16 & 17 February, Dartington Hall
This new festival will enable you as a disabled person or non-disabled person to “come out of your shell, come out of your comfort zone.”
From “retro gaming” to a steam punk masked ball, relaxed cinema screenings; orchestra performances and workshops will help “normal human beings, just with a difference” to take part…
“If you’ve never experienced an art festival before then this might be the one for you” There’s lots to do as well as see and listen too.
You can become a young broadcaster with Soundart Radio, create masks and take on a new identity for the STEAM PUNK Masked Ball; Join the Farflung Dance Theatre Flashmob or create your own Early Man’ animation on a bus!
If you’re “trying to develop life skills, art skills and creative skills” then there’ll be something for you; from signing to parkour, ‘have a go’ film making to graphic art master classes.
The Festival Creators “bring new ideas to this festival” and their commitment has been an inspiration;
“Great Artists have AGREED TO COME FOR FREE” e.g. Batman and Star Wars Artist Jock will be at the Comicfest workshop on Saturday 17 Feb – First time ever at Dartington.
Top notch arts organisations are coming to deliver workshops and perform e.g. The Theatre Royal, Plymouth, The Turning Tides Big Band, Create Studios and their Digital Bus, Forkbeard Fantasy and Biggerhouse Films, Parkour Experience, Firstborn Creatives and the South-West Open Youth Orchestra
