People's Art Fair: Spring // Friday 31 March - Sunday 9 April 2023

The People's Art Fair (PAF) is a ten day long cultural festival providing a platform for visual artists, poets, musicians and workshop leaders to show off their talents. PAF is kept free for artists to take part in, and all ticketed events apply the principle 'no one turned away through lack of funds'.  PAF is a natural extension of our work to break down barriers and increase inclusion and voice, and is a direct challenge to the exclusionary idea that 'real art’ is exclusive and only created by, and relevant to a small cultured, wealthy elite. PAF promotes creative cultural practice as an essential tool for people to challenge or highlight social injustice and to galvanise change.

Throughout the fair we collaborate with local social-minded creatives to offer workshops; a poetry open mic; and a music jam session, inviting everyone to share and celebrate their talents during the fair. The net result is a visually diverse and culturally rich event featuring hundreds of artworks from over 70 artists; and the emergence of a confident, mutually supportive creative community that is joyful to be part of.
