Hotbed Designs work with festival teams, public programmers and event managers to develop inclusive visual arts programs for the community.

Our activities are designed to complement and inform existing programs in public institutions such as museums, art galleries, botanic gardens, theatres, libraries and other local government venues.

Hotbed Designs conduct visual arts activities at fair days and large-scale public festivals that service 1000s of community participants. Regular clients include Sydney Festival, NSW Parks and Wildlife World Environment Day and World Heritage Day Festivals, Sydney Children’s Festival and Ultimo Science Festival, Harris Farm Fair Days and local government events.
Our fun programs range from take-home out-comes, like printed calico show bags and wearable craft activities to large collaborative outcomes for public display, like mural panels and woven sculptures.
If required new Hotbed Designs stamps are designed and carved using visual themes that suit the clients needs. The stamps work on a range of substrates read more about them here.

We develop fine art classes, craft projects and collaborative instillations that are fun experiences and help participants further their understanding of the exhibition content.

Creative re-use and fine art workshops in local libraries, theaters and shopping centers that support environmental education programs promoting change and introducing solutions.

Workshops with local businesses to produce practical resources such as, How To Compost T towels, Low Waste Shopping Bags and Waste Management Signs.
