Creation Stations

Callout for expressions of interest: Artist concept

On Sunday May 19, 2019 the Tanks Arts Centre and Cairns Botanic Gardens will come alive with activities as part of the 6th annual Cairns Children’s Festival.

The Cairns Children’s Festival is an event for children aged 12 years and in 2019 will be celebrated across the city. The festival aims to put creativity, adventure and innovation at the heart of our program, giving children the opportunity to showcase their skills, engage in creative play, use their imaginations and have LOADS of fun!

The festival works with local and national artists and performers to create a range of free and ticketed events spread across the festival.

The 2017 event introduced Creation Stations; outdoor, site specific, artist designed installations that encouraged children to explore, play, discover and create with low or no input from facilitators. The ‘stations’ located across the site connect spaces, engage families and create a sense of magic.

Artists can apply for a fee of up to $2000 to complete the installation. Budgets must be submitted with each application.

Please download the artist brief   ( PDF, 2.17 MB ) for more information before submitting an application.

Applications due, Sunday 3 March 2019.
