Stratford prepares for 11th River Festival
Positive River Festival 2016 // Part. 2 - Reggae Days2017 non stare nella pelle
Boat-lovers and landlubbers alike will be treated to a spectacular nautical sight at Stratford River Festival this weekend when more than striking boats adorn the banks. Visitors have the chance to win a free boat trip when they vote for their favourite in the Best Boat Competition. This year, scores of vintage Russell Newbery engine enthusiasts chose to hold their annual rally in Stratford upon Avon for the very first time, to coincide with the festival. People are fascinated by them and love looking at them and talking to people who live, or spend a good deal of their time, on boats. They want to know what life is like on the waterways.
This summer Liverpool will stage a series of remarkable events as part of the RISE programme for This progressive city will pay homage to extraordinary women from Liverpool and around the world to inspire, educate and empower others. The visionary programme features a series of brand new artistic commissions, world-firsts, exhibitions and performances by leading female artists, thinkers and leaders, with the majority of activities being free to attend. Yolart creates large-scale reinterpretations of classic paintings and traditional imagery and presents them as part of the urban landscape. The photographs will be installed and displayed on 9 shipping containers at The Pier Head, erected as part of River Festival Liverpool June nd. Inspired by the light, delicate structure of sea urchin shells that reveal one of the most spectacular patterns found in nature and all hand-crocheted with industrial marine fibre by women across the World, the focus is to raise awareness of our fragile oceans. Liverpool will be able to see up to five Urchins in place across the site throughout the month of June.
For a band that sticks to its impulses instead of trends, Cloud Nothings accumulates critical praise and loyal fans with the type of ease modern rock bands can only dream of. Castlecomer has been making music together and touring the global festival circuit the past few years. The band is fronted by vocalist Bede Kennedy. He is joined in the band by three cousins Joe, Tom and Patch two of whom are brothers , along with close family friend, Neely. They have been described as delivering "a unique form of alternative guitar pop ready made for huge dance parties and crowd sing-a-longs". Best known for her hard-hitting DJ sets combining hip-hop, house, funky breaks and Afro-caribbean vibes.
We strongly believe that educating present and future generations, promoting dialogue and collaboration and empowering individuals and communities through public art can help promote positive change and attitudes. Our festival by its very nature is underpinned by the spirit of collaboration and creative dialogue. Small Changes lead to big results! As our festival raises awareness and engenders collaboration, we also look to inspire and empower all those around us. One of our primary goals is to help people recognise the power of their individual agency in improving their communities and our shared environment.
