Out of the Dark Expo 2017


The QFCC held its inaugural Out of the Dark Expo at the State Library of Queensland in March 2017, showcasing some of the best ways to stay safe online.

The expo hosted various stalls by national leaders in online safety as well as multiple interactive spaces that encouraged children, young people and families to learn strategies to stay safe online. Check out the event photos in the gallery below.

Cody and Zara were members of the Out of the Dark working group that helped develop a number of products aimed at keeping kids safe online. They filmed a short video about their experience.
