Artsfest 07 announced

Artsfest 2007, the tenth Artsfest in Birmingham, has been announced for the weekend of 14th – 16th September.

ArtsFest is looking for artists and groups from Birmingham and the West Midlands to join with us in creating a vibrant cultural spectacle that profiles the wealth of talent and diversity within the city and region.

Those of you who would like to participate over the weekend need to apply through our online forms. Please pick the category that best describes your piece of work. This will help the ArtsFest team programme your work effectively. The deadline for applications is 30th April 2007. You will then be contacted if you have been successfully programmed by the end of May.

If you would like to discuss your application prior to submission please contact the ArtsFest team on 0121 464 5678.

There’s also a Call for Volunteers:

The festival needs volunteers to help steward the events taking place, if you would like to gain some experience or just have fun and meet new friends then don’t hesitate to contact ArtsFest on 0121 464 5678 or alternatively email

Volunteering is open to anyone over the age of 18 who lives, works or studies in the West Midlands, no previous experience necessary.

And you get a really neat shirt.

There are some rather neat photos from last year’s event on Flickr, even if I do say so myself. Check out this slideshow.
