Music changes people, people change the world is more than a motto, it is the result and proven outcome of this unique and powerful high school education program which combines live music, story telling and social media to raise awareness and motivate students to take positive action across a range of social, emotional and environmental areas.
"I encourage other schools and organisations to include the “Awareness Shows” in your extracurricular activities. They are able to produce amazing connections with students and I recommend them very highly to any school in search of a wonderful program that links perfectly with the national student social and emotional wellbeing, positive behaviour learning and a range of PDHPE curricular as well as environmental learning outcomes."

"I have been involved with many youth programs aimed at engaging young people, trying to widen their thinking and understanding, as well as opening channels of communication. The Awareness Shows are one of the best programs, I have ever experienced. The shows, and the learning from them will stay with people young and old for a very long time, if you work in a youth organisation you need to connect with Awareness Shows"

Angela Hughes YDC for Port Macquarie-Hastings Council

“ Such a beautiful thing you guys are doing, changing children's lives for the better, speaking from a mothers point of view whose child was bullied to the point of severe depression and trying to cut himself with scissors because he was so sad and scared, I am so glad there are people out there who want to give their time to helping these children, and letting them know there is people who understand and want to help in a way they connect with at where they are at which is, music, story and social media. A program like this will really help children who are in pain open up more to their parents about the issues they are facing!

Awareness Shows started in 2010 by Rich Latimer a professional musician who spent 3 years working in a high school as a student social and emotional wellbeing support worker. With a life filled with many extreme personal experiences around issues facing our youth today and after a catastrophic life event involving a teenage sibling Rich realised that long term change in social attitudes within a school required powerful youth centred and emotionally engaging educational experiences, along with a whole school approach. Awareness Shows has gone on to be that approach and has reached, changed and saved many tens of thousands of young lives as a result and is one of the most important real educational performances available today.
