Alice Desert Festival Wearable Art Awards tickets selling fast!

Tickets to this year’s Wearable Art Awards are on sale and selling quickly. The weekend of 25th and 26th August promises to be full of spectacular and inspiring works of art from both local and interstate artists and designers.

At the Saturday matinee audiences will select the People’s Choice Award winner and watch as the judges decide the winners of our two mentorship prizes this year! One lucky young designer will receive a cash prize donated by Sustainable Couture, as well as the opportunity to work with the group to learn about development of techniques and ideas. One other designer will head to Melbourne later this year, where they will be mentored by Dana Lenko (owner and designer of Lenko designs) on the ins and outs of designing in the fashion industry. There is also the Carmel Ryan Adult Encouragement Award, a cash prize given to a designer who shows potential in creating wearable art.

The evening show will feature the coveted Central Craft Acquisition Award and the Territory Loans Masterclass Award, as well as the various category winners.

Primary school students have also been working hard this year and we are excited to see who will take out the performance prizes as well as the Alice Springs Camera House Encouragement Award.

The Alice Desert Festival Wearable Art Awards would also like to thank our other generous sponsors for this year’s show: Brian Tucker, Alice Springs Airport, Jen Standish-White, Yeperenye Shopping Centre, Plumbtech (Taps, Tubs and Tiles), Alice Springs Nursery and Rotary Club of Mbantua for this year’s show.
