#WoWFest18

This is your passport to a journey of discovery – dive into WoWFest18 and see what’s waiting for you.

Do we want to live in a world of walls and barriers, or one of free movement and integration? ‘Crossing Borders’ will explore stories from refuges and local communities, migrant writing, diaspora, gender, sexuality, class, writing and mental health, Europe, Trump, the prison system, social justice, public enquiry, activism, race, freedom of expression & movement and will celebrate the diversity of people and art in our city.

Stepping outside our comfort zones is always a challenge, and we welcome you to cross your own thresholds and join us for incisive debates and discussions whilst celebrating the diversity of the city and looking across the horizon together with a clear vision of how we can all get there safely.

You will have noticed ‘the wall’, our large-scale public art and performance space called “Building Blocks To Freedom”. Keep an eye on this community-produced sculpture throughout the month for performances from international artists, local emerging stars, interactive workshops and fun activities to enable everyone to tell their story.

This is your passport to a journey of discovery – dive into WoWFest18 and see what’s waiting for you.
