Artists Wanted for Didsbury Arts Festival 2017

Didsbury Arts Festival (DAF) is multi arts festival taking place across Didsbury biennially which celebrates creativity and community. Since 2009 the festival has been bringing the town to life with a rich programme of creativity spanning 10 days. DAF is a volunteer led festival that works with the local community, artists and local businesses to promote increased arts activity in Didsbury.

The next festival will take place 24th June – 2nd July 2017 and the festival is on the lookout for an eclectic mix of creatives to get involved. Artists from all backgrounds and disciplines are invited to submit an idea via the open online submissions page. Performances and art works could be presented in a café, shop, church, pub, library, on the street, in the park – or anywhere in between!

Ideas of what we are looking to programme include theatre, live music, pop-up performance, installations, visual art, film and creative workshops.
