Festival on cue
Preparations for the City of Canning’s STEAM Festival are speeding up as the event nears its Australian debut.
PREPARATIONS for an Australian-first technology carnival are gaining momentum, as the festival’s crown jewels recently arrived in Perth.
The carnival’s 10 giant tech-games are being assembled ahead of the December 8 event in Canning.
Boasting lasers, fire, robots, science, engineering, art and all things technology, the Steam (Science Technology, Engineering, Arts and Maths) Carnival will be run in conjunction with LA-based Two Bit Circus Foundation.
Foundation host Justin Finuliar said they were counting the days until they opened the carnival for the first time in Oz.
“Two Bit Circus is a band of mad scientists, roboticists, visual artists and storytellers,” he said.
“We engineer entertainment that is imaginative and interactive, blurring the line between physical and digital playgrounds to create a new world of social amusement.”
The carnival will be held at the Canning Exhibition Centre and Showgrounds.
Tickets are $10 per person or $25 for a family pass (two adults and two children or one adult and three children).
