Cashin' Your Trash in

A beloved K-Town favourite makes an exciting return next month, as the 2023 Katherine Junk Festival celebrates all things trash. Presented by the legends at Katherine Regional Arts, the sustainable Junk Fest brings the community together for an action-packed day of fun whilst shining a light on the catastrophic effects our actions as consumers have on the environment.

By Tierney Seccull

Junk Fest is fun for the whole family, and offers live music and dance performances, food and kids’ play spaces, but a true favourite is the Junk Art Competition, where participants and groups can submit junk art works made entirely from reused and recycled materials.

The time has come to get those thinking caps on, friends, as Junk Fest organisers are calling for your trashy submissions!

There’s a range of categories to enter including sculptures, junk fashion and junk shoes, and there’s even special categories for tots, tweens and teens. Plus, there’s thousands of bucks up for grabs in prize money. If you need some inspo, crafters and creatives are invited to work on their trashy creations over a series of workshops every Tuesday evening.

So if you’ve got a trashy idea or some funky junk to share, Junk Fest is keen to cash in your trash.
