Our 2017 Festival Theme is 'Roots' Our 2017 festival will introduce the theme of Roots, celebrating Didsbury’s rich history, creativity and cultural diversity. Artists will have the freedom to explore a broad range of interpretations of the theme in their work. The briefs will not be prescriptive or directed; rather artists will be encouraged to bring their flare and originality to develop the theme creatively and artistically. We look forward to seeing the results at the festival. Our call for submissions will be launched in the Autumn, so watch this space and sign up to out mailing list to ensure you hear about it first.
