Outdoor Visual/Combined Arts Installation 23rd - 26th August, Greenbelt Festival


Greenbelt is seeking Visual/Combined Arts submissions for its festival of arts, activism and belief. The festival boasts a varied line up of arts, music, talks and more, and we are looking for pieces to be exhibited in the beautiful grounds of our festival.

Greenbelt is the leading outdoor festival of artistry and activism. It is progressive, political and spiritual, welcoming strong voices and opinions - those with or without faith, and regardless of background, gender and sexuality. The festival is at Boughton House near Kettering. Our 2019 theme is ‘Wit and Wisdom’. Find out more at www.greenbelt.org.uk.

There are open green spaces and woodland to explore; discover more of the landscape on our Flickr page - https://www.flickr.com/photos/greenbelt/albums

We are particularly keen on proposals that consider the festival theme (‘Wit and Wisdom’) and ethos (blending artistry, activism, spirituality, politics, faith and justice), makes good use of the festival setting and engages festival goers. Greenbelt is not afraid of the provocative, imaginative or thought provoking and our audience likes to participate and be surprised by engaging hidden gems around the festival, in both the day and the night.
