Artsplash Festival

11 August 2009

Primary and intermediate school pupils from all over the region are performing in concerts, dance and drama, and exhibiting visual art this week as part of Artsplash.

Kirsten Kelly, the Council's Arts Programmes Advisor, says Artsplash is an event that children look forward to year in, year out. "It's been running for so long now that many of the parents and guardians in the audience will remember being there themselves 20 years ago," she says.

The festival is on until Wednesday 19 August at the Michael Fowler Centre and the Opera House. "Make sure to pop into the Michael Fowler Centre and check out the artworks our young people have created," says Kirsten.
