Well, we warned you all it was going to happen and it did. Thanks to Allsortz and other funding from Children’s Services, Big Arts Festival 2010 truly was a city-wide, summer celebration of young people’s take on the arts. For those who like statistics, BAF 2010 involved over 3,000 young people, 78 schools, 51 individual workshops led by 38 artists and 8 local Art of the Community events, not to mention Big Arts Day, the Big Carnival Parade and Plym Youth Fest at Saltram House. If you weren’t involved there’s no escaping 2011 and planning is already underway. The provisional dates for BAF 2011 are Friday 2nd – Saturday 16th July. Now please read the BAF pages to get the full story.
