Request for Proposals
The fourth annual Augusto! Children's Festival will take place from August 7 to August 9, 2020, at the St. Elias Convention Centre in Haines Junction, Yukon. The festival will run from late Friday afternoon until midday on Sunday and focus on art, music and other traditional children's festival activities. This festival is geared towards children ages 12 and under. Each year Augusto! has a new theme, in order to ensure variety in activities, artists and performers. This also keeps the event new and engaging for attendees.
A total of 28 one hour workshops are proposed during the festival: 20 on Saturday and 8 on Sunday, for children ages 5 to 12. Workshops will take place between 10:00 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. on Saturday and between 10:00a.m. and 12:30 p.m. on Sunday. The workshops include visual and performing art workshops (75%) and other workshops (25%). Workshops in 2020 will focus on the theme of 'World of Dreamers'. There is plenty of scope for imagination with this theme, so let yourself go in the world of fantasy and see where it takes you.
The festival will also continue to have an emphasis on up-cycling, repurposing found objects and transforming waste materials into expressive art explorations and musical instruments.
