Kendal’s International Festival of Outdoor Arts
The XTRAX Festival Centre at Kendal’s Town Hall buzzed like a bee hive, as over 100 promoters, bookers, artists and industry professionals met to network and make new connections.
The XTRAX Showcase included exciting and ambitious outdoor work from UK and international artists. 11 companies talked about their new projects and/or work in development at the XTRAX Shorts presentations, including Metro Boulot Dodo and Corn Exchange Newbury, who are researching and developing their work with the support of an R+D grant from Without Walls. Our free discussions on “Audience Development in the Outdoor Arts sector” and “Current Challenges and Opportunities in Outdoor Arts” were attended by more than 40 promoters, artists and professionals keen to debate the issues relevant to the sector.
