This year’s Lindfied Arts Festival will see a new and exciting bursary to be granted to a local resident who can demonstrate their passion and desire to start or continue an arts discipline. A panel of four local celebrity judges will determine who will receive the £1,000 grant towards the applicant’s chosen area of expertise. The bursary is open to anyone aged 7-100 who lives locally. If you are a dancer, painter, baker or artisan maker of any kind, the Festival would like to hear from you. No matter your age, occupation or previous experience, if you have a desire to start or continue your arts education you can apply for the bursary via the charity’s website.
Lynn Tulip, Festival organiser, said: “This is such an exciting initiative. The Festival is all about local arts, and this bursary is an opportunity for it to put something back into the community by supporting a resident’s artistic endeavours and development.”
In other news, the Festival programme is currently being formulated with a number of other innovative ideas added to the line-up. For the first time, there will be a food festival with artisan makers and street food sellers; the length of the High Street will be filled with a covered eating area and there will be a stage, which will play host to a wide range of performances.
Another major initiative will be a film project that captures the heart and culture of the village through the voices of its residents – all of this and more will be announced fully over the coming months.
Dates for this year’s Festival are: 21st-23rd September. If you would like more information, would like to apply for the bursary, or would like to get involved visit www.lindfieldartsfestival.com or email firstname.lastname@example.org
