Kidderminster Arts Festival

£565 of £10,000 goal

Raised by 5 people in 58 months



KAF will begin on the 12th of August 2017 and runs until the 27th. We are waiting to hear if we have our funding yet from Arts Council England.  We will know by May.  We have an exciting program planned we just need the funding.

This year we will be celebrating 'pattern' in memory of Lucienne Day and iconic 1950's designer who did a spell in Kidderminster.

KAF is all about working with artists and communities.  We can't do this without your help, if you can make a donation, no matter how small, please do - you'll be putting a lot of smiles on a lot of faces.....

Loz Samuels, festival organiser said
'
Kidderminster Arts Festival has been running for 12 years, I've been privileged to be leading it for 11 of those. I've watched KAF grow from a tiny event that attracted 2,000 over two weeks to one that last year touched the lives of over 100,000 people. The festival runs for two weeks in the middle of August each year. It gets a small amount of funding from the District Council, usually around £5,000 and I spend a great deal of time trying to raise money from whatever source I can.
KAF brings a huge amount of pleasure and pride to local people, creates opportunities to show their talents, make new friends and attracts visitors to the town helping it through the down times. KAF has a very local focus, it gives people an opportunity to be proud of what they do and where they live, I have seen their involvement lead to genuinely life changing experiences, building confidence and opening doors to new opportunities.


We run a range of community workshops allowing participants to gain new skills and have a chance to be inolved in performing such as with our street band in Birchen Coppice or our knitting workshops in care homes allowing older people to decorate the town by knitting bollard covers. There is too much to talk about here, but you can find out more by visiting our website www.kidderminsterartsfestival.org.uk.'

This funding will help us pay expenses to volunteers, provide more workshops in areas of need, buy instruments for our local groups and more. None of it will replace funding already in place.
If you have experienced the arts and appreciate the positive changes it can make and you can afford to help us out then please do, your contribution will be greatly appreciated.

A huge thank you for taking an interest in KAF and for you support.

Please come and visit us. 

Best wishes, Loz Samuels
