Partners & Collaborators
Our ambition is to become a national annual event celebrating site-sensitive and immersive arts in unique venues across the UK, offering an exceptional experience in extraordinary spaces for artists and audiences.
However, as with all good things this takes time to develop and we could not have achieved all the wonderful feats we have so far without our partners and collaborators.
