EAFS is delighted to announce an exciting new partnership with the Fresh Start for the Arts Initiative for Dumfries and Galloway.
Fresh Start is providing some financial support for the Area Arts Hubs to take part in EAFS 2013. This is all part of the Fresh Start commission to creatively support the emerging new arts-led structure for delivering the arts in the region.
This partnership is helping EAFS to realise its ambition of achieving as much participation in the festival right across the length and breadth of Dumfries and Galloway. Also we are now able to extend the timeline of EAFS beyond the initial opening weekend to include special events throughout the Autumn.
We have begun negotiations with the Area Arts Hubs – and have started with the lists of ‘expressions of interest’ and ‘proposals’ already received by EAFS from practitioners and organisations in the different Hub areas.
It is fantastic that there is so much interest and anticipation around the EAFS project – we hope that programming information etc will be available from mid June. In the meantime watch The Commonty for updates.
The opening weekend of Environmental Art Festival Scotland is 30th August to 2nd Sept
