Logo - connect clusterSeptember 2013


 The arts connect people from various walks of life, bringing them into communal spaces to explore relevant issues and ideas through affective experience. This cluster of the festival challenges traditional art venues whether in stepping outside art galleries, theatres and performance halls, or by questioning such institutions from within. Festival events will connect with publics in new ways forming critical engagements with our physical and social environments.
