Past Festivals

Dating back to 2003, this fortnightly festival has a new theme each year, where all sorts of related art and cultural activities are created by local children and adults alike. Exhibitions, competitions, workshops and events all culminate in a fortnight of fun for everyone!

Journeys

We travelled far and wide with our journeys of discovery, personal journeys, trails, maps, signposts and suitcases! 

We found out that heroes come in all shapes and sizes, so we made the most of super heroes, dressing up as heroes, thanking our local heroes, getting creative with heroic shields.........

Wild II

Having been 'locked down' the previous year, we had another go at this WILD theme!  Somehow, the freedom to be out and about made us all the more determined to embrace this great theme.

For the first time, we extended our fortnight and went online. Socially distanced studios were some of the great ideas that allowed everyone to display their wonderful works of art.

In the town where Darwin was born, Origins was a wonderful theme to get creative with.

'Home is where the heart is' and our community really showed us how much home meant to them this year, from bedrooms to sheds!
