SPECIAL GUEST: Tom Ballard, a stand-up comedian, writer, actor and broadcaster, will entertain at next month’s Western Victorian Careers Expo.

A Western Victorian Careers Expo next month will highlight opportunities for education and employment in the performing and creative arts industries.
The ever-expanding expo, at Longerenong on June 25, will include a dedicated ‘Arts Pavilion’ this year.
Expo chairman Andrew Vague said student demand for information about education and career pathways in performing and creative art industries had prompted the development.
“We will be dedicating a pavilion at the Wimmera Events Centre site to exhibitors offering information about pathways into a career in performing and creative arts,” he said.
The Arts Pavilion also includes an auditorium, which will host special guest Tom Ballard, a stand-up comedian, writer, actor and broadcaster, along with local presenters and Melbourne band Loose Moose.
Drawing from a wide range of rock, funk, soul and dance influences, Loose Moose will finish off the event with a live performance, followed by a seminar and question and answer session about the band’s pathway into the music industry.
Emergency-service careers

Although next month’s expo is focusing heavily on performing and creative arts, organisers have confirmed an emergency-services careers hub will again be a major attraction and had become a permanent fixture of the event.
Mr Vague said the introduction of the hub at last year’s expo was extremely successful and feedback from both students and exhibitors suggested there was a strong interest in emergency-service careers.
“The Emergency Services hub received rave reviews after the 2018 expo, with students telling us that it was great to be able to engage with these exhibitors all under the one roof,” he said.
Mr Vague said the size of the building, which housed the Emergency Services hub, also allowed exhibitors to bring more vehicles.
“This creates a lot more interest among students as they can get hands on and interact with the exhibitor displays,” he said.
The Western Victorian Careers Expo is from 9.30am to 2pm.
