‘Destination Stoke’ is the theme of our eight-week multi-arts festival which will take place in Spring 2020 celebrating Stoke as a creative and attractive place to visit and spend leisure time. The main festival programme will run from mid-March to mid-May 2020, with taster events and activities during February. The festival programme will celebrate all that is good and creative about Stoke, and the new life emerging. Artworks and performances in the town’s public spaces will interrupt, engage and provoke people to take a second look at the locality as artists cut through traditions of a place, jolting people to be surprised by what has been around for years, countering the pervading negative narrative about a place.
We welcome applications from artists for the Art Street element of the festival, please download the document below for full details.
Art Street: high quality unmissable outdoor art installations in the town centre and main streets of Stoke, for a period of eight weeks from mid-March to mid-May 2020. The artworks will be a series of ‘multiples’ resulting in a striking and dynamic transformation in the town centre.
Festival Stoke is a collaborative of creative people working together to make good things happen.
