PREMIER OF SOUTH AUSTRALIA

CEO AND ARTISTIC DIRECTOR, ADELAIDE FESTIVAL CENTRE

DREAMBIG CHILDREN’S FESTIVAL CREATIVE PRODUCER

It was an honour for Adelaide Festival Centre to produce South Australia’s beloved Come Out Children’s Festival in 2015. The highly successful nine day festival engaged with over 100,000 children and their communities and received overwhelmingly positive feedback from schools and families.

Welcome to DreamBIG, SA’s festival for schools and families that is amongst the biggest, brightest and boldest of its kind in the world. The name might have changed but DreamBIG continues its proud history.

With a new name in 2016, DreamBIG Children’s Festival will engage with children and their families from across South Australia, and I am looking forward to a successful event. Engaging with the arts brings great joy to our children, and it contributes to their intellectual development and wellbeing. The opportunities for creativity and artistic expression that stem from a festival such as DreamBIG cannot be overestimated.

In 2017, we are pleased to continue the tradition of the festival with its new name and we look forward to bringing DreamBIG Children’s Festival to children and families across South Australia.

The theme this time is ‘Feed the Mind’. Feeding the hungry minds of children with a multiplicity of arts experiences is vital to their development. It’s a proven fact – an arts rich education benefits children now and into their futures. This festival is a celebration of how creativity can nourish, challenge and burst open the minds of students with new ideas, questions, wonder and fun.

DreamBIG Singing Opening Event

AGES: ALL

EVENT TYPE: OPENING EVENT

Thursday 18 May – 11am

In an event that is fast becoming a festival tradition, 2000 school children from primary schools around Adelaide will create the Mighty Choir of Small Voices and sing a newly composed song – 'Dream Big' by Robyn Habel – to celebrate the re-naming of Come Out Children’s Festival as DreamBIG Children’s Festival. This year’s theme is 'Feed the Mind' and we are transforming Adelaide’s footbridge into one big neural pathway. Gathering at Telstra Plaza Adelaide Oval for the song, the children will then chant, dance and walk their way across the footbridge towards Adelaide Festival Centre beneath large parachutes designed and decorated by regional schools with images describing all the wonderful things that can feed our minds.

Viral Written By Sally Hardy

AUSTRALIAN PREMIERE

Cassie is 17 years old, and her father is dying of cancer. Somehow Cassie must find the words to say goodbye – but how can she do this without revealing who she really is? As if school pressures, cyber scandals and friendships gone wrong are not enough to deal with, Cassie must face all of this while her world is turned

upside down by cancer. Then again, if she can find the courage, it might just be the making of her. Alongside the painfully important issue of childhood grief, this awardwinning play tackles some of the most pressing issues facing young people today with humour and sensitivity.

HART Between the years 1900–1970, an unknown number of Indigenous Australian children were forcibly removed from their families. Parents driven mad, grandparents heartbroken, siblings torn apart, language lost, and culture stripped away. Using testimonials from survivors of the Stolen Generations, Noongar man Ian Michael shares the silenced stories of this country in a multi award-winning performance that is matter-offact, heartfelt and accessible.
