CURRENT Expressions of Interest

Would you like to get involved in Urchins Australia?

We are seeking expressions of interest from people to assist with the assembly of crochet motifs and strips for the Urchins Australia temporary art installation at Appel Park, Surfers Paradise that will premiere during Festival 2018, part of the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games.

After a month of crocheting with over 60 crocheters taking part, we are ready to bring this incredible form to life. The assembly requires basic sewing, patience and an eagerness to be a part of something very special! We need help between March 19 - March 29.

If you’re interested in getting involved in this stage of Urchins Australia, we’d love to hear from you.
