We are excited to announce that Knowle West Fest 2020 will be happening online this year. The annual festival usually takes place in the late Summer / early Autumn and celebrates the talent, creativity and community of Knowle West.
Inspired by the many festivals that have successfully moved their activities online this year due to the COVID-19 outbreak, KWFest 2020 is going digital and will take place on Saturday 12 September.
Organising the festival is a collaborative effort, with local organisations and residents working together. Every year one organisation takes responsibility for coordinating the planning, and in 2020 it’s KWMC’s turn!
There are lots of ways to get involved:
1) Create or submit online content
This could be:
-a short video showcasing your organisation or community project
-a video of you or your group performing – either from your home or something you’ve made before (music, circus, theatre etc.)
-a live workshop or ‘how to’ video (e.g: a craft challenge, a yoga class, a cooking demo etc.)
2) Be part of the organising team
-help promote the event and spread the word
-be part of planning and event organisation
-help out on the day
-help document the event
-tech support to create your online content (video / audio / live workshop set-up)
-a small budget to cover your time and materials
