Junction is a Festival that values the diverse community we are proud to be part of.

It is a festival for all and we are committed to ensuring that artists and audiences of all abilities can make the most of our program.

We strive to make the festival wholly accessible to people of all abilities, culturally and linguistically diverse, and from varied socio-economic backgrounds. Presenting art in unique and unused spaces that are not purpose built for the primary pursuit of hosting performances and installations is an enormous challenge each year.

Much time and consideration is funnelled into achieving the best result for artists and audiences alike whilst utilising the limited venue options around Prince’s Square. Junction Arts Festival takes pride in utilising interesting and unusual spaces in and around Launceston, highlighting the incredible architecture of the city. We are dedicated to sharing these spaces with our audiences, unlocking unlikely venues and providing the best possible experience for Festival goers. The information on this page provides information on Junction’s venues and accessibility.

Prince’s Square

Princes Square is a City of Launceston managed asset that we hire as our Festival Hub for the duration of Junction Arts Festival. Junction are not responsible for the maintenance of this public space.

Prince’s Square has several grassy areas and very low edging along the pathways. The low edging is accessible, and in higher areas of this we provide ramps to allow for full access to grassed areas.

The performance venues inside Prince’s Square include Junction’s Little Devil, as well as the Main Stage. All of these venues are wheelchair accessible. The Little Devil seating is unreserved, and there is space available for those using wheelchairs. The Main Bar has limited seating, but plenty of space for everyone.

For details about a specific venue’s accessibility, please send us an email to info@junctionartsfestival.com.au or call us on 0422 762 197.
