The National Youth Week Planning Committee have put together an exciting opportunity for young artists to exhibit and sell their work during the 2016 KickstART Festival!


Presented by Propel Youth Arts WA, the KickstART Festival is a massive series of events designed to SPARK your creativity and set your creative juices flowing. Held in celebration of National Youth Week, the KickstART Festival (Saturday 9 -  Sunday 24 April) features creative workshops, discussion forums, exhibitions, concerts and an abundance of special events for young people in the Perth area.

Some key events at the 2016 KickstART Festival include the KickstART Festival Day (Saturday 16 April), which will include the KickstART Markets, and KickstARTISTS; an art exhibition featuring local artists aged 12 – 25. 


1. Select no more than three original pieces of your work that would like to exhibit.

Please note: If you are going to create new pieces please keep in mind that you have less than two weeks until the cut off date to enter your expression of interest. 

2. Fill in the online registration form by 5.00pm Friday 18 March with your details and upload up to three images of your selected pieces when prompted in the form.

Important! When saving your images, please name the files as follows:

Please note: Uploads for individual images cannot exceed 10MB, so please resize if your submission is a larger file than this. 


Successful artists will be notified by 21 March. Information regarding bump in & bump out, number of pieces you can exhibited, and any other relevant information will also be emailed to you on 21 March. 


During the KickstARTISTS exhibition, Artists are welcome and encouraged to offer up their submissions for sale to the general public. Artists are free to leave business cards and contact details with exhibition staff. 

However, the staff and volunteers at Propel Youth Arts WA and the KickstART Festival are not permitted to sell your artwork on your behalf and any sales must be made privately between artist and customer. If you sell a piece during the KickstART Festival, you will be responsible for visiting The Showcase Gallery during opening hours to place a red dot on your artwork (red dots will be provided). If you are unable to do so, you will need to make arrangements with Project Officer, Laura Perini as soon as an artwork is sold. 



All enquiries can be directed to Laura Perini, Project Officer – NYW at or 08 9328 5855.
