The Walking Project
Where have we come from? Where are going? And what stories have been written into the ground underneath our feet. The Walking Project is a self-guided walking tour accompanied by audio over headphones.

Special group price during school hours of $5.00 per student with one adult per ten students free.

Adventures in Sightlessness
Adventures in Sightlessness is a series of site-specific walking adventures that invite you to explore Launceston's streets, alleys, malls and squares by feeling and listening your way through the environment. Experience the city in a totally sensory way while our watchful guides look out for you.

Special group price during school hours of $5.00 per student with one adult per ten students free. Check out all the details here

Art 'n' About
ARTSKOOL, Melanie Fidler and Paul Eggins, convert a van into Launceston's first mobile art gallery. Art 'n' About will bring a unique gallery experience to the streets of Launceston so keep your eyes open for this show on wheels. Art 'n' About will also offer a series of participatory workshops during the Festival.

Shadow Booth
Dress up in costumes and props and strike a pose behind a rear projection screen with your friends. A director assists you with your image composition and then photographs your silhouette with your own phone or camera, capturing a memorable portrait to keep.

The Stance
Do you have a story about protest? A collective of artists will be researching protest in Tasmania for The Stance to be presented at Junction Arts Festival 2016. The Stance team will be in residency at QVMAG during the Festival and would love to yarn to locals about protest.

Amplified+ Showcase features a curated selection of livewire performances by Tasmanian musicians ready to hit The Junc Room stage. Amplified+ offers live performance opportunities for Tasmanian artists to access new festival audiences and connect with visiting music industry professionals.

Photo Mob HQ
Professional photographers Chris Crerar and Mel de Ruyter have been mentoring a mob of local photographic enthusiasts in the lead-up to the Festival. Catch the Photo Mob racing around Launceston capturing Festival moments then drop in to the Photo Mob HQ and Gallery at 68A Brisbane Street to enjoy the exhibition of Festival events captured by The Photo Mob.

RIDE is a site-specific, one-on-one performance that takes place on the back of a motorcycle. A rider takes an audience member on an individual journey out of Launceston and into the Tasmanian bush. A soundtrack plays inside your motorcycle helmet that weaves snippets of audio together with sights and sounds from the landscape as you ride through it.

Visit RIDE HQ to trace the journeys and experiences of the riders, while standing on your own two feet. Check out all the details here
