REMADE is an event that offers a platform that challenges artists, designers and community to create themed ‘wearable art’ before enthusiastic audiences. This annual event is inclusive to all skill levels, encourages up cycling and provides engagement, community strength, capacity building and connectedness, culminating in a contemporary showcase and exhibition at the Queen Victoria Museum & Art Gallery.
Kunst Pod is a residency surrounded by the natural environment on the East Coast of Tasmania aimed at fostering the creative wellbeing of artists by providing them with a free space, and time-out, to develop new work, research and collaborate; and energise them to return to their respective communities refreshed and inspired.
The STREETS ALIVEFestival/ Public Arts Trail has been held seven times since 1999 and continues to grow from strength to strength. It is not only for young people, but also actively engages them in every aspect of program development.
The organising committee works hard on each event to ensure they have connected with the youth community and continue to offer opportunities for participants to develop and refine their skills across the arts spectrum whilst being mindful of their need to be part of the greater global community.
We have presented a variety of programs highlighting issues of significance to young people and have to date directly involved over 10,000 youth. We aim to involve practicing local artists in our diverse program as well as bring in artists from the mainland and overseas if appropriate, including engaging artists who were previously involved in SA festivals as young participants.
