Castaways Sculpture Awards is the City of Rockingham's signature annual arts and culture event. Celebrating artistic innovation and environmental awareness, Castaways is a showcase of artworks created from repurposed materials at the Rockingham Foreshore.
Commencing in 2008 as a community arts project to raise awareness around the discarded items or 'castaways' washing up on local beaches, Castaways has continued to expand and evolve. Today the event provides an important opportunity for emerging and professional Western Australian artists, schools and local businesses to be a part of a regionally-recognised arts program that continues to promote sustainability values.
Castaways Sculpture Awards 2021 will consist of three exhibitions with a non-acquisitive prize pool of $26,000. These include the Main Exhibition and Schools Competition displayed at the Rockingham Foreshore; and the Maquette and Small Sculpture Exhibition at the Rockingham Arts Centre.
All three exhibitions will run concurrently from Saturday 23 October – Sunday 31 October. During the exhibition, pick up a free Castaways catalogue from the information tent at the Rockingham Foreshore, which will be open daily from 9am - 5pm.
