The AWESOME International Arts Festival for Bright Young Things (the AWESOME Festival) is presented annually in the Perth CBD. The Festival showcases a spectacular array of events including theatre, dance, early childhood activities, music, film, literature, visual arts and creative hands-on activities. AWESOME is committed to presenting high-quality, layered programming for children aged 0 – 12 and their families.
Since 2015, AWESOME has partnered with DADAA (Disability in the Arts, Disadvantage in the Arts Australia) to develop a navigational guide for parents with children on the Autism Spectrum. The guide is created in partnership with the artists we engage at the AWESOME Festival. It includes important information that may help these families make great program choices based on the individual needs of their child and enhance their AWESOME Festival experience.
