Half Moon Festival aims to showcase new artistic partnerships, collaborations and events that cross artforms as well as revisiting collaborations and innovations that have forged new creative beginnings and connections between communities in the past. Through its eclectic programme, the festival aims to celebrate difference and different perspectives, to share experiences of art and creativity, to celebrate the fun and joyous moments that art offers, and to provide an antidote to the detached living of the present day.

The students are delighted to support the work of their artists during this time when the artistic community is grappling with the fall-out of the pandemic, and they are very excited to present this programme of work as their producing debut. They invite audiences everywhere to connect with them and with each other at this crucial moment when physical interaction does not define our sense of connection to community in as much as our commitment to keeping the energy of exchange alive.
