On the back of the highly successful 2010 inaugural version, the Junction Arts Festival (JAF) in Launceston is set to be held again this year and has been upgraded to last for five days.
Held from August 24 to 28, it is a multi-arts event that comes with a few twists that are bound to delight visitors. Featuring playful and interactive contemporary live performance, theatre, visual and media arts, music, dance and literature, JAF seeks to present works that invite audience participation and interaction in city settings.
Various exhibitions, events and site-specific public installations will be produced and shown by a combination of local, national and international artists at all different stages of their careers.
Tickets can be purchased online or in person at the Launceston Travel Information Centre in the Cornwell Square Transit Centre or at the Junction Arts Festival Box Office in Civic Square.
The festival is a wonderful opportunity for talented locals to become involved in something unique, as well as a chance for both Tasmanians and visitors to enjoy a different type of cultural experience.
Scattered across the beautiful city of Launceston, what better way to combine sight-seeing and outdoor relaxation with the fun and quirky addition of interactive street art?
