Reclaim the Lane is Devonport’s youth arts and music festival celebrating the contributions young people make to the Devonport community and providing a space for young artists and musicians to exhibit their work. The event is coordinated by Devonport Regional Gallery (DRG), Devonport City Council (DCC) and Youth, Family & Community Connections Inc. (YFCC), and organised by young volunteers of DRG, the Droogs.
Reclaim the Lane converts Rooke Lane from a traffic thoroughfare into a vibrant and creative event catering to the city’s young people and their families. This is the fifth year Reclaim the Lane celebrates National Youth Week in Devonport, and an audience of 500 is expected to attend.
The 2016 event will be held:
Friday 8 April 2016, 3–5 pm
Rooke Lane, Devonport (between Steele and Stewart Streets)
Reclaim the Lane market
For the 2016 event, the Droogs wish to provide an opportunity for young makers (aged 16 to 30 years) to sell and promote their wares to a local audience. Due to limited space, only five makers will be selected to have a stall at Reclaim the Lane 2016. This is a unique and exclusive opportunity for young makers across the North West of Tasmania.
The event organisers will select the five makers using the following selection criteria:
- Quality (Tasmanian designed and made by you)
- Age (makers must be between the ages of 16 and 30 years)
- Price (as this is a youth event, consideration will be made regarding the affordability of products to a young market)
