Creation Stations

Callout for expressions of interest: Artist concept

On May 20, 2018 the Tanks Arts Centre will be holding the 5th annual Cairns Children’s Festival.

The Cairns Children’s Festival is an event for children aged 12 years and under celebrated at the beautiful Cairns Botanic Gardens and Tanks Arts Centre. The festival aims to put creativity, adventure and innovation at the heart of our program whilst giving children the opportunity to showcase their skills to the Cairns community.

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

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 connected spaces, engaged families and created 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 document ( PDF, 1.54 MB ) for more information before submitting an application.

Applications due, Sunday 4 March 2018.
