Free For Arts Festival (FFAF) is an idea that has been handed over to different Manchester collectives and welcoming local audience to experience arts for free since 2009. Art Vanguard (AV) has been offered to be the host for FFAF 2018 and would like to transform 3 central Manchester venues into the worlds of Fairytale, Dream, and Fantasy.
Supporting the cooperation between different disciplines of art, AV will commission 3 new collaborative performance works to be developed by artists and premiered at FFAF. Each collaboration will have artists from varying geographical places – one artist based in Manchester, while their collaborators will either be of local (Manchester), national (Birmingham) or international (Lithuania) scale.
Artists will be working in pairs to develop 3 new performance pieces based on the themes of Fairytale, Dream and Fantasy. The creative process of these collaborations will be shared for the first time at the museum for co-creation, contribution and feedback.
