19 - 22 September 2024 - Prince's Square Launceston, Lutruwita / Tasmania


Junction Arts Festival (Junction) exists to bring quality arts and cultural experiences to Launceston, and to take Tasmanian artists to the world.

Junction is an annual Festival of extraordinary arts experiences in unusual spaces throughout Launceston. Our 2024 dates align with the Spring Equinox, the tipping point where winter releases us from her icy embrace, ready to welcome the abundance that Spring brings.

We invite audiences to embark on a kaleidoscope of vibrant experiences. It's a journey like no other, a festival where art, performance + music come together and ignite the warmth in our hearts.

As the sun hides and shadows deepen, the true meaning of light emerges. The burst into Spring is when light and dark engage in their frosty tango. Junction celebrates this dance of opposites, where the absence of light accentuates its brilliance. Just as the festival's nocturnal performances and venues burst with the vibrant colours of spring, the darkness creates the perfect canvas for us to appreciate the beauty and significance of light. It's a chance to reflect on life's dualities and uncover the magic that lies where they intersect.

Junction was first presented as a one-off event annexed to the 2010 Regional Arts Australia Conference. Junction filled a creative niche locally and prompted stakeholders, Events Tasmania and City of Launceston to support the creation of the annual festival, to the delight of Northern artists and audiences.

Junction at Launceston on Kanamaluka/River Tamar, acknowledge Palawa/Tasmanian Aboriginal people as the original and ongoing owners of Lutruwita/Tasmania. We pay our respects to elders past and present and acknowledge that sovereignty has never been ceded. We pledge to support Palawa people to achieve Truth Telling and Treaty.
