TINKERING TANK @ CAIRNS CHILDREN’S FESTIVAL 2015
WORKSHOPS: 7 APRIL – 7 MAY
CAIRNS CHILDREN’S FESTIVAL 2015: Sunday 10th MAY
MAZE VISITS: 11 – 29 MAY
For the 2015 CAIRNS CHILDREN’S FESTIVAL Tank 4 will become a recycling solar system where visitors travel through a cardboard maze of space, planets and rockets to a reimagined alien world.
The maze will be a sustainable dream, constructed from donated, found and repurposed materials – a cacophony of interspatial ideas facilitated by artist-in-residence Ruby Boussard.
Workshops to help build the giant rocket and maze are being run in March and over the school holidays. Participants will be instrumental in the final outcome at CAIRNS CHILDREN’S FESTIVAL 2015 – Sunday 10th May.
