Partnership Opportunities with the DreamBIG Children’s Festival 2017

DreamBIG Children’s Festival – for, with, and by the children of South Australia  – places its audience at the centre of fresh, inventive, imaginative and inspiring arts experiences.

DreamBIG Children’s Festival is South Australia’s pre-eminent arts festival for children and families. Formerly the Come Out Festival it was renamed in early 2016 by an 8 year old primary school student in a competition run throughout South Australia.

The theme of the festival in 2017 is Feed the Mind – because feeding the hungry minds of children with a range of creative inputs is vital to their development. Some of the most important attributes we want children to develop for the future are communication, collaboration, problem-solving, self-confidence, compassion, curiosity, imagination and creativity. Study after study has shown that an arts rich education is incredibly effective at developing all these vital skills. 

The Festival will start on Thursday 18 May with a massive Opening Parade involving over 2,000 primary school students who will congregate in a chorus of song on their way to the many events on offer around the Adelaide Festival Centre.

Following the Opening Parade will be the Big Family Weekend  on Saturday 20 and Sunday 21 May, which will include all of the shows in the Festival plus a number of special, quirky, interesting, unique free events for the family along the North Terrace precinct.  We are hoping to again attract at least 30,000 people to the Big Family Weekend  (25,000 children and their families attended the inaugural Big Family Weekend in 2015).
