This year’s Zest Festival organisers are calling on people with a ‘story to tell’ to submit sculptures, stories and objects for presentation at two exhibitions at the Kalbarri event in September this year.

The ‘Binding Realities Sculpture Exhibition’ will showcase sculptures on the Murchison River Foreshore, while the ‘Far from Home Exhibition’ will display objects and their associated stories.

The Festival, taking place 21-22 September 2013, commemorates the 300th anniversary of the sinking of the Dutch East India Company merchant ship, the Zuytdorp.

Expressions of Interest for participating in the ‘Binding Realities Sculpture Exhibition’ close 15 May, and 31 May for the ‘Far from Home Exhibition’.

To receive an expression of interest information pack, email bursnell@iprimus.com.au
