Knock Knock Contemporary Artists’ Initiative is a cooperative venture formed in 2010 in a commitment to enhancing Cairns vibrant arts community. Knock Knock aims to invigorate the contemporary arts scene through an on-going exhibition programme run by artists for artists.
Knock Knock is a dynamic group of artists who came together in their pursuit of further training and professional development within their own art practices. The name Knock Knock eventuated as a catchy phrase for access and open doors for up-coming and established local artists.
Knock Knock has a strong focus on growing grassroots exhibition opportunities in the Cairns region; access to professional development and training for visual artists; developing creative partnerships within the broader community and generally supporting innovation in contemporary visual arts. The group’s vision is to contribute to building Cairns’ identity as an arts destination.
