The Australian Body Art Carnivale is Australia’s premier body art event, attracting artists and spectators from across Australia and overseas.
Amazing artworks and music all weekend. And it's FREE!
The Australian Body Art Carnivale is held annually in Eumundi, the dates for 2014 are Saturday 3 May and Sunday 4 May.
The 2014 theme is the "Dreams and Nightmares" which lends itself to a wide range of interpretations 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 $14,000 in cash and prizes.
There will be a feast of other entertainment including ticketed events on the Friday and Saturday evenings, competitions and exhibitions in wearable art, vehicle art and photography.
All weekend there will also be music, street performers, market stalls, and lots of fun activities for kids and families including face painting, craft workshops, pavement art and the ‘All Dolled Up’ doll decoration workshop and competition.
