Our festival is for everyone and so we encourage and celebrate art created locally by young people and in the community. Every year we involve around 500 Purbeck Young Artists (PYA) in schools across Purbeck in creative activities. Schools are encouraged to develop art works on the festival theme which for 2019 is “Flight of Fantasy”. The workshops have been coordinated by Helen Biles and we are most grateful for all the work she and her team of artists have put in over many months. The range of workshops span metalwork, cyanotype, rust printing, ceramics, mosaics, dance and 3D. You can see their results exhibited at Rollington Barn during the festival.
Thanks to The Friends of the Festival and our Sponsors for supporting our work with young people.
