The Australian Body Art Carnivale is Australia’s premier body art event, attracting artists and spectators from across Australia and overseas.
The Australian Body Art Carnivale is held annually in Eumundi, the dates for 2011 are from Friday 13 May to Sunday 15 May, 2011. This year will see the expansion of all elements of the festival and the theme is MAGIC, providing an absolute wealth of inspiration for artists.
The Carnivale will again be ‘A Festival of Colour’ centred around body art in its many and varied forms. For members of the public, it will be nothing short of phenomenal to watch the human canvases take shape during the competitions. For artists it presents an opportunity to showcase their creativity, experience the amazing atmosphere of the Carnivale and compete for over $16,000 in cash and prizes.
There will be a feast of other entertainment including a gala launch with the Masked Gallery Art Walk, competitions and exhibitions in pavement art, wearable art, vehicle art and photography. There will also be music, world-class street performers, workshops, a Saturday evening sunset street party, and a whole lot more.
