Ingenuity Sculpture Festival

The Ingenuity Festival is an annual sculpture festival held along the Mullumbimby Sculpture Walk in Palm Park.

It is about art making that is site specific, fostering creative inventiveness.

The festival is a showcase for both professional and amateur artists across the Northern Rivers.

It celebrates traditional and contemporary knowledge and art, promotes community input into publicly presented sculpture, whilst advocating for a sustainable future.

The festival has evolved three strands of inclusion.

A curated program of selected sculptural and place making installations by professional artists and regional emerging artists.

A Smalls Gallery allowing participating artists to also exhibit smaller works.

A number of curated programs and installations that directly involve the local community in site specific art making. 

Combined, the 2018 and 2019 Ingenuity Festivals have showcased more than sixty large works by individual artists and collectives.  

In its first two years, Ingenuity has attracted thousands of local, interstate and international visitors.
