The Casula Powerhouse Arts Centre will be taken over by budding young artists when the 3rd annual Way out West (WOW) Festival for Children takes place on 9th to 12th July 2014. A free event, it is Sydney’s only contemporary arts festival dedicated to children and features hands-on sessions with some of Australia’s leading artists.
With the 2014 theme of ‘cultural storytelling’, the Festival’s program has pulled stories from across the globe including Japan, Egypt and Australia. It features an exciting selection of family-friendly performances, fantastical films and art making workshops, all designed to generate a new wave of creativity in youths.
Director of Casula Powerhouse Arts Centre, Kiersten Fishburn, says that the WOW Festival is the highest quality children’s festival to come out of South West Sydney, if not Sydney-wide.
“Over the duration of the Festival, children will be engaged in a range of creative workshops including Tanabata, a Japanese weaving workshop facilitated by Melbourne Japanese Artist Chaco Kato,” said Fishburn.
