donate a window
or outdoor space

We are looking for window (in particular street level) or outdoor space to use to display art for this years festival. We are hoping to use donated window spaces to showcase the creative work of vital local community groups and under-represented artists, whilst bringing some much needed collective creative joy to the whole community! It has been a difficult year for everyone, lets come together and do something fun. Use the application form on this page to offer your space!

Have you got your own idea for an exbibition or an event & a venue in mind?

Window Spaces

If you would like your window display to be part of the festival programme, but missed our 'register of interest' stage of applications do not fear as you will have a chance to apply again in July for our more formal 'open call' for applications. You could also take part without applying at all and just join in the fun!

Socially distanced outdoor events/exhibitions and online activity

If you have an idea for an event or exhibition that you would like to be in the festival programme you will also have a chance to apply again in July for our more formal 'open call' for applications.

Imagine... beautiful window displays in flats and houses across the city, a collaborative sculpture in a garden or park, a drive-in-cinema, wall murals, postal projects, painted shop-shutters, online performances, online discussions, watch together and discuss film screenings, doorstep performances or art taking over advertising spaces!
