Junction Arts Festival: ArtistsJunction Arts Festival brings world class live art and performance to Launceston's alleyways, shopfronts, rooftop car parks and hidden spaces. Happening for the fourth time this year, Junction Arts Festival provides completely unique arts experiences in Tasmania and has a particular focus on offering the audience and opportunity to experience both traditional notions o art and venue in completely new ways.

The festival carefully curates leading local, national and international artists and projects that place the audience at the centre of the arts experience. Junction Arts Festival is a developmental organisation that works closely with artists to develop, produce and realise their work. Junction presents works in all stages of creation by artists in all stages of their career.

Through new commissions, international artist residencies, artist research and development, workshops, site-specific public installations, performances, exhibitions, events, lectures, screenings, and children's programming, Junction Arts Festival aims to present a rigorous and conceptually engaged program for the presentation of contemporary art. The creation of co-presentations and co-commissions with national and international presenters support an international cultural exchange of ideas and new practices, and the development of participatory and site-specific work in Tasmania.

Executive Director Natalie De Vito as well as local artist programmed in this year's Junction Arts Festival will speak to the Artforum audience about their practice.
