Lines In The Sand Transforms Stradbroke Island

LinesFamilies will be diving into North Stradbroke Island this June to experience a four-day festival celebrating art, the environment and the island’s community.

Focusing on making art from nature and new media, the Lines in the Sand festival coincides with school holidays, running from June 22-25, 2013.

Selected artists have been invited to create an outdoor installation on Point Lookout, headland and beaches featuring the theme Nature First.

Lines in the Sand Co-Director, Jo Kaspari, said this year’s festival theme reflects the island’s rich aboriginal culture and natural beauty.

“Lines in the Sand will tap into the island’s ancient cultural roots and contemporary art practice,” said Ms Kaspari.

The outdoor works of art will remain in place for two weeks over school holidays or until nature decides otherwise.

Seminars and workshops at the third annual festival include weaving, printmaking, kid’s land art, a big marquee environment forum and a Goompi Trail cultural tour.

The QPAC and Queensland Theatre Company production, Stradbroke Dreamtime Performance, will be showcased four times throughout the festival.

Stradbroke Island’s grassroots community arts festival takes place during the island’s peak whale watching season.

Situated in Moreton Bay, Stradbroke Island is just a 50-minute ferry ride from Cleveland.
