The chance to produce a festival with a group of creative young people, with budget behind it and support from industry professionals, might seem like the stuff of dreams, but, my friends, it’s not – this a real opportunity we have at Tate St Ives kicking off this Saturday.

Come and join in with Festival Lab and be there from the beginning as we start planning something to take St Ives by storm in 2016. Things we know:

  • We’re creating a festival (duh)
  • It’s happening in and around Tate St Ives in 2016
  • It’ll be for people aged 15-25
  • It’s going to be produced by people aged 15-25
  • It’s going to be FREE

The rest is up to you.

(We’ll be creating something unique, but taking inspiration from Festivals across the globe as well as the fine Circuit Festivals that have come before us: Hyperlink, Blueprint, Unlock Cambridge, and Affinity. Thanks for blazing the trail.)

Festival Lab happens Saturday 31 October, 14 and 28 November, and 12 December, 11.00-14.00 at Porthmeor Studio 5 (continuing January 2015). It’s completely free to be part of, including lunch.
