Festivals and events

Whilst our work is centred on people and communities, it is also sensitively exposed to debate and exhibition through festivals, events and exhibitions.

The artist commissions which are produced as part of our residency programme, and designed in the first instance as site specific works often take on a whole new life through being presented or toured as part of a range of festivals.

Now we are interested in exploring  how our programme could lend itself to partnering a wider range of festivals – and we are open to inspired ideas and invitations as to how we may do something meaningful for your community. Please talk to us if you have a project in mind, or want us to produce work specifically for your festival.

The Big M has been specifically developed as a mobile touring venue to present our work – so we are extremely flexible about  locations and logistics. Please contact us about using it at your festival or event.
