Strand Ephemera 2013 

Strand Ephemera, first held in 2001, is Townsville’s biennial outdoor sculpture festival, offering a major exhibition, workshops, talks and performances. Held along the 2 kilometre Strand recreational area, it incorporates highly engaging and creative artworks within an idyllic landscape.

In 2013, the exhibition was held from 30 August - 8 September.

Strand Ephemera 2013 featured 31 artworks, however the realisation of these works has involved the considerable effort of over 40 artists and participants—and countless more sponsors and supporters.

Strand Ephemera’s concentrated national exhibition marketing strategy greatly assisted promotion of not only the event, but the region, and the success of this strategy was recently recognised by winning the ‘Best Tourism Events Communication Strategy’ at the Government Communications Australia Awards 2014.
