After a month spent on pulling together an arts grant application, the Tableland Folk Festival, Children Festival organising team met at the Tree Kangaroo Cafe, Malanda, North Queensland, Australia. Winter has come early to the Tablelands in this tropical mountain area, so we took our chairs into the carpark to catch the sun. We are talking about how to design the arts and music activities of the Children Festival around an Insect Theme. A dance teacher will design an insect choreography. A giant puppet shall be made – ?Praying Mantis. Any ideas most welcome, especially making insect sounds.
