Brighton Youth Action Group (BYAG) hosted the Big Bangin Youth Night on Friday 19 May 2023 and was a great success. Brighton youth community members had turned out for a night packed with activities, talks and entertainment. High­lights included Tasmanian battle rappers Greeley and Dunn D, DJ Cheek_E, a host of local acts, and “The Talk” community forum. The night was the first major event designed by BYAG as a  celebration of young people living in the Brighton area.
