This Podcast will be professionally edited, with all episodes listed on a web host page by City of Launceston's Youth Advisory Group as part of their Anti-Bullying Campaign. This online podcast campaign will be released to schools as a resource to prevent acts of bullying and aid understanding amongst student peers.

Event Description: With Tamar Valley Peace Festivals Theme 'Respect' in mind, we are looking for individuals aged between 12-25 to share their story on bullying as part of City of Launceston Youth Advisory Group's Anti- Bullying Campaign. 

Stories can range from individuals who may have not recognised the impacts of their behaviour and changed their ways, to what it means to not be a bystander, as well as stories from individuals who have overcome bullying. These stories will be workshopped and recorded as their own anonymous podcast episode. 

The podcast episodes will form the basis for Launceston Youth Advisory Group's Anti- Bullying Campaign and be listed on a web host page for other young people to access.
