Festivals are vibrant artistic platforms. They are meeting points, and a hive of activity for people to network, share skills, exchange ideas, and share each other’s art with wide and varied audiences. We work with festivals across SSA and the UK through:

An annual meet up for festival leaders from SSA and the UK to connect, share, and test new ways of working together.

Future Festivals: An open call for SSA and UK festivals to exchange and showcase new contemporary art.

CollabNowNow: A digital arts residency taking place within festivals, giving SSA and UK artists the time and space to experiment, make new art, and connect their art to new audiences.
