Take part

If you are a dancer, mover, musician, actor, poet, photographer, film maker, lighting engineer, sound engineer, web designer, fund raiser or marketing specialist we would like to invite you to the Social Arts festival. It is an evening of dance, any form of art and performance aimed at raising awareness of social issues and the violation of human rights.

The 2 day event is a platform for professional and amateur artists who can craft their own art in any form, create a visual performance and share it with an audience.

Each performance will raise awareness of inequality or a violation of human rights such as racism, human trafficking, refugee issues and any other issue that is close to your heart. The event is open to anyone who wants to join, regardless of whether you are a professional performer or not. Anyone is welcome to join and share their creativity and to shed light on a social issue.

The Festival is organised in collaboration with FlowMove – a movement and well-being company, the performing arts association LCP Dance Theatre – award winner for the best human rights choreographies founded by Joanna Puchala and the venue The Lodge Space; sponsored by Minded Institute – the yoga therapy leader, founded by Heather Mason. Any other collaborators are welcome. Please get in touch if you want to support the festival in anyway. We will be happy to give you some more exposure in social media and publicity for a good case.

Spread the word! If you know anyone who could be interested in joining the event please forward them this email!

Any support in kind in organising the festival such as lighting, sound, front house, administration, web-design, advertising, fundraising are very much appreciated.

This workshop is organised independently from the performance. Everyone can join the workshop. If you want to join the festival as a part of the choreography by LCP Dance Theatre we are going to create during the workshop, please let us know the latest by 14th of September. We have limited places so if you are interested in participating in this choreography and then perform it during the festival please apply now. Applications deadline is on the 14th of September. You’ll need to send the application to confirm your participation in the festival. You don’t need to write about the choreography but you need to submit the rest of the requirements of the application so we can include your name, picture, and bio in the programme.
