The Alice Springs Beanie Festival Committee invites entries from artists for the exhibition, 'My Journey'
Every beanie destined for the Festival is a creative journey for its maker that begins with an idea and some fibre or yarn. Their makers send them across land and sea to reach the Festival in Alice Springs each winter. Other journeys begin. Some beanies will travel the globe, change hands and heads, be lost and found, loved and laughed at.
Express a special moment or a visual reference from a story in your life, in a beanie: the trip of a lifetime, a trek through the bush, the emotional roller coaster of life events, or the friendships made along the way. This year the Festival celebrates journeys.
Send entries to:
