Festival Of Audacity
Various Birmingham Locations

Festival Of Audacity is a multidisciplinary festival of activist art making Birmingham its stage from Thursday 18th - Saturday 20th July 2019
Join us as we take you on a journey throughout the city to discover brave, bold, and audacious art in spaces beyond traditional arts venuesaround Birmingham.
This is about bringing art activism to the people, to everyone, making it accessible and visible for all. This year we have artists dotted around the city in the least expected places; which will turn heads and allow everyone to experience art for change.
Want to see everything we have planned? The primary way to experience the festival is to join us on a tour on either Friday 19th or Saturday 20th from 11:30pm til 5:30pm*, beginning at the 'Bull' at the Bullring. It's a guided walking trip led by BAIT through Birmingham City Centre with stops at each festival act aswell as exclusive performances in between stops, and plenty of time to pause and rest when needed.
You can expect:
- A multi-artform artist line-up including spoken word theatre show "900 Club" and filmmaker & founder of 'LAMBB' Naomi Grant. Full line-up will be unveiled at our launch event on Thursday 9th May
- A guided tour, hosted by BAIT, a group of young art activists from Birmingham, supported by Free Radical
- Regular stops to pause, rest, snack and discuss the performances
- Most importantly, an incredible one of a kind experience, with national and regional art activists being brave, bold and audacious
