From January 2019 to March 2023 Severn Arts was a lead partner in The Arches Worcester Project and the delivery partner for the festivals strand of this project. Over the four years, the project funding provided by the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS), administered by Arts Council England (ACE), enabled the festivals team to produce a programme of brand-new festivals. This film captures the journey of building the programme; bringing international artists to the city, commissioning graduates and actively involving communities, the scale of our audiences and the positive impact achieved.
