Inkfest, a multi-event festival of arts in the print media, is held in tropical Cairns. The biennial event is organised by Inkmasters Cairns Inc, a not-for-profit arts organisation, established in 2011. Inkmasters aims to raise the profile of printmaking as an art form and promote Cairns as a centre of prinkmaking excellence.
The festival culminates in selected prints from regional, national and international artists being displayed in the Inkmasters Print Exhibition at the Tanks Arts Centre. Other activities attached to Inkfest include artists-in-residence, artist talks, workshops, The BIG Print Event and a number of community engagement events. Inkfest 2016, to be held on May 30, will be the third festival held by Inkmasters and will prove to be the biggest and best to date.
