Junction Arts Festival Returns 10-14 September

Junction Arts Festival returns to energise Launceston, Tasmania from Wednesday 10 - Sunday 14 September, 2014 with five days of unexpected art adventures weaving through the city. From a one minute birthday party, to bands playing in household backyards, to 7 metre-tall inflatable bunnies and bicycle-powered karaoke machines, Junction Arts Festival offers intimate one-on-one encounters, high energy spectacles and an all manner of things in-between.

Providing a completely unique event in Tasmania, Junction Arts Festival proves that art doesn't begin and end at theatres, museums and galleries. Featuring a bold program of engaging performances by local Tasmanian, national and international artists and musicians, Junction Arts Festival aims to highlight, celebrate and redefine the way people see the city of Launceston, creating site-specific works for seldom used spaces and interactive works, in which anyone can get involved and help create the art.

"Junction Arts Festival works closely with artists year-round to commission and produce new live art and performance that create unique experiences and mini adventures for audiences," said Junction Arts Festival Director Natalie De Vito. "We seek out and present work in nooks and crannies and unusual places - laneways, parking lots, rooftops, forgotten attics, biker clubs, and more - alongside those we walk by daily but never notice. Our artists highlight Launceston's architecture, history, character and spectacular vistas and turn the city into the best playground in Tasmania."

Audiences at Junction Arts Festival will be surprised, touched, moved and inspired by meaningful works by established artists from London to Toronto, Iran to Australia, as well as the first major presentation by emerging artists from Launceston and Tasmania.

Now in its fourth year, Junction Arts Festival is proud to have established itself as one of the premier annual events in Tasmania's thriving festival calendar and flourishing arts scene. Presenting works in all stages of creation by artists in all stages of their career, Junction Arts Festival aims to present contemporary art in a welcoming environment to all communities that is accessible to all ages.
