Darlington Arts Festival 2020 “Platform for talent: get on board”
The eighth annual festival will take place in Darlington from Friday 15th to Monday 18th May 2020.
The multi-faceted showcase aims to highlight the variety of talent in the town across all artforms. The festival is again being supported by Creative Darlington and it will have four main elements: creative writing; visual arts; performing arts; and a festival concert.
- Some funding is available to support events and activities for the festival.
As in previous years, a large part of the festival will be the creative-writing programme. It will offer new and established writers plenty of opportunities to develop their craft via a selection of workshops and performances, readings and talks.
- The deadline for inclusion in this section of the programme is 17th January – download an application form here DfC 2020 CfP – for writers’ events.
In visual arts and performing arts (music, theatre, dance etc), we’d like to hear from anyone who is working towards exhibiting or performing; pop-up spaces might be available – including the free ‘Spotlight on…’ opportunity in the Market Hall on Saturday 16th May providing timeslots of 40 minutes to promote your music group.
Please email email@example.com if you’d like to discuss your ideas for taking part in the festival, such as the Showcase Concert planned for Sunday 17th May in the evening.
