Oswestry CultureFest 2019
Oswestry CultureFest is on Saturday 17 August 2019 in the centre of town, coinciding with the Shropshire produce market, celebrating the wide cultural diversity in Oswestry and the surrounding area.
Not only ‘mainstream’ culture but diversity which is less often celebrated such as alternative lifestyles, disability, sexual orientation, faiths and beliefs, ethnicity and age. The day is about highlighting some of the local minority cultures, enhancing their day-to-day visibility and inclusion - celebrating differences as a positive contribution to Oswestry’s vibrant community.
The event will include food tasters from different countries, Bulgarian dance, Bhangra Dance, hopefully some Welsh clog dancing, creative workshops, and much more! The whole event is free to the public.
Arts Connection is looking for local organisations and groups to run information stalls and activities to present themselves to the public, with a focus on their equality, diversity, inclusivity, anti-discrimination, human rights and anti-hate crime work. Stalls are free but a donation to Arts Connection would be much appreciated and would help in organising the event again.
Stalls will be prioritised to Oswestry-based groups, and the first to book. A variety of groups and organisations are already confirming that they intend to be there.
If you would like a stall, please let us have your completed booking form as soon as possible, either by email to Sioned@artsconnection.org.uk or by post Arts Connection, Youth & Community Centre, Llanfyllin, Powys, SY22 5DR
We will then send you confirmation of your booking. Closer to the date you will receive a poster for promotion, details on setting up and so forth. The day is likely to run from 10am to 3pm (excluding set up and take down).
Please pass on this information to any other groups and organisations you think might be interested.
