Change of Art Festival is a community arts project that was created by a group of theatre practitioners and artists, who came together through shared activism and an affiliation with Hope Not Hate. The Festival takes place in June every other year and aims to bring people of different backgrounds and faiths together for a day of celebration of a common theme.
The 2017 Change of Art Festival was a variety-style show performed by a diverse range of groups and individuals from across the capital. We had multi award-winning comedian Bridget Christie performing comedy, alongside John Livingston Dance, an incredible dancer with Down’s Syndrome, a musician doing Bangladeshi folk, brand new theatre pieces and lots, lots more. Our compère for the evening was Sindhu Vee, a British New Comedy Award 2016 finalist.
“Thank you for hosting such a special event! Hugely inspiring.”
– the organisers of The Great Get Together 2017
“If more festivals could be organised with this much heart, the arts would indeed change.”
-Nicholas, from John Livingston Dance
