 12 to 24, the event will encourage youth to discover ways to use their creativity and engage their communities in conversations for change.
Proceeds from the event will go to Chris Riley's Youth Off the Streets in the fight against youth homelessness, addiction and substance abuse.
Mount Druitt resident Melisa Swinney organised YouthSpace after recently setting up her own event company, Bethesda Events.
Her aim is to help youth to express themselves, connect and work with others to bring change in their communities.
"I want to give back to the community and am passionate about working with young people," Ms Swinney said.
"There are a lot of disadvantaged young people in western Sydney, especially in Mount Druitt, who need to feel empowered to use their creative talents.
"It's something that I enjoy doing and feel good about."
Workshops about the music industry, graphic art, urban dance and poetry are from 5pm to 7pm.
The main program runs from 7pm until midnight, with performances from slam poet Joel McKerrow, hip hop artists Nutkaze and Billy Kid, DJs and a poetry slam competition.
The workshops plus party pass costs $24.95, which gives youth access to workshops and the main program.
The performance-only ticket from 7pm is $18. Tickets are available at the door but space is limited.
