Knox Arts and Events
Stud Park Reserve, 40 Fulham Rd, RowvilleVictoria
Stringybark focuses on ways to inform and empower the local community to make achievable changes in their daily lives that contribute to a more sustainable way of living. The activities at the event have been developed to contribute to the message.
The official opening features a Wurundjeri Welcome to Country on the Saturday at 11:30am.
Programming highlights feature a myriad of creative play spaces, including:
'The Maker Space' offering up-cycled art creations;
'IC Robotics' with their inventive gadgets and playful robotics; 'Giants of Knox' offering a messy play space where a miniature world is transformed by friendly giants;
'Jurassic Knox' where archaeology and palaeontology intersect in a massive digging space; and
'Compost and Kitchen Revolution' exploring the finer art of composting and waste free cooking.
All day entertainment across the Tribal Stage, Community Stage and Market Stage features a myriad of cultural, community and urban music, dance and vocal performances, and fascinating presentations by "Wild Action" with their Aussie critters and "Van Lifers" will inspire with their unique off-grid lifestyles.
Add a dynamic makers market, a host of community stalls, a delicious food hub, and an active-play ride zone, 2017 promises to be our best Stringybark yet!
See you there!
