Inter-Arts 'Art Through Trauma' Festival
Updated: Mar 28, 2021
Welcome Everyone. We are excited to let you know that on Sunday 12th of August our preview for our first Inter-Arts Summer Festival, 'Art through Trauma' is happening from 2pm - 4 pm at our base camp, at Artsmill, Hebden Bridge and it is running till Sunday 19th of August. This is our first Summer Inter-Arts Festival and we are all very excited and slightly nervous about it...eek. :) A lot of the work submitted has been centred around trauma and has featured quite a lot in our classes, so it made sense to build the work around this. Please come along and see what you think and support all the artists involved.
We have some amazing Artists, including the brilliant David Rusbatch who has produced our amazing logo. Thank you David. :) Empowering work from Victoria Shone, Bethany Weaves Art, Skye Shadowlight, Keiron Lee Higgins, Socs Blakely, Microphone Jack, Elaine Hook, Eileen Wright and Me - Fiona Love.

Saturday 18th of August - 'Listen with Mother' by Leslie Davidoff produced by The Factoryline. A cabaret theatre performance, filled with song about our relationships we have with our mothers. "There is laughter, tears and that bit in between. A great night out. " Doors open at 7.30pm
We also have talks on Sunday 19th of August with Skye Shadowlight at 2pm - Talking about 'Reframing Trauma'
There is still more to be announced but this is looking like its going to be a good first Inter-Arts Festival. A BIG HUGE Thank You goes out to Catherine and David Leedham for believing in us. You both and the whole team at Artsmill are the best and have given many Artist and Creatives so many opportunities. Thank You.
