Craft Cubed Festival 2010

Craft Victoria
Melbourne Australia

Event Proposals
Theme: Childhood

Established in 2009, the Craft Cubed festival aims to be highly participatory and to create a space for practitioners and the public to engage with contemporary issues. The 2010 festival dates are 5 August to 4 September and the theme is Childhood.

Artists have long engaged with issues associated with childhood, and it is a particularly relevant query today as to what constitutes childhood – how do the different forms and phases of childhood affect the arts, and what is the importance of play?

Childhood is a concept that lies at the foundation of all societies, and it is where the rules of what is right and wrong are developed. It is also the origin of imagination, and in linking imagination and morality, ‘Childhood’ as a theme is intended to create a powerful arts event that explores many of the constructs associated with contemporary craft and design.

Expressions of Interest are now being sought for festival satellite events (eg studio workshops, exhibitions, student projects etc) that engage with the theme.
