2High Festival 2009

“Backbone Youth Arts presents 2high Festival. For two days Brisbane Powerhouse plays host to 2high Festival which brings young and emerging artists with interactive displays of art, live music, performance, and everything in between.

Coordinated by a team of young dynamic arts enthusiasts, 2high Festival provides an unprecedented showcase opportunity for the highest calibre of emerging creatives and arts exploration.”

"2high Festival pushes the boundaries. It is about touching art and being touched by art."

This year I was involved in the exhibition section of the festival, displaying some of my digital video work

“Every day, 365 days a year, young people are creating ........Queensland - literally! The events, festivals, exhibitions, performances, shows, workshops, venues, companies, organisations, projects and initiatives that are created, run, facilitated or supported by young people across the state are countless. Although these things are happening every single day, the effort, time and resources young people pour into their creative ideas and artistic visions often go unnoticed by the wider community. Young People Creating Queensland is setting out to change that.
Young people are a key part of ........Queensland's Creative Industries and provide the state with artistic vitality and professional skill. This project is about all the young performers, media makers, indigenous artists, musicians, writers, painters, designers, community artists, change-makers, producers”,

D'Alliance Festival

The inaugural D’Alliance Carnivale was held on the 9th May 2009 and was the first fringe style festival of its type on the Gold Coast. The festival captured an array of arts including Aerial Acrobatics, Dance, Music, Street Performers, Visual Arts, Comedy, Short Film and a night light spectacular.

I was lucky enough to receive funding via an arts grant from Youth Arts Queensland called Strut your Stuff to display & co-ordinate two a/v screens on either side of the main stage in the night time. The festival was a great success and had a fabulous turnout reaching full capacity.

A big thankyou to all the people involved who made this festival such a great experience, especially Kylie Mitchell, Fredrick Holler and Emily Cook.

"This is a Highlight Reel of the 2009 D'Alliance Carnival by the Creek.

D'Alliance festival is a celebration of the arts including theatre, performance, comedy, music and visual arts. Embark on a journey of music, magic and mystique. Currumbin Creek becomes an otherworldly place with magicians, street performers, story tellers, gate keepers and maestros.

Alongside the event, workshops were held in flamenco dance, short film, comedy, singing and mask making. Saturday evening culminates with a theatre light spectacular held on the water, with aerial performance and gypsy bands to dance the night away. It is a festival for the young at heart with fun, fantasy and fairytales.
