If you have children and are living in Sydney or are planning to visit Sydney between September 27 and October 9, you should go to the Sydney Children’s Festival held at Carriage works in Redfern. There is going to be plenty of FREE activities for the kids to enjoy!
From Festival: In 2008, CarriageWorks launched the first everSydney Children’s Festival and it was a huge success! Over 10,000 people came and enjoyed our inaugural Festival. In 2009 Sydney Children’s Festival returned with a range of programs across various art forms. More than 17,000 people visited the festival over 2 weeks.
2010 is taking Sydney Children’s Festival one step further. The program is extended to take in a range of other arts venues and community centres across Sydney and Greater Sydney.
It is a Festival that emphasizes participation, focusing on the Child as the Artist. The program is a mixture of performance, workshops, exhibitions, tangible experiences and special events lead by experienced professional practitioners, artists and companies. It is designed for all kids up to the age of 12 to get stuck into the creative play with their families. Everyone can take part in theatre, circus, visual arts, storytelling, music, film, creative sustainability and dance.
Over 75% of the entire program is FREE, all tickets are classed as low cost.
The focus at Sydney Children’s Festivalis on encouraging community participation, and inspiring creativity and imagination in children (and the child in all of us!). The Festival nurtures a love for the arts amongst Australia’s youngest generation of artists, patrons and cultural contributors. Our aim is to grow the Sydney Children’s Festivalto become an iconic event, a permanent fixture on every Sydney family’s social calendar, and it will be an event that Sydney kids love, and look forward to all year around. Everyone can be artist and audience at Sydney Children’s Festival. It’s big, it’s exciting, it’s a festival like you have never experienced!
