New Posters and Community Bunting - Devonport Arts Festival Update

Welcome to the Devonport Arts Festival update. The first bit of exciting news is that the new poster image for the 2014 Festival has been designed.  I wanted it to be distinctly Devonport, whilst retaining a strong graphic feel and colour way. If you look closely, it also hints at a few of the exciting things you can expect to take place during the festival week.

One of these creative projects, which is underway right now is the Community Bunting project. I'm looking for hundreds of participants to join me in creating bunting flags of any type of creative material. They could be woven out of flax, or cut from painted bubble-wrap. Collaged, knitted, plaited or embroidered; you choose your medium, and make as many as you can. Each flag will be sewn together to create community bunting, and this will be raised along the length of Victoria road. So go to for details on size specifications and collection points.
If you wish to be a part of the festival in others ways, be it organising an event, sponsoring an event, or simply helping out on the opening day, then please get in touch. I'd love to hear from you.
