In 2019 I developed and delivered ‘Mabgate Annual’ a community arts festival on the north eastern periphery of the city. This one day event transformed an unused green space into an interactive art event for local residents and the public to enjoy for free. The festival included the closure of a busy through road in Mabgate opening up a large open space for seating, food and drink stalls, performance space and interactive workshops.
The event not only attracted many visitors but also generated income for traders and local businesses who took part in the event. It was also a great opportunity for those businesses to meet each other and network and created opportunities for further collaboration together in the area. Link to website
