Junction Arts Festival returns from Wednesday 7 - Sunday 11 September 2016 with performances and arts activities for children, young people, school groups and families.

Junction offers tailored, affordable and age-specific packages to school groups including multiple shows, events and activities.

Over the past six years, Junction has been dedicated to providing and increasing opportunities for schools, teachers, students and families to expand learning, engagement, excitement and experimentation in education by involving them in the Festival.

Through specific projects, we have involved groups of children and youth from different neighbourhoods, socio-economic backgrounds, cultures, and religions, supporting and encouraging learning, experimentation, inclusivity, pride of place, and tolerance.

We believe that participation in the arts and Junction can contribute to increased participation, engagement and interest at school, increased understanding of ideas and lateral thinking, critical awareness, communication skills and confidence, and for teachers and schools, an increased understanding of new approaches to learning and education through the arts.

At Junction, we are committed to supporting education and increasing the value of learning in our community through the arts in fun, experiential and creative ways.
