ART31 ‘Bounceback’ Festival 24 – 27 June

Artwork and event submissions now open!

Group of young ART31 members

ART31 is hosting a new Youth Takeover Festival: ‘BounceBack’! The festival is about celebrating the creativity young people have expressed over the past year and giving a platform to young creative voices in Kent. Those artworks and events that are selected will be presented online from 24th-27th June, with (hopefully) some live, in person events at Gulbenkian Arts Centre, on Saturday 26th June 2021.

ART31 want to showcase original art and creativity of all kinds – so whether you’ve made a music video, written a poem, created some amazing artwork, animated a film or done something else we couldn’t even think of – whatever it is, if you have had to be creative when making it and it’s original work, then it counts!

ART31 is committed to equality, diversity and inclusivity so applications are open to anyone aged 13-25 in Kent and Medway – regardless of ethnicity, nationality, gender, sexuality, disability or religion.

They would especially like to hear from young people that feel their voice isn’t usually heard or represented.

It will mostly be digital events and content this year, although it may be possible to present some live, in-person events if Covid restrictions allow.
