The Australian Body Art Carnivale is held annually in Eumundi and the dates for 2012 are from Saturday 12 May and Sunday 13 May.
The 2012 theme is "Under the Sea", providing an absolute wealth of inspiration for artists. The Carnivale will again be ‘A Festival of Colour’ centred around body art in its many and varied forms. For members of the public, it will be nothing short of phenomenal to watch the human canvases take shape during the competitions. For artists it presents an opportunity to showcase their creativity, experience the amazing atmosphere of the Carnivale and compete for over $12,000 in cash and prizes.
There will be a feast of other entertainment including a gala ticketed event on the Saturday evening, competitions and exhibitions in wearable art, vehicle art and photography. There will also be music, world-class street performers and a whole lot more.
