Rowan Arts is delighted to reach its funding goal for the 'Big Day Out'.
Rowan Arts' funding campaign closed on 12th June, having raised over £1,000 from 28 donations.
The Big Day Out explodes onto Whittington Park every year with a feast of colour, providing free live music, dance performances, street theatre, short film screenings, comedy, stalls and arts activities for the local people of North London. This is an opportunity to play a vital role in the commissioning of arts workshops at the Big Day Out.
Typically the Big Day Out attracts several thousand people. 2011 is the Holloway Arts Festival’s ninth year. It is produced by Holloway-based charity, Rowan Arts. The free arts and crafts workshops have always been one of the most popular element of the day, attracting a diverse local audience. Your funding can directly influence the scale of these workshops and impact on how the community sources cultural events.
