Including – Carlie Angel (SA),  Martyn Coutts (VIC), Steven Cybulka (SA), Gail Hocking (SA), Heidi Karo and Isadore Glockner-Karo (SA), Francois Knoetze (ZAF), Susannah Langley and Wayne Armstrong (VIC), Rebecca McEwan and Laura Wills (SA), Kaspar Schmidt Mumm (SA), Cynthia Schwertsiek (SA), Tanya Voges (SA), Marius Jansen van Vuuren (ZAF) & Ella Ziegler (GER).

Connected to the festival was a series of 2 x 2 day workshops titled TRANSFORMING EVERYDAY SITES that focused on temporary site-based art and place-making projects in public spaces. The workshops were open to artists, creatives, performers, art workers and other interested individuals of all ages and levels of practice.
