Reach for the Stars - The 22nd Alice Springs Beanie Festival

Exhibitions

Opening Friday 29 June

In 2018 the nationally and internationally iconic Alice Springs Beanie Festival hits hyper-drive, going intergalactic with Reach for the Stars. The exhibition in the Araluen Galleries will see makers from across the desert, the continent, the planet, and beyond, respond with knitted, felted and crocheted interstellar wonders! Opening night celebrations features the announcement of exhibition winners, live music, parade, performance and food as thousands make the necessary computations and calibrations, setting the controls for the heart and descending on the Araluen Cultural Precinct. At Beanie Central, thousands of beanies shine like a galaxy visible to the naked eye, as you try and buy, join a workshop, learn a creative skill and become part of the incredible Alice Springs Beanie Festival crosscultural community. So get your Ziggy Stardust on, make the jump and Reach for the Stars at the 2018 Alice Springs Beanie Festival.
