Following on from last year’s “Out There” International Festival, SeaChange Arts has been awarded funding to the tune of nearly one million Euros to develop the festival over the next three years. Half the funding has come from the EU under the EU Inter-regional Programme, which means SeaChange is working with partners from Amiens, a town North of Paris, the lead partner for the project, Rouen and an organisation which runs projects throughout Britanny. In England the partners with SeaChange are the Winchester Hat Fair, Brighton Festival, Zap Art and Southampton City Council. The Great Yarmouth Borough Council is supporting the project along with other funders to complete the match funding.
Plans are already under way for this year’s “Out There” which will take place over the weekend of 19th and 20th September. The festival will focus on street arts and be centred around St.George’s Park. French tightrope walker Didier Pasquette will be walking across roof tops on the seafront and community groups are already getting involved in the carnival style opening parade on the Saturday morning.
Last year the first international Out There festival saw more than 100 performers and artists from Britain, France, Finland, Brazil, Spain, Uruguay, Cuba, Portugal and Belgium take part to entertain the public in various venues in Great Yarmouth. For more information go to www.outtherefestival.com.
