HandFestival 2019

First presented in Stockholm in 2018, Hand Festival is coming to Peter Mac and you're invited.

Peter Mac’s Wellbeing Centre has partnered with artists, designers and choreographers from RMIT University and the University Arts Stockholm to host HandFestival 2019. 

This two-hour choreographed event is designed for staff, patients, family, friends and carers to participate, where the focus is on the hand as a site for trust, expression and conversation.

Join us for a hand massage, close-up magic, music, cat’s cradle, drawings, knitting, wax modelling, origami and more. You’re welcome to bring along your own hand activities (drawing, knitting, cards, sewing, crotchet) if you like. 

The HandFestival was first presented in Stockholm in 2018 and has been developed for the Peter Mac Wellbeing Centre as a result of health and creative practice research undertaken by researchers from the Karolinska Institutet, Uni. Arts Stockholm, Konstfack (Stockholm) and RMIT University.

We really look forward to seeing you at the festival!
